Construction workers were reportedly trapped in the wreckage of a four-story building that had collapsed and was being built on Iman Street, off Aka Road, in Uyo, according to Metro.

State Deputy Governor Moses Ekpo said he was at the scene to get firsthand information about the situation and to express sympathy to those who lost loved ones in the tragic incident. Moses Ekpo was accompanied by other government officials, including the state Commissioner of Police Olatoye Durusinmi.JAMB Result

He said, “I came here first and foremost to sympathise with the families of those who lost their loved ones and since I came, the question I have been asking is where are their relations?

“We must also investigate why and how it happened to ascertain the personalities that are involved. It is after the enquiry that the state government would know what to do, but like I said earlier, whoever violates the building regulations, the law must take its course.

Tepikor, in a follow-up reaction, said the injured victims, rescued by emergency responders who stormed the incident scene, had been receiving treatment in hospital.

He said “I was informed about this incident around 7pm yesterday on Saturday and I quickly mobilised relevant stakeholders including the Federal Road Safety Corps, the Civic Defence, the fire service, and the Red Cross.

“I advised that they should contact any construction company to mobilise their excavator because what we needed was to rescue people alive.

“So, that commenced yesterday up till now and that is what is still going on. So, we have recovered one dead body here and the other died in the hospital because of multiple injuries.”

Tepikor said it was possible that the developer of the collapsed building got approval but the terms of the approval were not followed.

He added, “Substantial material may have been used, so if there was enforcement of building codes, we would have been able to stem the tide of building collapse.”
