Permanent Secretary of LASEMA, Dr Olufemi Damilola Oke-Osanyintolu, confirmed the incident.

“A total of ten people were affected by the collapse, with nine rescued so far, including seven adult males and two females. The initial eight people have received pre-hospital care from agency paramedics and are now at Iga Idunganran Primary Health Care Centre receiving further treatment.
