By Emmanuel Mgbeahuruike

Owerri — No fewer than four persons including two babies lost their lives in another building collapse in Owerri, the capital of Imo State.

Two corps members were among the unconscious victims who were dogged up from the debris of the collapsed building by the Red Cross Society and the Imo State Emergency Management Agency.

Our correspondent gathered that the two-storey building located opposite the Owerri Area Police Command Headquarters, which was occupied by families within the low income bracket, caved in about 3:30am, while the occupants, were still deep asleep.
