About 12 people narrowly cheated death, yesterday, as a four-storey building under construction, crumbled at Umukehi, Orji, in Owerri North Local Government Area of Imo State.
Some of the residents around the vicinity, complained that they were not very comfortable with the way the structure  was erected, and blamed the collapse on structural defects.
It was gathered that prior to the collapse, the owner of the edifice allegedly noticed some dangerous cracks in the building and invited some engineers who advised that it could be stopped from collapsing.
“It was during the process of trying to salvage the structural defect that the entire building went down,” said an eyewitness.
The witness affirmed that no life was lost in the disaster, stressing that the building collapsed as soon as the last workman came out of it.
“I thank God that no life was lost in the disaster. The building went down as soon as the last workman came out of it.
‘’It would have been a very bad tale if the workers were still inside the building when it came crashing,” the witness said.
All efforts made to reach the owner failed as nobody around the vicinity accepted that he had the man’s contact.
