According to reports, the owner of the building and several of his engineers, are currently trapped in the building.
They were having a routine meeting when the building collapsed.
Except for a fire service team, very little rescue effort is ongoing.
An eyewitness, Muhammad Tukur shared photos from the scene and wrote ;
Literally saw my life before me. A 12-storey building in Ikoyi collapsed before my eyes. A reminiscent of the 9/11.
I don’t think I’d be alive to tweet this if it were the one closer to our window. Our office was vibrating as the building was collapsing.
