A building located at Ezeluike Street, Olympic Layout, off One Day, Agbani Road, Awkunanaw, Enugu South collapsed after been marked for demolition by the Enugu Capital Territory Development Authority (ECTDA).
Though there is no record of casualty yet, it was gathered that the collapsed three-storey building was one of the buildings the ECTDA had marked “Stop-Work” since last year November.
A source hinted that “the ECTDA does not issue approval at Olympic Layout where the building collapsed.
“It would have demolished the property last week but suspended action in compliance with the lockdown and other proactive safety measures aimed at containing the spread of COVID-19 in the state.”
Meanwhile, the ECTDA, FRSC, Fire Service and Red Cross officials are said to be on ground at the site for rescue operations.
