Abdulkadir Nasiru, a 20-year-old construction worker, was killed when a two-story structure in Kano State’s Kanti Kwari textile market fell on Tuesday.

 

Naziru Shafiu, Nasiru’s coworker, was pulled alive from the under-construction structure and survived the disaster.

 

The Kano State Fire Service spokesperson, Saminu Yusif, confirmed the event to Vanguard and blamed it on the use of shoddy construction materials.

According to him, “we received a distress call around 12 noon on Tuesday about the incident.

“A two storey building under construction collapsed in Unity road, Kantin Kwari market.

“Two persons were trapped inside the building. One, Abdulkadir Nasir, 20-year-old was rescued alive while the other, Naziru Shafiu, 30-year-old was recovered dead. The corpse was evacuated to Nasarawa specialist hospital.

“The ground and first floor of the building have been completed but not yet plastered and not in use while work was ongoing on the last floor before the incident happened.

“The cause of the incident is use of substandard building materials,” Yusif however stated.
