1 dies as building collapses in Ondo


Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) of the Ondo’s State Command reported the death of one person in a collapsed structure in Akure’s Fanibi neighborhood on Tuesday.

Mr Hammed Abodunrin, the state’s Commandant of the Corps, said several trapped occupants of the storey structure had been rescued.

The incident happened at 3 a.m., according to Abodunrin, while the residents were sleeping.

The remains of the deceased, a woman, had been removed and put to the hospital mortuary, according to him.

”The corps has made it a priority to educate members of the public on how to protect themselves against such danger.

”A building would not just collapse, there must have been some tangible signs before it collapses.

“We want members of public to be aware of the dangers to their lives and the basic things they should watch out for, not only banditry or kidnapping.

“There are many other issues that can take our lives, so, we should be more vigilant.

“Those who are constructing should know the kinds of structures to be built on some lands,” he said.
