A three-story building collapsed in Nigeria on Wednesday with scores of school children thought to be inside, setting off frantic rescue efforts in the country's crowded commercial capital.
An emergency official said they are not able to give a statistic of casualties while rescue efforts are still underway.
"I assure you that in the next couple of minutes, thirty minutes, one hour we will be able to give a comprehensive statistics on the casualties," Abubakar Mohammed, Coordinator for the National Emergency Management Agency told The Associated Press.
As many as 100 children had been in the primary school on the building's top floor, some witnesses said.
It was not immediately clear why the building collapsed.
Such disasters are all too common in Nigeria, where new construction often goes up without regulatory oversight and floors are added to already unstable buildings.
