Three people sustained minor injuries yesterday when a section of a four-storey building undergoing restructuring caved in in Ilorin, Kwara state.
It was gathered that the restructuring was being done to conform with observation and advise of the state’s Town Planning Authority.
The incident occurred at about 10am along Sulu Gambari road in the state capital. Those injured were said to be working on the site when the incident happened and have been taken to hospital as at the time of filing this report.
It was gathered that the Town Planning Authority had earlier advised the owners of the building to restructure the project and that they were carrying out the counsel when the section collapsed. However, there was no official confirmation of this claim as at press time.
“We thank God that it was not a very serious problem and there was no casualty”, a man at the site said.
The spokesman of the state police command, Ajayi Okasanmi, who confirmed the incident however. said that no life was lost.
