Obinna, who could not hold a second after the tragic incident, launched a live video coverage reporting the state governor to public.
He said “Enugu People are you seeing this. This a pedestrian bridge they are constructing for us in Gariki. While they were still building it collapsed. You have seen it.
“They a gathering back the concretes. A taboo has happened in our state. This is the type that will kill people after commission.
“They Enugu is God’s own State but look at it, bad work has taken over.
He confirmed no casualty was recorded.
Some of hos friends already reacting to the report revealed that some other bridges are standing the same fate.
Ogo D’Mora, who equally expressed shock noted that the bridge at Holy Ghost will soon collapse because of the obvious structural failure.
