Firemen rescue man, 52, from collapsed duplex in Kano


The Kano State Fire Service on Thursday morning rescued a 52-year-old man, Mallam Mohammed Zakiru, from a collapsed duplex at the Kofar Na’isa Quarters in Kano.

The service Public Relations Officer, Alhaji Saidu Mohammed, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Kano that Zakiru was trapped in a collapsed building in the early hours of the day.

“We received a distress call today (Thursday) from Musa Muhammed, who lives in the neighbourhood, at about 6.45a.m that a building had collapsed.

“On receiving the information, we quickly sent our rescue team and a vehicle to the scene at about 7.20a.m,’’ he said.

According to him, Zakiru, who sustained serious injuries, was rescued and rushed to the Murtala Mohammed Teaching Hospital.

He advised the general public, who live in old houses with cracks, to either vacate the houses or renovate them, particularly during the rainy season to forestall collapse. NAN
