About 2000 students who were participating in a competition escaped a fatal fate at the collapse of a stadium which their games were supposed to be held.
The indoor sport hall of the U.J Usuene Stadium has collapsed after a torrential rainfall hits Calabar on Friday.
The part of the stadium was under construction for over two years and the contract was awarded by Former Governor Liyel Imoke to Uzuola Giwa-Amu. A contractor who absconded with nothing less than 2.5 Billion Naira.
Pictures released by the Director General of Sport Commission, Orok Duke, shows that the whole structure built to house at least 50 thousand people has only 8mm rods in the pillars and deckings platforms.
The structure which collapsed this afternoon, happened at a time when the children competition taking place in the stadium was suspended to observe the Easter Holiday. According to Orok Duke, more than 2000 children would have been crushed to death.
The shady side of the story is that Governor Ben Ayade is aware of the dubious contract and how it was a drain pipe project of the Liyel Imoke admimistration, but has refused to order an investigation into it.
