Tragedy was averted in the household of Akwa Ibom Governor, Mr Emmanuel Udom, when he escaped death by whisker on Saturday morning.
It was learnt that the Governor was at Reigners Bible Church, located along Uyo Village Road, Akwa Ibom, for an ordination programme when the church building caved in.
The Governor was said to be very lucky to have escaped death unlike others who reportedly could not make it out alive.
It was reported that his decision to be at the church programme late was his saving grace.
According to reports, the pastor of the church was being consecrated as a Bishop, when tragedy struck at the church filled to capacity.
However, the exact human casualty figure is still unknown, but victims have been taken to hospital and mortuary in the state.
