“So far, some people who sustained injuries as a result of the collapse have been sent to the hospital but we haven’t recorded any death so far. What caused the collapse of the building, nobody can tell now because there was one person who lived at the top of the building and he says all he heard was that the whole building just came down. He said it was very late in the night hence we’ve not been able to detect what caused the collapse. But that is what we are investigating now and we shall update you,“ he said.

Four persons reportedly sustained injuries.
