Tragedy: Building Collapses In Ibadan, Eight injured.
Few weeks after a building collapsed in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, another uncompleted storey building located on Jericho/Eleyele road Ibadan, beside the Total Filling Station, on Tuesday, collapsed, injuring eight people.
The victims, who Peesreporters.com gathered were working at the site of the building, which is under construction collapsed, have been taken to various hospitals in Ibadan.
An eye witness, who was also one of the workers, Kazeem Adebayo, said work was still ongoing before the unfortunate incident happened.
“We have been complaining to the site engineer that the poles used as support for the decking were not strong enough to hold the building, but all our complaints were taken seriously, as the site engineer was only concerned about the completion of the work.
Although, nobody died in the collapsed building, eight persons were reportedly injured and have all been taken to Jericho Specialist Hospital for treatment”.
