No less than two persons have died when a worship centre which is known as Holy Ghost Church collapsed situated in the southern part of Taraba State.

Brand News Day reports that the Holy Ghost Church was reported to have been affected by a heavy downpour that lasted for several hours.

The collapsed church is located in Abed Pave community in Chachanji town of Takum Local Government, while church service was ongoing.

This, as further observed by our correspondent, came barely one week after the local government council was submerged by flood, which kept travellers stranded for several hours.

In addition to the two persons confirmed to have died as a result of the accident, several worshippers were also said to have escaped the scene with serious injuries.

Confirming the report to our correspondent, the council chairman, Shiban Tikari, said from the report made available to him, no fewer than two persons lost their lives in the process.

Though agreed that he is yet to visit the scene, he is, however, optimistic that the council would work out modalities to assist the church in question.

Also reacting, a former Supervisory Councilor of Chachanji ward, Mathew Adega, who also confirmed the incident to our correspondent, said the two victims are male and female.

Adega, who could ascertain the numbers of persons that sustained injuries at the time of confirming the incident, however, agreed that several church members left with one form of injury and the other.

Some members of the community told our correspondent that the church building suddenly came down when it was raining cats and dogs in the community.
