Thirty one persons were killed in Imo State when a tree fell on them. The incident happened at the Ukwu Uko evening market at Umuejinwaoke Umudagu Village, Mbieri, Mbaitolu Local Government Area of Imo.

About 16 others sustained various injuries during the incident, which was caused by rainstorm on Thursday night.

A resident of the community, Nnaemeka Emenyonu, said that the tree fell on the affected persons around 8:00 p.m. He said the tree also destroyed the Village Hall.

“The big tree fell suddenly on 31 people, who died at the spot and injured 16 others. Those injured were taken to hospital.

“The victims include two sisters, who sell tomatoes. Honestly, this is a saddest event in the history of our community,” he said.

The traditional ruler of the community, Godwin Duru, lamented that such a tragic incident had never occurred in the community.

“I do not know what to say. God, what can we call this? My people were destroyed within a twinkle of an eye. What a pity,” he said.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Joy Elemoko, declined comment on the incident after several efforts to get the command’s reaction to the issue.

WHAT'S THE MYSTERY BEHIND THE TREE? ONE THING WITH OUR SOCIETY IS THAT, WE ALWAYS ATTACHED SUPERSTITIOUS IMPORTANCE TO SUCH ISSUES, AND WE ONLY WANT TO LOOK WITHIN REALITY INSTEAD OF BEYOND REALITY. UNDER NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES A TREE CAN FALL IF OUT LIVED ITS LIFE SPAN, EVEN AN ANIMAL WILL DIE IF ITS LIFE SPAN EXPIRED. THE VERY BEST THAT CAN HAPPEN TO ANY HUMAN BEING OR ANY GROUP OF PEOPLE IS TO RUN INTO CHRIST JESUS AND BE SAFE TO BE ABLE TO FACE THE REALITIES OF LIFE. MAY THE SOULS OF ALL THOSE KILLED IN THE INCIDENT REST IS PERFECT PEACE, AMEN.

Recently, Imo state has been in the news. Ranging from ritual, murder, baby manufacturing factory, e.t.c. Gov. Rochas Okorocha should do a spiritual cleansing and reconcile the people of imo state with God. EG: invite 92 babalawos, 64 witches and wizards from U.S.A, BRAZIL, INDIA, PUETORICO, CHINA, JAPAN, INDONESIA, SOUTH AFRICA, MALI, GHANA & COTONU. Make sure you also invite ordained men of God to do their own work. If you invite any FAKE Bishiop, those foreign witches and wizards will use them for Perper soup.

There is nothing mysterious about a tree falling down; even here in USA, various kinds of hurricane keep pulling trees & other structures down & in the process, people get killed, injured, maimed etc. rip to the dead Cry Cry

A tree falls down after a heavy rainstorm and it described as mysterious!

Every death in Nigeria is "mysterious."  And I understand that side of Nigeria - Mbieri are Christians.

I think traditional religious beliefs play a huge part in everyday Nigeria lives.

Well it's either that or Nigerians really have to change their thought processes?
