The Enugu State Police Command has stated that no life was lost in the collapse of a three storey building which was underconstruction in the state.
This was made known via a statement issued by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu.
According to him, the incident took place on Wednesday around Monarch Avenue axis of Independence Layout in Enugu metropolis.
He said “From preliminary investigations, it is clear that no life was lost in the incident and no other property was lost rather than the collapsed building under construction.
“The members of the public should discountenance any other information to the contrary on the incident being circulated in the social media.”
Further speaking, Amaraizu stated that the cause of the incident is yet to be established.
“Investigation on the incident is still on as the Command plans to get to the bottom of the matter,’’ he said.
An eyewitness, Mr Clifford Eze, substandard materials used by the engineers may have caused the collapse.
