No fewer than six people are severely injured after the Deeper Life Bible Church, located in the Iragbo community in Badagry, Lagos state, in Nigeria collapsed on Sunday, April 24.
According to a member of the church, Mr. Topohozin Tunde, who also sustained a serious knee injury, heavy rain, followed by a heavy storm, caused the church building to collapse at around 9:30 a.m. yesterday.
“I also sustained a serious knee injury, but thank God no life was lost. Just around 9:30 this morning, during the church service, there was a heavy storm which hit the church building, and before we could know what was happening, the whole church building collapsed. Some were able to escape, while about six of us sustained serious injuries. Those that were seriously injured were taken to the General Hospital in Badagry for proper attention. Since my injury is not much, I decided to take care of myself”.
