Owner of collapsed Imo building seeks probe

Tue May 12th, 2020 - Imo

Mr. Chinedu Anujuru, owner of the collapsed eight-storey building under construction in Owerri, Imo State, has called on the state government to set up a judicial panel of enquiry to determine the remote cause of the incident, adding that the estimated cost of the project, when completed, is at N4.8 billion.

Speaking to newsmen in Owerri through his counsel, Soronnadi Njoku, Anujuru said the panel would ensure transparency and a fair hearing for him and other parties involved in the matter.

He appealed to the government not be in a haste to pass judgment on the matter, insisting that he obtained necessary approvals from relevant quarters and also engaged competent consultant, professional architects, engineers and builders for the project.
