Governor David Umahi confirmed the incident in a statement on Saturday.

The Governor was acknowledged. His Media Aide, Nwaze Francis, expressed dismay at the occurrence in a statement.

“The Governor of Ebonyi State, David Nweze Umahi, has received with rude shock the disturbing and unfortunate news of the toppling of a part of the roof of one of the shades at the Ekeaja Market, Uburu which resulted in the loss of about three lives while two others were hospitalised,” the statement said.

Umahi, who termed the incident as devastating, expressed his condolences to the families of the three people who died.

“We cannot question God as humans, but we pray ardently for God Almighty to grant the victims peace in his bosom and console their families,” Umahi added.

The Governor asked the Police and other relevant authorities to conduct an immediate full-scale inquiry into the incident’s immediate and remote causes.

According to reports, the victims fled towards the shade to avoid a strong downpour in the region.

Strong gusts accompanying the heavy rain were alleged to have blown away a portion of the structure that had fallen on them.

One of the casualties was a 14-year-old girl who died on the scene, while others were brought to the hospital, where two more were subsequently declared dead.
