#BlackSaturday: Photo from the Uyo church tragedy, as bus also catches fire in the State
Hours after a church building collapsed in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, with many feared dead, a bus belonging to the Akwa Ibom Tranport Corporation, has also caught fire, along Calabar-Itu road, but fortunately, no life was lost.
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, witnesses said.
A witness said the Church was being renovated and upgraded because of the expected high number of guests on Saturday. Gov. Emmanuel was expected to attend the occasion, but, he went late and escaped the disaster.
