Newly Completed Students Hostel Collapses Near UNIZIK In Awka.
A tragedy was averted after a newly completed hostel near Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) in Awka, Anambra state capital, collapsed earlier today.
It was gathered that the new building was awaiting rentage by the students before it collapsed this afternoon.
According to eyewitnesses, no life was lost in the incident which saw labourers and others narrowly escape during the collapse.
This is coming after a four-story building collapsed some months ago in Owelle-Aja layout Obosi, in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State.
The structure, located off Tony Eze Street, was said to have collapsed shortly before the construction workers resume work.
A resident of the area, who gave her name as Obiageli, described the soil texture of the area as soft and easily washed away by the rain.
