6 YEARS ON… When Will The SCOAN’ Victims Of Collapsed Building Gets Justice?
When I left the Synagogue, ‘church’ of all nations in the morning of Friday, 8th February, 2008, the gates of going to crusades in different countries were shut on TB Joshua until 6 years afterwards in 2014, the year of huge human sacrifice in the Synagogue, when TB Joshua collapsed one of his building on innocent people. If the victims had known that the journey they planned to embark on would become a journey of no return… only if they had known. They would have adhere to Jesus’ Message in John 4:21-24.
Our Prayers and thoughts are still with the families of the victims.
It was exactly 3 month after Abdul-Fatai Balogun alias TB Joshua celebrated his infamous birthday on 12th, June, 2014, 6years ago today that over 115 vulnerable, gullible and naïve people from different nations headed to the Synagogue �?church’ of all nations, Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos, Nigeria in desperation for miracles. In need for succour, healing and encounter with God, but ended dying violently when a building suddenly collapsed completely to the ground on top of them.
Countless died painful death, others got life changing injuries, many can never use their legs to walk again after the gruesome experience and many can never use their arms to embrace their loved ones.
Though that incident was not new in the demonic Synagogue of TB Joshua, every insider in the Synagogue know how occasional incident like this occurs to take lives of people in gruesome manner, but that of 12th, September, 2014 could not be covered up like many others, and it has entered into the record of Wikipedia for generations unborn to read and be wiser. Never in the history of the Church of the living God has the children of God suffered such terror and calamities in the hands of a fraudster, and a satanic agent like T.B. Joshua, this is calling for returning to the Lord as the scripture says in Zechariah 1:3.
Many breadwinners are gone unprepared, leaving their protégés at the mercy of life, God is faithful always.
Intelligent Nigerians knows how T.B. Joshua has become embarrassment to Nigeria as a country and to Nigerians. What more could prove this charlatan, con-artist is a dangerous false prophet than him not been able to see the collapse of his own building which killed over 116 gullible foreigners, and uncountable unaccounted-for Nigerians. But he is very quick to put out his over-edited videos and Photoshop pictures, purporting to have predicted many disasters happening around the world to make himself look relevant, but right in his own compound, under his watch, he could not predict those that add up to the number of people that perished in his own house. T.B. Joshua is a psychopath with zero empathy for the victims of tragedies as he releases fulfillment of false videos to corroborate lies.
Now, read this: This is neither allegation, nor speculation; I will speak and write as one who once lived inside the Synagogue for over a decade, and work in various departments in leadership capacity and closely to the direct source, I know some deeper truth about T.B. Joshua and the Synagogue. There are two major reasons pointing to the collapse of the Synagogue, I cannot be wrong in both ways, the first assertion is final:
T.B. Joshua used the people that died for spiritual lifting sacrifice as a stepping stone to gain more power in satanic realm. TB Joshua has been doing it for many years, we have witnessed how people mysteriously die inside the Synagogue, workers die inside the Synagogue, members suddenly collapse and died, I have coordinated foreign visitors that died inside the Synagogue, we witnessed many �?disciples’ of T.B. Joshua that died inside the �?disciples’ quarters inside the Synagogue, and their bodies were smuggled out to be buried secretly, but this particular one of 12th September 2014 was too huge for cover-up, T.B. Joshua couldn’t hide it. The sacrifice was one of the reason immediately the house collapsed, TB Joshua needed certain number of deaths, so the Synagogue quickly closed its gate on the good Samaritans that volunteered to help the victims to get number of deaths; and until it became undeniable and un-coverable, if not, the Synagogue ground would have been their graveyard. T.B. Joshua would have buried them all inside his shrine with corporation of his spiritual moron �?disciples’ and members that are under his spell. In usual manner, TB Joshua would let the �?disciples’ believe it is �?God’s’ work they are protecting.
Since I left the Synagogue in 2008, (for over 6years) to 2014, T.B. Joshua was not able to travel outside the shores of Nigeria to perform his usual scam crusades; but in the year 2014 before the collapse and shortly after the collapse, gateway was open for T.B. Joshua through the huge human sacrificing both locals and foreigners souls in one swing, and he went over to South Korea, Mexico, Paraguay, UK, Israel, Panama etc to display falsehood. Never in the history of the Church of the living God has the children of God suffered such terror and calamities in the hands of a fraudster, and a satanic agent like T.B. Joshua, this is calling for returning to the Lord on the part of genuine believer and followers of Christ Jesus as the scripture says in Zechariah 1:3. The more reason why people should know their Creator personally and serve Him devotedly wherever they may be, rather than running helter skelter to prayer arrangers, especially places like the Synagogue �?church’. The Synagogue is not a Church of Jesus Christ, T.B. Joshua is not a Christian, and I am warning everyone in the Synagogue to be at alert because you can never tell when T.B. Joshua’s demons intend to strike to unleash mayhem on the innocent people in the compound of the Synagogue. TB Joshua buried many demonic things and swords all around the Synagogue, which also is in the logo of the Synagogue.
