Construction project in Nigeria collapses, killing four

An incomplete two-storey construction project in Dutse Alhaji, Nigeria has collapsed, killing at least four people. Local reports suggest that the ‘abandoned’ building was in fact home to a number of squatters from immigrants to poor artisans. Nine injured parties are said to have sustained serious injuries and are being treated at a local hospital.

Eng. Mayas Adoyi, Assistant Director at the Council for Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria told Daily Times NG: “Our appeal to the general public and developers is: do not embark on any construction project without a registered engineer. You must always insist on engaging professionals.”
