The nation’s capital, Abuja, had a two-story plaza in the Garki District of Lagos Street, Garki Village, that collapsed. In the midst of a severe downpour on Wednesday night, 9jaknow gather from Vanguard that the structure fell.
Two of the 37 persons who have been rescued thus far have been described as “fatally injured,” according to emergency officials.
They said that because there was no quick access to an excavator and all rescue efforts were manual, activities had been sluggish over the course of the previous night.
37 people have been rescued at the site of the fallen structure, according to Dr. Abbas Idriss, Director General of the FCT Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), who confirmed the news.
He claimed that the injured had been flown to different Abuja hospitals.
Thirty-seven people have apparently still been trapped, but those who have been rescued have been taken to a hospital. Others and the rescue squad are on the ground. Since it is still raining, rescue efforts are underway, but slowly. He said, “They are working feverishly to get an excavator so they can pull people out of the debris.”
The DG expressed gratitude to all parties involved for their diligent manual efforts in rescuing individuals who were stuck, including community members.
He disclosed that the rescue effort is still ongoing as they wait for equipment to improve operations.
