- A two-storey shopping building has developed serious cracks and it could collapse anytime
- The NADMO and GNFS officers are currently evacuating persons occupying the building
Some traders around the Asafo Interchange in the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi are fleeing their shops as a two-storey building is fast collapsing.
Reports say some of the traders are currently moving their wares from the shops as the storey building could entirely sink anytime soon.
The five-year-old building which is located at the busiest part of the capital houses about 12 shops at the ground floor and some other residential apartments at the top floor.
According to Joy News report, the building has developed serious cracks and it could come down in no time.
The report says there are massive cracks on the walls as the top floor sinks and depresses the ground floor to cave in.
Currently, there are some officers from the Ghana National Fire Service and the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), who are evacuating all persons living in the building.
The report added that the officers are having a tough time in their evacuation service as traders defy their orders to salvage their wares in the process.
The owner of the two-storey property who only identified himself as Daniel says he was reliably informed that some criminals invaded the premises to chisel the foundation of the building at Tuesday night
