About twenty persons were trapped under the rubble of a four-storey building that suddenly collapsed in Abuja on Friday.

Two corpses were evacuated from the building which is situated within the Jabi /Utako motor park, opposite Panda Shopping Mall, close to Sigma Estate in Abuja.

The building was affected by vibration and shrapnels during Boko Haram’s bombing of nearby Thisday newspapers office in 2012 and scores of its window glasses remained shattered.

Officials from the Federal Fire Service, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), National Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and other responders were busy with the search and rescue operation at the scene on Friday evening.

The usual busy traffic around the area was turned into a serious traffic jam because of the situation and the heavy downpour while people driving through Utako to Jabi/Life Camp were particularly affected.

The cause of the building collapse is yet to be established.
