A four-storeyed building Friday collapsed in the Jabi area of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, killing two people instantly while many others are still trapped within.
Eyewitness told DAILY POST that the building collapsed because it was built with substandard materials.
Scores are still trapped as men of National Emergency Agency, NEMA, Nigeria Police and other security agencies have been mobilized to the scene for rescue operations.
One of the police officers told our correspondent at the scene that, “We have been able to rescue five persons. Two people have been confirmed dead while three have been rushed to the hospital.
