A three-storey tenement building located on Nweke Awkuzu Street in Ugbene area of Ahakpa Nike township in Enugu metropolis collapsed on Friday evening.

The building is behind the popular Timber shed market, near Cornerstone, Nowas – T.Junction Road.

According to our source, the building was nearly completed, roofed, barely remaining fixing of windows and painting.

The source added that “for over four years now, the house had been like that, without tenants legally occupying the building, but many occupied the place unlawfully.”

However, the source noted that besides unlawful occupants of the house and those who built temporal zinc structures to live inside the place, there are other possible casualties, because the house is located in a relatively business area.

Meanwhile, as of the point of filing this report, it has not been possible to visit the scene due to heavy downpours in parts of Enugu.

Casualties, figures could also not be verified, as well as the. level of damage, injuries sustained and to evaluate the level of collateral damages inflicted on the nearby buildings, passersby or any other vital information.
