Abuja Building Incident, a Controlled Demolition – FEMD


The Federal Capital Territory Emergency Management Department has clarified that the incident initially reported as a building collapse in an Abuja estate was actually a controlled demolition due to structural defects, and no lives were lost.

It was earlier reported that an unconfirmed number of workers were feared dead after a building at Nicholas Ukachukwu’s Praco Limited Estate in Guzape, Abuja, collapsed on Friday.

It was also reported that a rescue operation was going on but had been hindered by the heavy rainfall.

Debunking the incident during an interview, the Acting Director of General FEMD, Florence Wenegieme, told newsmen that the incident was not a case of collapse but a structural defect.

“it was a structural defect but the owner decided to demolish it completely. She also clarified that, there was no loss of lives, and no one was trapped. FEMD rescue team was there with Asokoro divisional police, NEMA, and FCT Red Cross”, she said.

She emphasized that the press should always contact her to confirm any future developments.
