Barring any unforeseen circumstance, Prophet TB Joshua founder and General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN will on Monday 13 October appear before a judicial panel, set up by the Lagos State government to look into circumstances surrounding the collapse of a six-storey building, that killed over 115 people, 86 of them South African tourists in his church located in Ikotun, Lagos State.
The panel is expected to start sitting on Monday at the Lagos State High court, Ikeja, Lagos State.
It was gathered that all the parties involved have been summoned to appear before the panel when it begins sitting.
The Lagos State government is alleging that the cause of the collapse is on the building agents, who did not get approval to erect the structure.
Lagos State also hinged the cause of the collapse to structural deficit as the building was originally a two-storey building.
While responding to an allegation made by the Lagos State government that the collapse building was originally a two-storey building, Joshua’s church stated that building was approved for a 12-storey building and that the building was strong enough.
TB Joshua shortly after the building collapse made several claims that the building was demolished with explosives. He also blamed an aircraft that hovered over the building four times as a possible cause for the collapse.
It was on the strength of the controversy that the state government set up the panel to actually find out the cause of the collapse.
