A building collapse in Anambra State has killed a nursing mother.

The incident happened in Obosi, near Onitsha, in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Fortunately, the victim’s six-month-old baby was reportedly rescued alive while many others are suspected to be trapped in the debris.

A few other survivors were also pulled out from the wreckage.
