At least four students were killed and 14 others injured when an Islamic school building collapsed in the town of Bukuru in Nigeria’s Plateau state, the state coordinator of emergency services said.
“We are still working under the rubble for more bodies and injured,” Abdulsalam Muhammed, the state coordinator for the National Emergency Management Agency, said.
The two-storey building collapsed while there were about 40 students of various ages inside, teacher Danlami Muhammed said. Reuters reported.
One of the parents said the building was poorly constructed by the local community and believed heavy rain had contributed to its collapse.
