The Ibadan Building Collapsed late Friday when workers and site engineers were rounding off the day’s work.
Recall that insideoyo.com had earlier reported how a building, located in Sogoye, along Bode, Molete area of Ibadan collapsed suddenly on Friday while still under construction, with several people injured and others trapped underneath.
In a report by The Punch, constructions workers and artisans at the site explained what happened.
One of the site workers, Dauda told The Punch that he was working with other artisans on the third floor when the building suddenly gave way.
“I just heard a sudden blast and later found that I and others in the building have been trapped in the rubble,” he said.
According to one of the rescuers who gave his name as Aafa Mojeed Agbaje, two of his relatives — Tunde and Rilwan Oladepo — were also victims of the collapsed structure.
Agbaje said: “I am worried because other people that I know are presently in the wreckage. Tunde sustained injuries on his face and limbs. We have taken him to Molete Hospital and he is recuperating.”
The Ibadan Building collapse came few days after a similar collapse happened in Ita-Faaji Lagos Island claiming lives of many including school children.
An engineer told Insideoyo.com on Saturday that though the reason for the collapse is not yet ascertain but blamed the ugly incident on sub standard building materials.
