The founder of Reigners Bible Church, Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State, Apostle Akan Weeks, has broken a long silence, by calling on his members not to crucify him for the collapsed building, which trapped scores to death.
Weeks reminded them that he was still their brother and pastor.
NaijaNews.com recalls that the consecration service of Akan Weeks as Bishop was in progress when the building caved in and killed over 200 worshipers.
Speaking to Planet FM radio from his hospital bed, the cleric said he was also seriously injured but that as soon as he was out of the hospital, he would pray with Nigerians.
“Please, this is not the time to crucify me; I’m still your brother, Reigners Church family, I’m still your pastor. The enthronement was cancelled completely and I am not interested.
“Please let us rise and pray. I really sympathise with the departed soul. Once I’m out of my hospital bed, I will come on air and we will pray together.”
