Eight Injured In Asaba Multiple-Storey Building Collapse

Yesterday in Asaba, Delta State, a section of a building currently under construction opposite ShopRite in the state capital collapsed around 5 p.m. while workers were on-site. Approximately eight individuals were injured in the incident.

Although the precise details of the event were not available at the time of reporting, an eyewitness named Onyinye Okei mentioned that she and others selling outside the premises were startled by a sudden crashing sound. Okei added that the injured individuals were swiftly taken to the hospital by their colleagues.

State Commissioner for Urban Renewal, Mr. Michael Anoka, attributed the incident to a structural defect in the building, as he informed reporters during his inspection of the site.

Anoka, who said there was no casualty, noted: “The ministry is still investigating. The government is already taking measures and as you can see, the compound has been sealed. After our investigation, we will come up with a report of what happened here today.

“Everybody should be calm, the government has already started measures before this incident today. We are trying to put up a process that we will be able to avoid such situations.”
