Barely a week after a building belonging to the Christ Chosen Church of God collapsed in Benin City killing three people, another church building has collapsed in the state.
Building belonging to liberty Power Bible Church a.k.a Power Palace at Asoro Slope, off Ekewan road in Benin city, Edo state, collapsed yesterday.
According to reports, the incident happened shortly after members of the church left the building shortly after church service. No life was lost.
According to the land owner where the church was build, Ajor Sylvanus, who told reporters that the building collapsed because it was not properly built.
“The storm that followed the rain was much but I have been complaining about the building structure. The pastor built the church like a fence, no pillar. The block is just ordinary sand. I have been telling him that no pillar would cause the building to collapse. The building fell on my building and damaged many things. I thanked God that nobody died. When the pastor came, he was concerned about the musical instrument in his church and thanked God that his church members were not around when the building fell. I had to call the police. The building has already cracked and I have been warning the pastor that the building will collapse.” he said
