5 killed as building collapses in Ibadan

TRAGEDY struck in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Thursday morning, as five construction workers died while two others sustained injuries when a church building under construction collapsed.

The building of the New Covenant Church, which is located at Sagbe, Idi-Ose, opposite the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) in Akinyele Local Government Area of the state, collapsed in the early hours of Thursday.

The victims, Nigerian Tribune learnt, were waiting to collect their daily wages when they were reportedly trapped.

Those who sustained injuries were said to be receiving treatment at Folawiyo Private Hospital in the area.

The  Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr Godwin Ogaga-Oghene, who confirmed the incident, said five people died in the incident.

He said that the combined team of the FRSC, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and the state fire service was at the scene to assist the victims.

The state governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, who visited the scene of the incident, ordered that thorough investigation be carried out on the circumstances leading to the collapse of the building.

The governor, who was accompanied by his wife, Florence and some government officials, blamed the incident on the failure of the contractor handling the project.

According to him, the contractor  was using inferior materials with a view to reducing cost.

“If the contractor had not compromised quality, this incident would not have happened,” he said.

He regretted that despite repeated warnings that people should ensure quality in everything, including building, they still use inferior quality.

Meanwhile, the New Covenant Church has expressed shock over the collapse of the new church building.

The church’s National Overseer, Reverend Olufemi Oyelade, in a statement, said that a committee of engineers and other relevant professionals had been set up to investigate the remote and immediate causes of the  collapse.

He explained that this was to prevent a recurrence of such in any of the church’s building sites in future.

According to him, the action was without prejudice to investigation by the government and regulatory bodies.

Oyelade, who commended the state governor and his wife for visiting and joining in the rescue operation, commiserated with the families of the deceased

The water level of the Brahmaputra was maintaining a rising trend following heavy rainfall in the Upper Assam districts of Tinsukia, Dibrugarh and Dhemaji with several villages affected and road communication affected in some part of these districts.

The worst affected villages are Dadhia, Sarisuti, Tengabari, Karomi and Mohmora at Chabua under Dibrugarh district with vast tracts of paddy fields inundated in flood water.

59 km of land eroded in Sonitpur

 TEZPUR, June 6 – For years, flood and erosion have been causing untold miseries to thousands of people in Sonitpur district. The Brahmaputra and its tributaries like Jiabharali, Gabharu and Belsiri are now posing a serious threat to lakhs of bighas of crop land and residential plots.

The people of Gohpur, Biswanath, Tezpur, Barchala and Dhekiajuli LACs in Sonitpur district particularly those who have been living on the banks of the river Brahmaputra, Jiabharali, Gabharu and Belsiri, covering a distance of more than a hundred km have expressed their strong resentment over the alleged indifferent attitude of government and even the local public representatives towards this serious issue.

Over 59 km of distance area have been eroded in Sonitpur by the aforementioned rivers till date which have come to light in an RTI report filed by this reporter here. During the last 10 years, crores of rupees have been spent for checking the problem but no any positive result is achieved.

According to the government record about 200 meter land have been eroded by river Brahmaputra in Arimora Suti, Paken and Saraibahi area under Gohpur subdivision in Sonitpur district while the water resource department sources disclosed that about 2 km distance of land have been eroded by river Brahmaputra in Behali-Silmari area under Biswanath subdivision.

Likewise, 4 km in Panpur in Biswanath, 5 km from Biswanath to Solmari, 1½ km in Bhoojmari have been eroded by Brahmaputra river, while in Tezpur from Bhumuraguri to Jahajghat, Parbatia, Gabharu, Singri, Teligaon and Sitolmari areas falling under Tezpur and Barchala LACs in Sonitpur atleast 28 km have been eroded by river Brahmaputra. On the other hand at a time when 43 km land have been eroded by river Brahmaputra in the district, river Jiabharali has eroded 12.50 km land.

Record says that 2 km in Bordikorai, 3 km from Samdhora to Orang basti, 1½ km in Singitoli, 2 km from Dikoraijan to Kuttamora, 1 km in Kurukani and about 3 km land have been eroded in Rajgar-Tengakhuti area due to the erosion caused by river Jiabharali. Moreover, due to the erosion caused by river Gabharu under Barchala LAC five hundred meter in Barbil, 1 km in Meghaijarani, seven hundred meter in Nabil, the people of these areas have become almost land less for their cultivation.

Equally, the Belsiri river under Dhekiajuli revenue circle in Sonitpur district has created sever erosion in almost 2 km distance in Keherokhunda, Besimari and it’s adjoining areas. It is remarkable that even after the lakhs of bighas of farming land, school, temple, government offices alongwith dwellings of people have been threatened due to the erosion caused by the aforementioned four river including mighty Brahmaputra and it’s tributaries Jiabharali, Belsiri and Gabharu during the last ten years the department concerned of the state government has not taken any proper measure to check the problem.

Hundreds of villagers, representing several families have since lost their homes and hearth as the land-gobbling rivers mentioned above inches it way towards the hapless realities.

Meanwhile, it is alleged that the state’s erosion problem persist even after crores of funds have been sanctioned following the indifferent attitudes of the department concerned and a section of corrupt officials. More importantly, to check the burning problem, though a big budget project naming “Geotextile” with the estimation of Rs 167 crore was ventured it has not been resolved as the member of the Brahmaputra board failed to place the same in the platform of central empower committee.

Likewise, the scheme of Rs 42 crore to check the erosion in river Jiabharali is yet to be executed due to the alleged siphoning of the sanctioned fund.

While exchanging views in this regard national organisations like AASU, ABSU, and AJYCP who have been demanding the centre as well as the state government for the years to declare the flood and erosion problem as a national problem to reflect the issue in the national level, said before this correspondent that with out a positive mentality of the government and the officials of the department concerned to deal with the issue sincerely the flood and erosion problem could not be solved here. “So we urge the government to make a through study over the issue and deal with the same reflecting a permanent solution towards it”. They maintained.
