Five feared dead in Anambra building collapse

Nwanosike Onu, Awka

Five persons were feared dead when a three-storey building, under construction, collapsed on Wednesday in Awka, the Anambra State capital.

Governor Willie Obiano in 2014 banned the construction of high-rise buildings, especially in commercial areas.

An eyewitness, Nwafor, said the incident happened after a heavy rainfall. Nwafor said he was passing by when he heard a noise and ran away before the structure collapsed.
