BackgroundThe collapse of the uncompleted three-storey church building occurred last Tuesday at about 2:30 pm. Prophet Akoa Isaac who is the leader of the church told the police in his caution statement after his arrest that he was sick and lying in his residence on the same compound of the Church when he heard the sound of the collapsing church building. One of the survivors gave this account: “We were resting in the church building after fasting and prayers so whilst resting, we heard portions of the building coming down. Some residents say construction of the church building started in 1996 hence they suspect that its structural integrity continued to weaken through years of inactivity and shoddy work.
