Three persons have been feared dead after a multiple stories indoor sports complex at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, Delta State, collapsed.
The two-storey is under construction in preparation for the 21st National Sports Festival (NSF) to be hosted at the stadium from November 28 2022.
It was gathered that among the dead were construction workers at the site of the building while injured persons were rushed to the hospital.
The collapsed building was recently inspected by Minister of Sports, Sunday Dare, who said the facilities were 80 percent ready for use.
Although, the cause of the collapse is yet to be ascertained, it was learnt that it would not be unconnected to the rush of the construction to meet the deadline for delivery of the project for use.
