Saraki calls for probe into callapse Uyo Church

President of the Senate, Senator Bukola Saraki, on Sunday sympathised with victims of the uncompleted Reigners Bible Church, which collapsed in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, on Saturday.

He also called for investigation into the cause of the collapse, which caused the death of about 200 persons and injured many others.

Saraki, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicly, Yusuph Olaniyonu, in Abuja, commiserated with Governor Udom Emmanuel, who narrowly escaped the incident, the Christian community and all those who were directly affected.

While praying for speedy recovery for those still receiving medical attention in hospitals, he called for “urgent and thorough investigation to determine both the remote and immediate cause of the building collapse.”

The Senate President said, “It is so sad that this incident claimed precious lives of innocent worshippers and injured scores of others. This was certainly an avoidable occurrence, the more reason relevant state and federal authorities should urgently launch an investigation to unravel the mechanical, environmental and human factors responsible for the incident.

“I believe such investigation, if sincerely done, will help us to guide against this unnecessary waste of lives, injuries and damage to property in the future. My heart goes out to all the victims, the Christian Community in Akwa Ibom State and the entire people of the state.”
