Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, the director-general of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), confirmed the incident and said the agency has activated its emergency response plan.

Olu Verheijen, an eyewitness who lives across the road from the building said that before it collapsed, the building was vibrating.

“We initially thought it was an earthquake. So, I looked down and saw that the building had come down. That is all I know,” she said.

BusinessDay gathered that the collapsed building is the 360 Degrees Towers being built by a highly regarded developer Femi Osibona.
