Synagogue Church to honour victims of its collapsed building

The founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nation, Temitope Joshua, said the Church would hold a memorial service for victims of the September 2014 collapsed building that occurred in the Church.

In a statement issued by the Church on Saturday in Lagos, Mr. Joshua said the memorial service would hold in Lagos and South Africa.

One hundred and sixteen persons, including 84 South Africans, were killed when the six-storey building belonging to the Church collapsed on September 12, 2014.

The statement stated that some delegates from the church in Nigeria would attend the memorial service in South Africa.

The statement quoted Mr. Joshua as saying “the deceased, mostly South Africans, were on an appointment with God when they met their death and therefore they did not die in vain’’.

Mr. Joshua recalled that the coroner had passed its verdict calling for the prosecution of the contractors that handled the building of the collapsed structure.

He, however, urged government to focus more on what led to the tragedy adding that the building collapsed questioned the security consciousness of the government.
