A heavy downpour Tuesday night pulled down a bridge at the Children’s Amusement Park in Owerri, built during Gov. Rochas Okorocha’s administration.
The statue built by Okorocha in honour of former South Africa’s president, Jacob Zuma continues to stand tall in Imo.
There are suspicions that the bridge, located at the Ikemba Ojukwu Centre in Owerri, may have been built with substandard materials.
NAN reports that the state Chairman of the Nigeria Society of Engineers, Emeka Ugoanyawu, had earlier warned against substandard engineering work in the statue.
The incident which caused pandemonium in the area, gave room for criticism by some parents whose children visited the place on May 27 during the 2018 Children’s Day Celebration.
