5-storey building under construction collapses in Onitsha

A 5-storey building under construction near Dennis Memorial Grammar School in Onitsha, Anambra state is reportedly collapsed.

An eyewitness said the building collapsed on Wednesday morning at around 7:15am.

The source, however, could not confirm the rate of casualty. Another eyewitness said no casualty was recorded.

“I was going to work this morning when I saw it. The entire building came down in rubbles.

“I don’t think there were casualties in the building because work was not ongoing on the project this morning.

“The cause of the collapse has not been ascertained, but many bystanders who watched from across the road suspected that it may be as a result of use of substandard materials,” the source said.
