Media reports say three people, including a teenage girl and her little brother, have died after a telecoms mast collapsed in Mile 3 axis of Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

The structures collapsed after torrential rains in the city, claiming the lives of the 16-year old girl and her younger brother. Their mother, identified as Mrs Eucheria Charles, escaped unhurt.

Chukwudi Dimkpa, MD at the Rivers State Signage and Advertising Agency, said a signage pole also fell on impact from the telecom mast.

Dimkpa, according to a Nigeria CommunicationsWeek report, noted that most signage poles in Port Harcourt are not properly maintained adding that efforts would be intensified to inspect and maintain other signage poles in the state.

Almost all the practitioners are aware of what it means for a pole to collapse. We have been harping on proper maintenance.

It is unfortunate that this incident happened when the rain was falling. We sympathize with the families of those that lost their loved ones.

We will investigate what actually happened to that signage pole and take the necessary actions,” said Dimkpa.

At the time of writing the piece, it is unconfirmed if the affected family will be pressing any charges against the unnamed telecom company whose mast fell or the agency responsible for the proper installation of masts and signage poles.
