The Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service disclosed this late Sunday on its Twitter handle.

The service assured that rescue operations have begun to save anyone trapped in the building.

However, the Zonal Coordinator Southwest, NEMA, Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, told NAN in Lagos that the deceased persons included three males and two females.

The number of rescued occupants remained at 23.

Rescue operations are ongoing at the site of the incident in search of four of the remaining occupants of the building.
