No few than six members of the Deeper life Bible Church, located at Iragbo community in Badagry, Lagos state, were injured on Sunday, sustaining serious degrees of injuries when the building of the Church collapsed during heavy storm while the service was in progress.

Our correspondent reports that heavy rain which was later followed by a heavy storm led to the collapse of the Church building around 9:30 a.m.

One of the members of the Church who was also a victim, Mr Topohozin Tunde, told our correspondent that six members of the church sustained serious injuries.

“I also sustained a serious knee injury, but thank God no live 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 medical attention were given to them, but they were not given proper treatment because no medical doctor was available at the hospital.

“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.

Also speaking, Chief Thoma 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.
