Four killed, six injured in Imo State building collapse

It was reported that the cause of the building collapse is due to structural defect. The landlord had allegedly added two more floors to the building without approval from due authorities.

A three-storey building collapsed on Sunday, four persons have been confirmed dead while six others are rescued alive.

The incident occurred at 9, Egby road, fire junction in Owerri, Imo state.


The Imo State Commissioner of Police, Chris Ezike, said no arrest has been made but the landlord of the building is at large.

However, the Imo State Government has mandated all ongoing construction to seek re-verification before completion.
