Six persons are feared dead after a building collapsed at Ezenwa Street Onitsha, Anambra state this afternoon Wednesday, May 22nd.
According to eyewitnesses, the Four-storey building which was under construction, collapsed at about 2pm, trapping many of the artisans working in the construction site. The cause of the collapse might not be unconnected with the weak building materials used for the construction.
Seven persons have been rescued alive while the remaining six, including the contractor, were still entrapped in the rubble. Some of the trapped persons are still answering their phones. Efforts are being made to rescue everyone alive.
