The Governor of Benue State, Fr Hayicnth Alia, has slammed the leadership of the Dunamis International gospel centre for erecting a substandard structure.
News Direct reports that the church caved in the early hours of Tuesday, killing the resident pastor, Ahmed Sunday and injuring others.
Speaking when he visited the site, the Governor expressed disappointment that he did not meet any of the leaders of the church on ground.
He said the building was poorly constructed and would be revoked.
He said the leader of the church should know the law.
“We have to locate where the leadership of the church is and to inform them that the land has been revoked because we have to save lives.
“Those living along the waterways would vacate immediately.
“So the Ministry of Works, Housing and Urban Development should step in.
“I need to know who approved this structure. We need to know the engineers or the architects who monitored this gigantic project.
“We need to stop these from happening.”
Dunamis Church is under the leadership of Dr Paul Enenche.
