One of the victims, Goodness Opara, bemoaned the negative impact the issue has had on him.

“We were abandoned. We went to the insurance personnel and they told us they will get back to us. They got back to us and we were told we have to get residence permit-without it the clearing process cannot continue,” he said.

Fear gripped shoppers at the Accra Mall on Thursday, October 11, 2018, when parts of the ceiling of the electronics hub shop caved in and injured at least three people.

Eyewitnesses disclosed that the three persons were directly under the area that caved in.

President Nana Akufo-Addo expressed his sympathies to victims and also called on Ghanaians to work together to improve maintenance culture to forestall such accidents from recurring.
