The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that the building, which collapsed at about 1:00pm., is part of a structure being erected for a primary school at St Christopher’s Anglican Church, Odo-akpu, Onitsha.

According to an eyewitness, the collapsed building may have trapped at least five workers plastering its interior.

"The ill-fated building was meant to serve as classroom blocks for pupils of St Christopher’s Primary school," he said, adding that it was near completion.

One of the teachers at St Christopher’s Primary school, who did not want to be named, told reporters that the building collapsed few minutes after the bell signalled the end of break time.
