Four persons were killed and six injured on Sunday when a three-storey building collapsed in Owerri, Imo state.

The incident occurred at 9 Egbu road, by fire service junction in the state capital.

Although state emergency management agency is yet to issue an official statement on the incident, reports have it that a “structural defect” led to the collapse.

The landlord, whom the state police command said is currently at large, allegedly added two more floors to the initial structure without approval from relevant agencies.

Chris Ezike, the state commissioner of police, said no arrest has been made.

Rescue efforts are still ongoing at the scene of the incident.
