ONITSHA – The Onitsha Anglican Diocese on Saturday gave the committee to probe its collapsed four-storey school building 21 days to complete the investigation.
Chief Oseloka Offor, the Director of Communication at the diocese, said at a media briefing in Onitsha, Anambra State, that the committee was expected to unravel the immediate and remote causes of the incident.
“The eight-man committee is made up of professionals and experts. They will also certify the quality of work on all the ongoing projects in the diocese, to stem further occurrence,’’ he said.
Offor said the bishop of the diocese had directed members of the parochial church committee to give assistance to the families of the workers who lost their lives in the collapsed building.
The director said the collapsed building was an ongoing project undertaken by some members as a donation to the church.
The Bishop on the Niger, Rt. Rev. Owen Nwokolo, inaugurated the committee to investigate the collapse of the building at St. Christopher Anglican Church, Onitsha.
Four masons were reportedly killed on June 2 when the building collapsed. (NAN)
