UYO, Nigeria - At least 100 people were killed by the collapse of a church in southeastern Nigeria, a resident and photojournalist who visited the town morgue said on Sunday, a day after the incident.
"At Uyo teaching hospital where I am now I could see over a hundred corpses, many are heaped on top off each other on the floor," said photojournalist Ini Samuel. "Eye witnesses also said yesterday corpses were packed in four each bag."
Gary Ubong, a resident, said the church's roof had collapsed on worshipers while a pastor was being consecrated as bishop in the presence of government officials.
