Building collapse in Ibadan, one feared dead

An uncompleted 2-storey building collapsed yesterday at Ologuneru in Ido LGA of Ibadan city with one feared dead. According to those who were working at the site, they head a deafening noise at about 2pm, which made them all run out for safety but unfortunately, the tipper driver who supplies sand to the construction site didn't run fast enough and got trapped in the building as it collapsed.

Men from the Nigerian Security & Civil Defence Corps, Federal Road Safety Corps & other agencies were involved in rescue efforts but were not able to lift the heavy debris to rescue the man on time.

The site engineer reportedly fled the scene immediately the collapse happened.

May the man feared dead, RIP.
This is as a result of cheap labour and recruitment of unqualified engineers; could/would have been avoided.
Just a tip of the iceberg;

How can a building fall like this? This engineer must be a member of the BH. He should be dealt with when apprehended.
