Six persons were reportedly trapped when a two storey building collapsed in Aguleri-otu in Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State.

It was reliably gathered that the victims, suspected to be casual workers, were under the building when the structure, said to be under construction, caved in.

Eye witness, who blamed the incident on use of substandard materials, 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.

Confirming the incident, a Director in the SEMA, Mr. Chukwudi Onyejekwe, disclosed that six persons were rescued from the building, adding that no life was lost.

On his part, the Chairman, State Material Testing and Laboratories, Ebosie Ezeoke, alleged that the structure was constructed within two months, describing it as highly unprofessional.

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

It was further learnt that the rescued victims were rushed to a nearby hospital for proper medical attention. (Daily Trust)
