At least ten people have been trapped in a three-storey building being constructed in the famous Beirut Road market in Kano City.
An unspecified number of people have been affected, including some people working on the construction site.
An eyewitness said that the Kano State Government is constructing the building. He confirmed that close to ten people are still trapped in the collapsed building.
Three people have been rescued so far, but residents are lamenting the late arrival of the rescue operations team. An eyewitness also said his friend was among the trapped as his number rang and he answered, saying he was suffocating.
The incident happened around 30:30pm Tuesday.
