The roof of a crowded church has broke down on to admirers in southern Nigeria, murdering 160 individuals, a healing center executive said.

Structures crumple frequently in Nigeria as a result of endemic debasement with contractual workers utilizing sub-standard materials and paying off auditors to overlook terrible work or an absence of building licenses.
