December 10, 2016 – Pictures: Bishop Akan Weeks Reigners Bible Church Building Collapsed During Ordination Service In Uyo Akwa Ibom State, 60 Feared Dead

One of the fastest growing Pentecostal churches in Uyo Akwa Ibom state has come down.

The Reigners Bible Church founded by Pastor Akan Weeks crumbled today during the consecration of the founder Pastor Akan as a Bishop.

According to eyewitnesses, the church located along Village Road in Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom State was filled to the brim today when the whole building suddenly collapsed.

Many guests including some undisclosed politicians were reportedly killed after being trapped in the rubble for hours.

Over 100 injured people were rushed to Premier Hospital in the town today while the body of close to 60 victims were taken to mortuaries in the town.

A police source who witnessed the collapse said the casualty figure is so high.

The source said the tragedy occurred 30 minutes after the State Governor arrived.

“Just as they were about to start collecting offering, the roof of the building collapsed, killing almost everyone. A female guests’s stomach was ripped open by the roofing materials. It was such a gory scene” – the source added

What a tragedy!

May the souls of the victims rest in peace.
