About 100 people confirmed lost their lives when the domed roof of the Reigners Bible Church in Uyo collapsed today during the bishop ordination of Akan Weeks, the owner of the church.
According to an eyewitness, reportedly one Miss Ediomo who narrowly escaped death at the scene:
“The incident occurred immediately after offertory collection, while the ordination of Apostle Akan Weeks as Bishop was the next item, according to the programme.”
“We heard a strange and loud sound, then the building started falling.”
“Governor Udom would have been no more, but for one of his aides who immediately pushed him out of the building.
Unfortunately, the aide was killed by the fast descending roof after he pushed the governor who fell outside.”
