On 3rd September after a down pour, a truck lorry that was fetching stones from the quarry failed to ascend uphill and slid back into the quarry causing the sorounding soils to loosen and develop cracks hence suddenly falling into the quarry pit.
Quarry workers on the site were buried by the soils. Residents made frantic efforts by applying rudimentary hand methods to dig up soils to try and rescue their colleagues to no tangible results until police deployed excavators.
