He recounted that the building collapsed during the early hours of Sunday while several construction workers were on the top floor.

“The building started from the fifth floor to collapse. The building is at the finishing touches and the fifth floor was almost finished when it collapsed and other floors followed suit.

“There are about two workers in the building that are trapped and those injured have been rushed to undisclosed hospitals,” the source said.

The Public Relations Officer of Anambra State Emergency Management Agency, Chinyere Nwoye, said that they were yet to be informed about the collapsed building.
