The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), has said that all bodies trapped under the collapsed Lagos Island building has been recovered.
Punch reports that the General Manager of LASEMA, Adeshina Tiamiyu said that the last body was recovered from the debris of the collapsed building at about 3 AM and that he also debunked news that the school on the collapsed building housed over 100 pupils. He said: “We stopped work at 3: 00 a.m after recovering the lifeless body of a male and we are sure there is no casualty left under the debris. I have seen the picture of the building before it collapsed and I can confirm to you that the floor that housed the school cannot accommodate up to 100 pupils.”
While Punch has also published a list of 41 people that survived the collapse, a health worker shared that some of the survivors were transferred to LUTH, LASUTH and the accident centre at Tollgate to decongest the Lagos Island General Hospital.
