He said, ‘Our staff have sealed off the building. It is a 40-year old uncompleted building. The partial collapse affected one section of the building.

‘We’ve invited the owner and the caretaker to our office in Awka. After our meeting with them, we will pull the remaining section down.’

‘We appeal to our people to always obtain building permits before construction. This helps the Board to monitor the development.’
