Workers escape dëäth as 5-storey building collapses in Nigeria


When a 5-storey building under construction in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi state capital, collapsed, several employees were spared.

According to LindaIkeji, the building at Ebonyi State University’s Ngbabor Presco campus collapsed at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7.

Chris Anyanwu, the State Police Command’s spokesperson, confirmed the event to the media on Wednesday, June 8, saying “no casualty was reported.

According to a member of the community, the laborers working at the site ran out when the building started vibrating and eventually collapsed.

In the meanwhile, government authorities have investigated the fallen structure to determine the cause of the catastrophe.

A team of Police officers and Ebubeagu operatives were also on the ground to cordon off the collapsed building to avoid any form of casualty.

Government officials have cautioned residents not to approach the remaining unfinished structure for their own safety.
