There are fears that at least a dozen people are trapped under the rubble of a four-storey building that collapsed in Jabi area of Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
It is understood that most of the trapped peoples were squatting in the building when it suddenly caved in.
Another eyewitness who spoke to Daily Trust said one of the trapped persons made a phone call to a friend, pleading for assistance.
“Before the officials came, we rescued four persons while one died. One of the rescued persons had a broken leg. They were rushed to the hospital. Others are still trapped,” an eyewitness said.
Rescue operation is ongoing at the site which is opposite a shopping mall and close to the popular Jabi park.
