One cheats death, as building collapses in Ogun

The Ogun State Police command on Thursday said, a man simply identified as Seun, was on Wednesday pulled out of rubble of a collapsed building in the Old Bank area of the Ifo, in Ifo Local Government Area of the State.

Confirming the incident, the command Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola, said the victim was receiving treatment at Demark hospital.

Odutola said, “the victim is responding to treatment after being rushed to one Demark hospital. The entire place has been closed off. We have also contacted the Local Government Authority to seal off the affected area,” Odutola told our correspondent in a WhatsApp chat.

It was reliably that the collapsed building had been distressed for a long time, before it finally caved in at about 5:20 p.m on Wednesday .

Although, no casualty was recorded, but the stairs of the collapsed building fell on the victim, who was trapped for hours before help could reach him by some people who were at the scene of the incident.

In a one-minute video shared on social media, residents were seen mobilizing resources to rescue the victim from the rubble he had been trapped in.

While dragging him out of what seemed like a channel, the rescuers asked for water to be poured over the victim, who looked unconscious in the video.
