Attah said many are still feared trapped under the rubble of the building suspected to be a shopping mall in the 7th avenue in the Gwarimpa area of Abuja while seven were rescued.
“As of 2: 41pm on Thursday, we have rescued seven persons. Out of the seven, five looked stable while two have been taken to the hospital due to their unstable condition,” Attah said.
So many of them are still there. Many of them are still calling their relatives under the rubble.”
