An early morning storm has caused partial damage to a section of the newly built Police Area Command in Burutu, headquarters of Burutu local government area of Delta state.

The wreckage was preceded by a heavy storm that caused the Burutu pavilion to totally collapse on Sunday morning.

According to Okekebo Kelvin, a resident who shared photos of the wreckage, the pavilion collapsed into the Area Command structures, leading to the partial damage.

Okekebo confirmed to our correspondent that there were no casualties of any sort.


“No casualties. Just a partial damage to the Area Command,” Okekebo said.

Efforts to reach the Council Chairman Godknows Angele, as well as Burutu community Chairman, Comrade Ekisah Herman Ebizimor proved abortive as calls to their phone were unanswered.

The collapsed pavilion usually played host to socio-economic and socio-cultural activities in the community.
