Some students of the department of Management Sciences, Enugu State University of Sci-ence and Technology (ESUT), who were trekking to their lecture hall yesterday, scampered for safety as they were stunned by the noise from a collapsing two-storey building under construction.
The building is said to be owned by the Speaker of Enugu State House of Assembly, Hon Ed-ward Ubosi and erected very close to their lecture compound.
An eye witness disclosed to The AUTHORITY that no life was lost as none of the workers was at the building site at about midday when the incident occurred.
Further checks revealed that the collapsed building is located within the range of plots of land carved out from the temporary site of ESUT beside Mkpokiti junction, Ogui New lay-out and shared to politicians.
It was gathered that the officials of Enugu Capital Territory Development Authority (EC-TDA), visited the site of the collapsed building immediately and sealed it off. Attempts to reach the state commissioner for Enugu Capital Development Authority (ECTDA), Hon Chidi Aroh before filing this report was futile.
