According to reports, one of the workers on the site noticed that the building was about to collapse and raised an alarm, allowing everyone to evacuate safely.
The Public Relations Department of the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) said that they are investigating the cause of the collapse.
“The tenants said there was no one trapped in the building
They said for about six months now, no work has been going on in the building
But then, when we talked to a neighbour who said there was someone plastering and when he figured out that the building was about to collapse, he came out and called people out
Nartey added that “the actual cause of the collapse has not been established, but I doubt if proper building materials were used or precautions were adhered to
The tenants were attributing it to yesterday’s rains, but that shouldn’t be the case of bringing a whole building down.
