A wing of the popular hotel in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, had collapsed on Wednesday evening around 7pm.

However, there was no fatalities as not less than 60 people made it out alive.

Confirming the arrest, the spokesperson of the command, DSP Loveth Odah, said: “I want to tell you that the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Kpirikpiri area reported to the command that a wing of a two-story building housing a hotel near Presco campus of Ebonyi State University, collapsed last night.

“After talking with the DPO of the area of that incident, he confirmed the arrest of the owner of the hotel. He was invited to give his own side of the story of the incident.”
“As I told you, the matter is being investigated and if at the end, we found out that the materials used in building the house are substandard by experts, we will go ahead and enforce the law on him but for now, it is not arrest per se but an invitation for us to hear from him, so that it will enable us unravel the course of the collapse of the building,”
