At least four people have died and more are feared trapped after a building under construction collapsed in Aba, Abia state.

The three-story uncompleted building on Azikiwe road in Aba has reportedly been a refuge for some homeless residents who take shelter there.

Unfortunately, the building collapsed in the wee hours of this morning, September 16, crushing its inhabitants.
