Six trapped in Obiano’s community after building collapses in Anambra

www.odogwublog.com reports that two storey building under construction has collapsed in Aguleri-otu in Anambra East local government area of Anambra state, trapping six persons.

The incident was blamed by an eyewitness on use of substandard materials.

The eyewitness said it took the timely intervention of the state emergency management Agency SEMA who alerted other state agencies, including the Red Cross to rescue the trapped persons.

A Director at the SEMA, Mr. Chukwudi Onyejekwe said 6 persons were rescued while no life was lost.

As well, the Chairman, state Material Testing and Laboratories, Ebosie Ezeoke, said the structure was constructed within two months, a development he said was totally unprofessional.

He however revealed that the sample of the materials used for the building have been collected for technical analysis and further investigation.

The rescued victims had been taken to the hospital for proper medical attention.
