A two-storey shopping plaza located at the ever-busy Lagos street has collapsed in the Garki area of Abuja. 

TechnocratMedia learnt that the building caved in during a heavy downpour in the area at around 11:50 p.m. on Wednesday. 

Ikharo Attah, former aide to the immediate past minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), confirmed the incident on his Facebook page around 2 a.m., and said 37 persons were rescued from beneath the rubble. 

Attah said rescue teams were trying to save more trapped persons. 

He added that two badly injured persons alongside the rescued have been hospitalised.

“So far 37 persons have so far been evacuated to hospital, two fatally injured; others reportedly still trapped; rescue team and others are on the ground,” Attah posted on Facebook. 

“Rescue operations on but slow due to ongoing rain. They are making frantic efforts at getting an excavator to remove people from the rubble.”
