Five worshipers were killed on Saturday following the collapse of St. Anthony Catholic Church Cathedral in Oduma, Aninri Local Government Area of Enugu State.

It was gathered that the incident occurred between 8pm and 9pm following a downpour, adding that the worshipers were in a prayer meeting when the tragic incident occurred.

Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ebere Amarizu, confirmed the incident and said cause of the incident was not yet known.

“Yes, I can confirm that five persons died following the collapse of St. Anthony Catholic Church about 8pm, but we are yet to know the cause.

“It is not yet clear what brought about the collapse of the building, but we have commenced investigation into the matter,” Amarizu said.
