SA families take aim at Nigerian church
JOHANNESBURG – South African families of victims who died when Prophet TB Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations building collapsed in Lagos in 2014 are still seeking justice.
They are launching a lawsuit against the church, its trustees and two construction companies for damages.
A total of 116 people died, including 85 South Africans when the six-storey building crumbled.
Despite many fingers pointing at poor workmanship as the cause of the church’s collapse, the late TB Joshua maintained an aircraft flying too low over the building triggered the building’s fall.
The families have now enlisted the help of a Nigerian law firm after the matter encountered numerous delays over the past few years. Source – eNCA
