Another building has collapsed and killed one person in the Greater Accra Region within just a week.
One other victim survived with injuries.
The latest incident occurred at Nanakrom, also in Adentan, just like the first one.
It happened on Thursday, 4 May 2023, in the evening.
First responders from the national disaster management organisation managed to pull out the body from the rubble on Friday morning.
The police has launched an investigation into the incident.
There was a similar incident within the constituency on May Day which killed one person and injured three survivors.
The supervisor of the three-storey building that collapsed, Mr Ganiyu Abdul, was arrested by the police.
It took a rescue team from the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) and the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) to rescue those trapped under the rubble.
Two of the injured have since been treated and discharged.
The three-storey buiding was situated at SDA Junction at Adentan, close to the footbridge.
According to the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS), one of the pillars of the building was crushed by a concrete mixer which caused the building to lose balance and resulted in its collapse.
The equipment of the building contractor has also been confiscated following revelations that the project had no permit.
