Scene of the incident
Five labourers are still reportedly trapped while many others have been rescued after a 6-storey building under construction as a hotel collapsed this morning at about 1.00 am on 444 Crescent, Citec Villas in the Gwarinpa area of the federal capital territory, Abuja.
According to online reports, the collapse of the building was allegedly as a result of some concrete works involving iron rods as pillars which were said to be as brittle as ordinary sand.
As at the time of filing this report, the combined efforts of the Police, NEMA and FEMA are still going on to rescue the other innocent labourers trapped under the rubble.
