Akwa Ibom State Governor, UDOM EMMANUEL, has ordered the immediate arrest of the contractors and engineers that constructed the Reigners Bible Church International Uyo, which collapsed on Saturday, killing scores of people.
An aide to governor UDOM, ANIEKEME FINBARR, who spoke with CNN said the governor gave the order on Sunday.
According to FINBARR, governor UDOM EMMANUEL said the contractors and engineers should be made to answer certain questions so that the state would be able to get to the root cause of the matter.
Also speaking, another aide to the governor, ESSIEN NDUESE revealed that governor EMMANUEL narrowly escaped from the disaster after an iron bar fell and shattered the seat he was sitting on shortly after he stood up.
ESSIEN debunked insinuations that another of the governor’s aides was killed in the disaster saying two of the governor’s aides were injured and now in hospital.
