Three Injured As Four Storey Building Collapses In Kwara State




A section of a four storey building has reportedly collapsed in Ilorin on Thursday afternoon, injuring three persons.

It was gathered that the building was in a complex housing five buildings of four storey each while construction was still going on.

It was gathered that two of the workers on construction site sustained minor injury while the injury sustained by the third worker was reportedly serious.

They were said to have all been rushed to an undisclosed hospital for treatment.


A student of Unilorin, Joy William, who witnessed the collapse narrated the incident, saying, “We were inside the room, then we heard a very loud noise and I went out. That was when the building just collapsed. It happened this afternoon. We heard somebody shouting ‘help, help’ and people rushed to his rescue. They rescued one person and later rescued the second person. The third person was badly injured. They rushed the three of them to the nearest hospital.

“The collapsed section of the building is a mosque but the back side is an apartment. The workers were the ones that did the rescue work, there was no external person or equipment to rescue the people that were shouting for help. The workers have been on the site for about five months now. This is a new building”, she said.
