No fewer than six people were injured, five of them critically, when The Deeper Life Bible Church, located at Iragbo community in Badagry, Lagos state collapsed on Sunday.
The building collapsed at about 9.30 a.m while the service was in progress, amid a heavy rainstorm.
One of the members of the Church who was also a victim, Mr Topohozin Tunde, confirmed six people sustained injuries.
“I also sustained a serious knee injury, but thank God no life was lost.
“Just around 9:30 this morning, during the church service, there was a heavy storm which hit the church building, and before we could know what was happening, the whole church building collapsed.
“Some were able to escape, while about six of us sustained serious injuries,” he said.
Tunde said first aid was given to them.
“Those that were seriously injured were taken to the General Hospital in Badagry for proper attention.
“Since my injury is not much, I decided to take care of myself,” he said.
Chief Thomas Agodi, the Baale of Iragbo community, 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 is no fatality as a result of the collapse,” he said.
