Guests occupying the Metro View Hotel in Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi state, escaped death as a wing of the hotel collapsed on Wednesday.

The hotel is located at Presco junction close to Presco campus of Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki.

No life was reportedly lost in the incident.

The Abakaliki capital territory development authority sealed off the entrance of the hotel on Thursday morning.

Ejem Okoro, special assistant on capital territory to David Umahi, governor of the state, said the hotel was locked to ensure proper probe of the incident.

Autsine Orji, a member of the hotel management who spoke to journalists on behalf of the company, said the hotel management had noticed a crack on some of the pillars holding the building.

He said the management immediately commenced renovation of the building, adding that it was in the process of the renovation that the building collapsed.

Orji said those who lodged in the hotel were outside the building for a seminar when the incident occurred.
