A three-story building prison wall located at No. 22 Nkisi Aroli street in Onitsha has collapsed after a heavy downpour in Anambra state.

No life was lost in the incident, neither did any prisoner escape. However the scene was cordoned off by the Police to stop any unforeseen development.

Value of the property is yet to be ascertained, the owner was however identified as Chukwuma Njeka.
