The identities of those killed when the roof of Reigners Bible Church International church in Uyo, collapsed are emerging. One of them is Queen Ekong.

Her friend and one of the survivors, Nonye Richy confirmed the sad news in a Facebook post. She is currently being mourned online by her devastated friends and family members.

“Yeaa. Its true that i was in the church building wen it fell, its true that the buliding fell on me buh i dont know how i got out alive.

I tot it was a joke wen i cane out alive until i saw the gal sitting closed to me split in halves by the rod. Also my fwnd, Peace Udoh who I signalled to get me a copy of the programme, also Queen Ekong who I saw there too were confirmed dead.

Finally, am here to say ‘thank you’ to the only God that saved my life, many who were better than me lost their lives that day hut I don’t know how God did, I don’t know why he did it but what I know is that God made a way for me to he alive till today..words cannot express how grateful I am to God first and then to you all for the numerous calls, text, posts, prayers and sound words. I also thank God for my Fwnd who went there with me Etieno Shugaboo Samuel, we came out alive. Am just speechless.

#My heart bleeds for the lost members. I pray God gives the family the fortitude to bear the massive loss”

  1. Another avoidable loss of life. Shame on those who designed and/or constructed the unsafe building. Unlike Nigerian laws, the laws of physics can never be shortchanged.
