A building belonging to the Salvation Ministries has collapsed in Asaba, the Delta State capital killing several people and  others still trapped in the debris.

The church building which was said to be in use for the first time was reported to have collapsed at about 5:55 p.m. on Tuesday.

In a video circulating on social media, worshippers and sympathisers were seen crying at the scene of the collapse as efforts were on to rescue some victims who were trapped.

A male voice which appeared to be that of the video recorder was heard saying, “This is the children department that collapsed. We have lot of children still trapped.

“Already we have some death toll. It is a very critical situation right here in Asaba, Okpanam Road by Rainoil, Salvation Ministry.”

Work was ongoing on the building, which was alteration to the original plan, and against the "stop work order"  by Delta State Building Control Agency, conspicuously  written on the wall of the building.

As at the time of filing this report, the Delta State Commissioner for Health, Ononye Mordi, and the Red Cross team were at the scene of the collapse helping to rescue trapped victims.
