One Dead, 15 Others Injured as Shopping Mall Collapses
A woman died while fifteen others were wounded at the Itoku Market, in Ogun State, when a four storey building shopping complex which was constructed by the state government collapsed on Friday Morning.
The incident occurred at about 9:00am, which was an hour after traders and workers have resumed their daily business and activities.
A total of two excavators and a crane were sent to scene so as to help victims that were trapped in the debris.
The wounded victims have so far been taken to the hospital and are currently receiving treatment.
As the 11am on that same day, the gate leading to the hospital was closed, so as to give a clear signal that the hospital can no longer accommodate any extra cases of the emergencies.
Security agencies were also fully on ground to control the crowd who are anxious to know the fate of their friends and loved ones who were injured in the incident.
