Labourers trapped in collapsed 6-storey in Abuja

A six-storey building under construction which was meant to be a hotel, collapsed this morning on 444 Crescent , Citec Villas , Gwarinpa. The incident reportedly happened at about 1.00 am.

Five labourers were trapped inside and three have been rescued by combined efforts of the Police, NEMA  (National Emergency Management Agency) and the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA ).

The iron rods used for the pillars gave in like wood and the concrete work were said to be as brittle as ordinary sand. Efforts are still going on to rescue the two innocent laborers trapped under the rubble.
