Update on T.B Joshua's synagogue church building collapse

Prophet T.B Joshua will on November 5 appear before the Lagos State coroner investigating the circumstances that led to the collapse of a guest house in his Synagogue Church of All Nations.

Joshua is expected to appear along with the contractor in charge of the collapsed five-storey building, which claimed no fewer than 115 lives.

The coroner, Magistrate O.A. Komolafe, during the sitting of the court on Friday (today), stated that the appearance of the church's founder was important to the findings of the court.

Though, counsel for the church, Mr. Jude Nnadi (SAN), argued that the appearance of the prophet would not be necessary, "as he was not an eyewitness," Komolafe insisted that Joshua would have to appear.

"We have heard that he has been addressing the press at various times. Let him come and address the court. The court has summoned him; let him come and tell us what he knows. He cannot sit over there and be sending words to us that he cannot come. The court has said that for the purpose of what we're doing that he should come over." the coroner said.
