ESUT students escape building collapse

ESUT students escape building collapse

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.
