Five people have died following the collapse of a poorly constructed building in the Ndokoti Neighbourhood in Douala. The incident occurred on Saturday 18th June 2016 at 8am after a heavy down pour. After the collapse of the building, two lifeless bodies were discovered at 8am, one of them identified as Bassong Tchekam Alain Zacharie 41 year old man who was residing close to the construction site.
Later on in the afternoon, three others were found. But it is obvious that the death toll might increase onlookers indicate that tens of people were in the uncomplete building that had a drinking spot on its ground floor. The Littoral Governor Samuel Dieudonne Ivaha Diboua and some security officers visited the site of the incident where they noticed that the building was poorly constructed with low quality building material. While the remains were taken to the Logbaba Hospital Mortuary, the owner of the construction site is presently under Gendarmerie custody pending investigations.