To further confirmed what I enumerated above, Brother Nkechi, one of TB Joshua’ �?disciples’ said he was called into T.B. Joshua’ office to conduct some strange looking men round that particular collapsed building site, and he noticed how they walk round the building three times before they left, and the unimaginable happened a week after their visit. He said they return after the collapsed and did the same walking round at the same spot where the building collapsed.
One certain time, the Synagogue was expecting large number of visitors from South Africa, and few days later, unexpectedly, one Mr. Adebayo, a prophet from Japan call into the Synagogue to inform us that he would be leading 100 Japanese religious tourists to the Synagogue. Faced with problem of accommodation space; greedy T.B. Joshua does not want the expected visitors to stay in hotels outside of the Synagogue because he does not want to lose the money the Japanese visitors come with. So, T.B. Joshua instructed that they should put unplanned new layer of floor on top of a building within a short period of 2 weeks that will accommodate the expected guest. Masons/workers work day and night including their supervisors (�?disciples’); and building process was not duly followed. The very day the visitors arrived, while they and their luggage were delay at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos; wet plastered walls were being hurriedly painted in the Synagogue; and plumbers also were busy still fixing water faucets, and other convenient fittings. Everywhere smell fresh paint, putting the visitors and their coordinators at risk. This is the story of a greedy man called T.B. Joshua.
It is not surprising in July 2015, when the coroner released its report on the Synagogue’s collapsed building – proving that the collapse was inevitable due to a litany of serious structural failings, for example:
- Inadequate beams of 750mm by 225mm, which should have been 900mm by 300mm.
- Inadequately reinforced columns, which should have been reinforced with 12 x Y25 bars or 20 x Y20 bars, instead of 10 x Y20 bars as seen in the video released by SCOAN.
- Inadequate bearing pressure for the central column due to the 2m x 2m x 0.9m foundations.
- Failure to introduce rigid zones for bracing the structure and did not design the frames as an embraced structure
- Failure to provide movement joints that could have absorbed any movement due to creep, contraction and expansion, and differential settlement, etcetera.
- 8 out 12 main beams of the structure failed because they were undersized, under-reinforced both in tension and shear, the tension bars were poorly anchored to the column supports and 8 x Y20 was used instead of 14 x Y20.
- The ground floor columns were slender and readily gave in to buckling.
The coroner, Oyetade Komolafe ruled that SCOAN was criminally negligent, and should be investigated and prosecuted, “SCOAN was culpable because of criminal negligence resulting in the death of the victims.” (Source: BBC). This is on the net for everyone to see.

They protest with placards on October 24, 2014 outside the Ikeja High Court in Lagos during a hearing into the cause of the September 12 collapse at a guesthouse of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), which killed 115 people, including 84 South Africans. A coroner on October 24 ordered one of Nigeria’s most popular preachers to give evidence at the inquest. TB Joshua’s lawyer, Jude Nnadi, had argued at the hearing that his client would not be able to come in person “because he was not an eye-witness” to the tragedy. But coroner Oyetade Komolafe overruled him and summoned the popular televangelist, known to his followers as “The Prophet”, to appear on November 5 because his evidence was crucial.

- “failure to obtain building approval contrary to Section 75 of the Urban and Regional Planning Law of Lagos State 2010.
- Involuntary manslaughter causing death contrary to Section 222 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011.”
In June 2016, the trial started, and T.B. Joshua criminally went behind to hire/rent some miscreants, scrupulous entities from Nollywood ranks and other places as agents to bring the government to its kneel, and to seduce the judiciary. People were seen in court premises carrying various placards with intention to intimidates the government through the inscriptions they bare, shouting war songs and with innuendo remarks, a repented insider amongst them later informed me that every person present in court was rewarded 200,000 naira each ($600) of blood money from T.B. Joshua; and the Synagogue provided transportation that conveyed them to and fro; only God knows the amount of money he pass through to the people on the bench because after couple of days all the shenanigans of the judiciary went silent without conclusion. SCOAN have not been cleared of the charges – where is the justice for the many families who lost their loved ones, bread winners, head of families, or those whose lives will never remain the same again due to their horrific injuries? We believe Lagos State Government can do better than what they are doing presently. We need to keep the families of the departed in our prayers to be strong, and continue to use this sad occurrence as warning to others who are in habits of looking for spiritual arrangers and false prophets. Stay in your homes and cry out to God, He promised to answer you whenever you call on Him JEREMIAH 33:3. The same God of the mountain is still God in the valley, He is the God everywhere; don’t act in unbelief by travelling up and down.
Our prayers are with the families of the departed
