Dele Timothy, who lives in the area told newsmen that six people had been rescued and more people might still be trapped in the rubble.
He said, “I stay around the area; the building that collapsed is a residential building and the incident happened around 9.30pm. People are still there, but rescuers have been able to pull out about six people.
Officials of the Lagos State Fire Service are already on the ground, but they are unable to gain entry yet, because the road to the scene is really bad.
