The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency(LASEMA) Manager, Adeshina Tiamiyu, has said that the agency has stopped rescue operations because there is no more casualty left in the rubbles of the collapsed three storey building in Ita-Faaji area of Lagos Island, Lagos State.
He said they stopped work at about 3 am this morning after recovering the lifeless body of a male and we are sure there is no casualty left under the debris.
Some residents of the area have however faulted LASEMA for calling it to quit so fast, insisting that there are still casualties in the rubbles.
In his own word:
“We stopped work at 3 am after recovering the lifeless body of a male and we are sure there is no casualty left under the debris.”
He added that he could not give the casualty figure but the ministry of health would release the accurate figure later in the day.
