Number of death has risen to 21, following the collapse of a three-story church building in eastern Ghana, rescue officials said on Friday, as more bodies were pulled from the rubble.
“The deceased include 12 women and nine men,” the National Disaster Management Organisation said in a statement, up the toll from 17 dead on Thursday.
It said eight people had been rescued alive at the scene since rescue workers began combing the disaster site.
The Church of Prosperity collapsed Tuesday in the town of Akyem Batabi just after worshippers had concluded a prayer meeting.
One survivor told local media that some 60 people were inside the building when it came down.
The causes of the accident were still unknown but the church’s founder, Prophet Isaac Ofori, popularly known as Akoa Isaac, was assisting police with its investigation.
