An uncompleted storey building yesterday collapsed at the Apo mechanic site area of Abuja.
Although nobody died, the three men working at the site were trapped. They were later rescued.
Spokesman for the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Yushua Shuaib confirmed that three people were in the rubble and had been taken to the National Hospital, Abuja where they are receiving treatment.
An eyewitness, Paul Nwankwo, said the building collapsed about 7am.
He said he was at a local eatery having breakfast when he heard a loud sound and he rushed out to find that the building had collapsed.
“I heard a loud bang and rushed out. Then I discovered that the building had collapsed.
“I ran to my house to get a shovel and a digger and together with the other people we rescued the three victims, though two of them were severely injured,” the witness added.
