Onitsha - An uncompleted four-storey building at 20 Ukaeje Street, Awada, an out-skirt of Onitsha in Anambra collapsed on Friday.
A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), who visited the site on Saturday, observed large number of people coming out to catch a glimpse of the incident.
Mr Steven Okechukwu, a resident of the street said that the incident took place at about 12 p.m. on Friday.
Okechukwu said that no life was lost, although some unused building materials were still in the debris of the building.
"As you can see, the collapse of the uncompleted building suggests that sub-standard or inadequate materials were used in it.
"There had been at least monthly incidence of collapsed buildings, especially the newly-built ones in Onitsha.
"And till now Anambra Government has not been out with a clear regulation and frame-work to check these death traps being erected,’’ he said.
Mr Ojo Momodu, Station Officer of Isiwolu Police Station, Nkpor-Awada, said that the incident had not been reported to the police.
"We are just hearing about it and no one has come to report the incident.
"Although with your information, we would go down to the spot and investigate it,’’ Momodu said.
NAN recalls that in September, an uncompleted five-storey building collapsed at 5 Nnewi Street, Fegge in Onitsha.
