The Deeper Life Bible Church, located in the Iragbo community of Badagry, Lagos, injured some members when the church structure collapsed on Sunday.
According to NAN, the church structure collapsed at 9:30 a.m. as service was in progress due to heavy rain. The incident resulted in no fatalities.
One member of the church said six members of the church were seriously injured.
“I also sustained a serious knee injury, but thank God no life was lost. At around 9:30 am, during the church service, there was a heavy storm that hit the church building, and before we knew 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 was not much, I decided to take care of myself.”
He, however, said that while the injured people received medical assistance, they were not adequately treated since there was no medical doctor at the hospital at the time of the incident.
