“The building was one of the oldest building in Port Harcourt known as colonial building. I believe it’s one of the abandoned properties in Port Harcourt after the civil war. It caved in at about 2.00am Wednesday but no life was lost. There were no occupant in the building as of the time it collapsed” the witness said.

Spokesperson of the State Police Command, Iringe Grace Koko, who confirmed the incident, said there was no occupant in the building before it collapsed.
