Three persons who suffered various degrees of injuries are alleging that management of the mall and the assigned insurance company has done little to compensate them.

In an interview with Citi News, one of the victims, Goodness Opara, a Nigerian, explained how the issue had negatively impacted him.

He narrated;

“We were abandoned. We went to the insurance personnel and they told us they will get back to us. They got back to us and we were told we have to get residence permit-without it the clearing process cannot continue.”
