Nollywood actress has opened up on how she escaped the callapse of the Reigners Bible Church building in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state on Saturday.
Recall that the said building reportedly collapsed during the consecration of its pastor, Akan Week as a Bishop, leading to the death of over 200 people and many others injured.
According to report, the state governor, Emmanuel Udom was billed to be in the auditorium when the tragedy occurred, but he arrived late and instead joined in the rescue of victims.
Reacting to the development, Ini Edo said she could have been among the victims, but was held in traffic from Calabar to Uyo for 7 hours, on her way to the church.
The actress on her social media accounts: “2 days ago, I was very bitter about the unreliable nature of some of our airlines cancelling flights without prior notice thereby hindering my plans to attend a church service ceremony held in uyo. Now out of determination, I took a flight to calabar with the hope of being in uyo just in time for the service since the journey between calabar and uyo was just about an hour.
“The journey ended up taking over 7hrs because of an unexplainable traffic. No accident, good road no hitches just a headlock traffic. Whilst in the car, I started wondering why all my efforts to be at the service was being thwarted… then I got a call, that the entire church building had collapsed during the course of the service …. Once again, God had saved me.
“My heart goes out to the families of the departed..may the good Lord grant them the heart to bear the loss.
“Everyday we see is a blessing..it’s not because we are special or better..It’s the exceeding Grace of our Lord Jesus.Iam so humbled and grateful to God for preserving me… Happy thanksgiving…” She wrote.
