Newly Built Shopping Plaza Collapses in Abeokuta, South-West Nigeria.

on

Western Post Nigeria says it was a four-storey shopping plaza.

It is not clear if anyone is trapped under the rubble.

We also don’t know why the building collapsed.

But, a civil engineer who has studied why so many buildings collapse previously told the BBC that builders quite often use cheaper materials which aren’t strong enough to withhold multi-storey buildings.
