Many Injured as Hotel Collapsed in Delta

No fewer than seven people sustained injuries after a popular
hotel, the Mekaval hotel situated in Effurun-Warri in Delta state
collapsed at about 2am today September 9th.

The injured were
mostly indigenes of neighboring state who had come to the state
in search of a miracle at the Christ Mercy Land Church, headed by
one Pastor Jeremiah Fufeyin, popularly referred to as ‘Ijaw TB

Delta state deputy Governor Kingsley Otuaro, who visited the
scene of the incident attributed the cause of the collapse to
structural defect.

"The state government has ordered that the hotel be closed
immediately to avert further loss of lives. We are going to send
engineers straight away.

It is very possible that there have been
some structural defect ab initio during construction works
because that place seems to be a waterlogged area and maybe
the proper engineering works were not done.” he said

One of the victims of the incident, Adeza who is an ADC to one
of the northern state First Lady, said she was in the state to seek
for spiritual help for her many family troubles
“I am a Muslim, but I came here to see the man of God. Only
recently I lost my elder brother who was in the Army and so
many things had been happening in my family.

 So I came here
for prayers.”she told The Nation
