A building under construction has collapsed in one of the GSM markets in Kano.

The building is located on Beirut road, a very busy area in Kano. Many people are feared trapped in the rubble as of the time of filing this report.

According to a witness, some of the persons inside the building when it caved in could not be rescued because there was no available equipment.

The voice of one of the trapped victims could be heard when he was called on the phone.

“We just called his number and he is picking calls. Only that there is no way for him to escape,” one of the witnesses said.

Meanwhile, a member of the rescue team who got to the scene early, said an excavator in on its to the place to boost efforts to rescue all the trapped victims.

The development comes less than a week after a building under constriction in Abuja collapsed, leaving two persons dead. (Daily Trust)
