Ini Edo narrates how God saved her from the Uyo Church Collapse

But for cancelled flight and traffic gridlock, Nollywood actress Ini Edo would have been at Reigners Bible Church when its roof collapsed, killing dozens of people.

The Special Assistant on Tourism to Akwa Ibom State Governor took to Instagram to narrate how she escaped death and to condole with families who lost their loved ones in the tragic incident. Read her full post below:

“2 days ago,I was very bitter about the unreliable nature of some of our airlines cancelling flights without prior notice thereby hindering my plans to attend a church service ceremony held in uyo. Now out of determination, I took a flight to calabar with the hope of being in uyo just in time for the service since the journey between calabar and uyo was just about an hour.

The journey ended up taking over 7hrs because of an unexplainable traffic.No accident, good road no hitches just a headlock traffic. Whilst in the car, I started wondering why all my efforts to be at the service was being thwarted… then I got a call, that the entire church building had collapsed during the course of the service …. Once again, God had saved me.

My heart goes out to the families of the departed..may the good Lord grant them the heart to bear the loss. Everyday we see is a’s not because we are special or better.

It’s the exceeding Grace of our Lord Jesus.Iam so humbled and grateful to God for preserving me… Happy thanksgiving…..”



  1. Thank God for your lucky escape
    You and others like you who jump from pillar to post, from one church to another, from Jerusalem to Jericho, from Mecca to Medina, must have seen that all those outward display of religious faithfulness cannot save anyone
    God only cares about the workings of our inner heart and not by what we proclaim to be or by how much we worship him
    Wether you are christain, Muslim, traditional worshipper, Hindu, Budhist or atheist, you would be loved by God and redeemed, as long as you do good on earth
