NADMO, Police to probe cause of Dzorwulu school building collapse


The National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) says it will collaborate with the Police and the Ayawaso West Municipal Assembly to investigate to ascertain the cause of the collapse of a new school building.

Speaking to Citi News, Deputy Director in charge of operations at NADMO, Abu Ramadan said the entire structure had been pulled down as a preventive measure while authorities probe the incident.

“The rest of the structure has been pulled down and the debris has been collected. We need to look at the probable cause of the collapse. We need to look at the drawings and approval that was given for the building to be constructed and we will also speak to the workers. We need to understand the cause of the collapse. We should not jump into conclusion. We will coordinate that with the Police,” he said.

Two people were reported dead and six injured after a new school building block for the Dzorwulu Primary and JHS School collapsed on them.

The timely intervention of firefighters and Police Officers saved more workers from further injuries.

The Senior Officer for the Urban Search Rescue Team at NADMO, Yaw Kiatchery told Citi News that the entire structure will be pulled down to prevent a similar occurrence in the future.
