“We were standing opposite the building before we heard that noise but we could not run to the building because it was collapsing at that moment but three persons who would have been trapped in the building were rescued with minor injuries” the witness reported.

According to Orji ;
“This is the problem that we have been talking about both in Onitsha South and Onitsha North local government areas”
“Look at the building and you will discover that the building was bound to collapse “
“This building is on less than half plot of land and the soil is too weak yet they went and built a five storey building on top of it”
“I had to rush here to assist and I got a call from the governor to see to it that there are no lost of lives but we learnt that three persons were rescued.
