At least seven persons, including a nine-month old baby escaped death by the whiskers when a two storey building located on Freeman Street, Oyingbo collapsed after Monday’s heavy rainfall.
Though no death was recorded, an eyewitness told Daily Trust that a yet to be ascertained number of persons sustained severe injuries.
The witness said those who were injured were rushed to a hospital for treatment. Among those rescued included a pregnant woman and a nine-month old baby identified as Kikelomo.
Chief Executive Officer, LASEMA, Dr. Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, said there was no casualty, as his rescue team arrived at the scene on time to rescue those trapped in the collapsed building.
