A three-storey building at the Dunkirk area near the Asafo interchange at Fante New Town in Kumasi is sinking and could collapse.

The building was detected sinking at dawn on Wednesday and according to the Ashanti Regional National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) Coordinator, Mr Kwabena Nsenkyire, the building has sunk dangerously for more than a metre.

The building is located behind the railway station and sitting on the Subin river drainage at the Fante New Town area.

“We have called the Police to come in and assist in protecting lives and property. We are not aware of any casualties and injuries yet,” Mr Nsenkyire said and added, “we are still around the area and will inform the public on other developments.”

The building has since been cordoned off.

Emmanneul Baah reported that the structure which was about two years ago was detected with several cracks Wednesday morning

Personnel of the Ghana Police Service, Ghana National Fire Service and the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), were at the scene

The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) Chief Executive Officer, Mr Osei Assibey Antwi who later visited the scene ordered that the structure should be pulled down.

The building was later demolished.
