Photo: Imo Film Academy Collapses Barely A Week After Commissioning (


Okay, so I have been receiving mails from some people that the Imo State Film Academy which I reported here on the blog has collapsed barely a week from the commissioning of the new place, but I refused to publish the mails because I tried to find out if it was true and the person I got in touch with denied it… Hmm.

But alas the building actually collapsed few days after Governor Okorocha commissioned it. Some reports have said it collapsed as a result of substandard material, but the state commissioner for Information, Engr. Chidi Ibe has finally spoken about the incident, and says it was as a result of an accident. Hear him;

“There was nothing like collapsed building. It was a trailer carrying a heavy generator and while trying to drop the equipment behind the Film Academy, one of the trailer’s tyres pulled and the trailer fell on the building. The impact of the trailer’s fall led to the collapse of the building,” he said. Check out some official photos from the event after the cut.
