Church recounts losses as first rain storm destroys buildings in Akwa Ibom

The Ikot Ukpong Assembly of the Apostolic Church, Nigeria, at Ikot Ekpene Field Office, Akwa Ibom State, was on Wednesday damaged by the first rain in the state.

Ukeme Umanah, an elder in the church, who spoke to the media on Friday, said the rains which started about 2pm destroyed everything in the church including the glass pulpit, three long tables, rails and the roof, lamenting that it was a huge loss to the church.

He said, “There was a rain storm here on Wednesday around 2pm and our church was pulled down, the entire roof was pulled down, the glass pulpit, the plastic chairs and three long benches were destroyed.”

Also, another member of the church Mr. Nnamdie Akpakpan, disclosed that musical instruments were damaged beyond repairs, adding that about five buildings in the community were also destroyed.

He therefore called on the state government and the district office of the Apostolic Church to come to the aid of the local church to renovate the building.
