Popular church in Akwa Ibom collapses during event, about 18 people lost their lives with many wounded - (Warning: Graphic Photos)

Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! Have mercy! What a sad day.The foundation building of a popular church in Uyo, Reigners Bible Church located at Uyo Village road, off Barrack road collapsed today while a church event was ongoing there. About 18 people lost their lives when the doomed roof collapsed 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."
