Tragedy In Anambra State As Storey Building Collapses Killing 3 Persons

A two-storey building under construction at Ndiagu in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra has collapsed, killing three artisans.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the incident occurred at about 8a.m. on Wednesday.



An eyewitness told NAN that three other persons, who sustained severe injuries, were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Those that rushed to the scene of the incident and assisted in the rescue mission included the Commissioner of Police in the State, Mr Hosea Karma and the Divisional Police Officer in Ogidi, Mr Hassan Musa.

Karma, who described the death of the artisans as “unfortunate and untimely”, urged the people in the area to take heart and prayed for the repose of the souls of the dead.






The police boss said that the corpses of the deceased had been taken to Iyi-Enu Hospital’s morgue.

President-General of Ogidi community, Chief Chuka Onubogu, attributed the collapse to substandard building materials.

Onubogu appealed to contractors and those involved in building projects to ensure that genuine materials were used. (NAN)
