Gov. Udom Escapes Death... Over 50 Killed As Church Building Collapses

In what would have been a major tragedy, Governor Emmanuel Udom escaped possible death by not arriving on time at a church programme he was suppose to attend in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State.

According to a witness, The Reigners Bible Church, located along Uyo Village Road, was filled to capacity because its pastor was being consecrated as a Bishop, when the tragedy occurred.

"Many people are buried under the debris as emergency workers continue rescue operation."

The witness said the Church was being renovated and upgraded because of the expected high number of guests on Saturday.

Governor Udom Emmanuel was expected to attend the occasion, but, sources said he was not at the church when it collapsed.

“The governor has gone to the scene and is presently there helping with the rescue,” a witness said.

PT sources said many victims have been taken to various hospitals and mortuaries in the town.

Over 50 persons have been confirmed dead. Oh dear...this is tragic.
