Amusement park bridge built by Okorocha collapses in Owerri

The bridge at the Children’s Amusement Park, located at the Ikemba Ojukwu Centre in Owerri, Imo, constructed by Governor Rochas Okorocha’s administration, has collapsed.

NAN reports the incident took place on Wednesday, but claims nobody was killed or injured.

The incident occurred after a heavy downpour on Tuesday night.

The bridge, being a major tourism site, has been used to generate funds for the state government.

When contacted, the State Commissioner for Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment, Mrs Ogechi Ololo, said she was yet to be briefed on the cause of the incident.

Another witness, Mrs Mary Nlemadim, said: “It is unfortunate that this is happening in the state, especially at a place that is supposed to be a recreation centre.

“I thank God that it happened in the night when people were not around; otherwise, there might have been casualties.

“I urge the state government and engineers working on construction projects in the state to be more dedicated and thorough.”
