According to Mrs Margaret Adeseye, Director of Lagos State Fire and Rescue Services, Badagry Fire Station has rescued five victims from the building under construction while concerted efforts are underway to rescue the remaining trapped victims.

The victims, who are mainly construction workers, were however rescued with varying degrees of injuries but in stable condition and were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment.
She added, however, that four adult men have been recovered (unconscious) so far.

Adeseye noted that Nigerian Police, Morogbo’s Division and community members compliment the efforts of Lagos State Fire and Rescue Services in the rescue operations.
