The spokesperson of the agency, Ibrahim Familoye, stated this in a telephone interview with PREMIUM TIMES on Friday night.
The building, which was initially a two-storey complex, was being refurbished with three additional floors already added to it when it collapsed.

Mr. Familoye, who had earlier indicated that about three persons died and 20 others injured, said the agency could not rescue more victims because the church chased its officials away.

“The church members attacked us,” he said.

“First responders ran away for their own safety. I don’t know what they’re hiding, they said they are capable of handling the situation but they doing a shoddy job of it. People are still trapped in the rubble.

“If we were allowed to work we would have worked all night but the safety of the emergency responders comes first. If they can attack us in the day, there is no knowing what they would do at night.”
