“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.”

Tunde, however, alleged that although the injured persons got medical attention, they were not treated properly because “there was no medical doctor available at the hospital” at the time of the incident.

Also speaking on the incident, the Baale of Iragbo community, Thoma Agodi said he was inside his palace when a resident came to inform him that the church building had collapsed.

“We have to thank God that there was no fatality as a result of the collapse,” he added.
