A two-storey building under construction in Abuja collapsed on Saturday, trapping 10 persons with one seriously injured.
The incident happened behind Dawaki Modern Market, in the Galadima area of the Federal Capital Territory about 10.30am.
Some of the occupants, who were workers at the site, sustained injuries, the News Agency of Nigeria reported.
Officials of the National Emergency Management Agency, FCT Emergency Management Agency, Fire Service and the Nigeria Police Force responded to the distress call and rescued the workers.
FEMA Director-General, Alhaji Idris Abbas, said emergency response was swiftly activated immediately the agency got the distress call.
He added that based on the report the agency received, the building was a bungalow but the developer was trying to upgrade it to a two-storey building.
Ten persons were trapped, three were rescued and were taken to the hospital while others are okay,” he said.
He also advised builders to desist from contravening the building plan as approved by the development control department of the FCT.
