Six persons have been confirmed dead in a 3-storey building that collapsed in the Ebute Meta area of Lagos State on Sunday.
The dead include a bread seller and her foster son, David, as well as an elderly woman and her son, Paulin.
The Zonal Coordinator Southwest, of the National Emergency Management Agency, Ibrahim Farinloye, disclosed this on Monday in Lagos.
Farinloye said the recovered bodies were those of a mother and her child, while the rescued people included seven children and 16 adults.
“Nine of those rescued alive have been treated and discharged.
“They returned to the scene, but have been taken away for proper custody while psycho-social and post-trauma counselling are being arranged for them by the Nigerian Red Cross,” Farinloye said.
