Today the 10th of December 2016 will remain an unforgettable and terrible day to remember in the minds of members of the Reigners Bible Church, Uyo has the supposed enthronement of Apostle Akan Weeks, the General Overseer of the church ended halfway tragically as the roof of the uncompleted edifice of the church caved in killing scores of worshipers.
Amongst the dignitaries at the venue of the ordination
was the Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom state, Gov.
Udom Emmanuel who miraculously escape the scene of
the collapsed building with slight scratches on his hands
but that can not be said of the members of the church,as an undisclosed figure states that more thantwo hundred people were feared to have be crushed by the heavy metal which was used in building the the roof of church auditorium that collapsed on them. Many of the dead and injured where rushed to the states own hospital and at the federal medical center (UUTH) and some private hospital in the state capital.
The Pastor and some international and local men of God were rushed to the government House Clinic, including some of the governor's aides and commissioners. As of time of reporting this news, no one knows the actual numbers of the VIPs who might be amongst the dead victims. At the site of the incidence, it could be seen that the engineers who did the roofing of the church did a shubby and unprofessional job on the roof which could have caused the collapse. Only the roof of the edifice callapsed while the other part of the edifice remain intact.
Carisgold Media confirmed that the Government of Akwa Ibom State will take legal action against the engineers and the owners of the church.
