According to an eye witness operator, Okochukwu Nnadi, he said the incident happened around 4 a.m on Sunday.“I came out very early to convey earlymorning worshipers to church beforethe collapse happened.

“I was the one who rushed to the police station near the house to alert them on the incident.“I was shocked to see four people already dead when they were brought out of the place,” he said.

Gov.Rochas Okorocha, who later visited the scene said, “This is very sad.”“I will take drastic measures to checkmate sub-standard buildings inthis state, regardless of who is involved,” he said.

Okorocha assured that the state government would take care of the medical bills of the victims recuperating in the hospital.
