Sept 13, 2014 – Pictures: 50 People Killed as TB Joshua’s Synagogue Guest House Building Collapsed, Church Members Attacked Journalists To Coverup Evidence

Yesterday a building housing guests at TB Joshua’s church in Ikotun area of Lagos collapsed, trapping many people inside.

Eyewitnesses who saw the whole mystery said over 50 dead bodies were counted even as the church said nobody died in the disaster.

An eyewitness, who insisted that up to 50 persons died in the incident, said he saw almost 10 ambulances loaded with bodies going to and fro, taking victims to nearby hospitals.

He said, “I’m very sure that nothing less than 50 people were killed in the incident as ambulances loaded with bodies were going to and fro. The collapse was massive and the casualty figure was high.”

The building that collapsed was initially a 2-storey building and was later made a 6-storey building, a source said the change in the structure is what led to the collapse of the building that served as guest house for church members and foreign miracle seekers.

When the news first broke, people were able to gain access to the building but when the casualty figures jumped, TB Joshua was said to have ordered his church members to chase out all journalists and prevent further access into the building.

The overzealous church workers reportedly attacked emergency rescuers mistaken for journalists.

An official of LASEMA said, “The church members have been very aggressive and hostile to us; they attacked us and we had to withdraw our services. I was attacked, the officials of the Lagos State Building Control Agency and the General Manager of LASEMA were also attacked. We were not hurt and our equipment was not damaged. This was, however, because we quickly left when they attacked us. We are still waiting to settle before we resume our job.”

As at 7pm last night, 20 ambulances evacuated dead bodies to the mortuary and moved the gravely injured victims to the hospital

A recharge card seller, who claimed she saw when the building collapsed, said she counted nothing less than 20 dead people.

“It was so gory. Most of them were construction workers. I saw so many bodies being evacuated. I am sure not less than 20 people have died so far,” she claimed.

    How come he failed to prophecizing over this tragedy, or may he knew he just wanted to suck blood. He keeps on pridicting what will happen in other countries what about his own. Honestly I don’t believe this man.

    You place a 6-storey building on a foundation originally meant for a 2-storey building??? What do we call that?… God is a God of order and not a magician. May their soul rest in peace and I pray for a quick recovery for those injured.

    Hhummmmm! Mysterious death. Don’t underestimate human wickedness or iniquitous but only God is in the best position to judge. I think this man knows better trying to upgrade two story building to six story. I don’t know the type of building Engineer who approved that. In a develop Countries, the Geotechnical Engineer will have to do a sub surface exploration to determine if that soil in that area will be able to support the structure. In that case the geotechnical firm is liable and another cause is the type of aggregate cementious material they use during the construction. I don’t want to go into detail but better investigation will unravel the mystery of this incidence which I doubt if Nigeria or any government is interesting in. If there is probable cause, then have to work on that but if there is no genuine cause, we shall all assume that those involve in this tragedy were purposely given as sacrifice.

    it is time for national assembly to pass it to the law, that any building that collapsed without natural disaster. the engineer should be arrested and thrown into life jail, because engineer should stand as an adviser to the house owners, we can keep loosing life everyday for the negligent of the engineers and the land owner trying to build 50 building story on a half of plot .. bull shit
