"They finished working and one went inside to check their work with ladder.

"When he was coming out, the place started sinking and he was shouting for help.

"The other guy tried to draw him out and fell into the deep pit with him and before people could get a bigger ladder, they both died inside there. 

"Their death is strange. I think the owners of the place know what happened.

"Police should hold them because I heard they finished their work and were called back to check it properly before they finally didn’t come out until people brought out their bodies."

Abia state Public Relations Officer, Geoffrey Ogbonna, when contacted, said the incident has not been reported to the state command.

The owner of the site failed to return so many phone calls made to him by journalists.
