Church collapse: Names of victims yet to be released

18 September 2014, 13:16

Lagos - The Synagogue Church of All Nations, (SCOAN) is yet to make public the names of the victims of the collapse of a six-storey building structure inside the church premises six days after the incident, Vanguard reports.

The building believed to be housing hundreds of local and foreign visitors to the church, collapsed on Friday killing over 60 persons with scores injured.

TB Joshua claims is coincidental coming with the sudden disappearance of a military fighter jet used to fighting the Boko Haram sect.

Meanwhile, Maj.-Gen. Chris Olukolade, Director of Defence Information, said at the same time the building collapse an Air Force jet, marked NAF 466, disappeared from the radar.

Olukolade explained that the plane with only two crew members on board “left Yola at about 10:45am on September12, 2014 on a routine operational mission and was expected back by 12 noon same day. Since then, all efforts to establish contact with the aircraft have not yielded any positive result.”

Neither the army spokesperson nor the aviation authority has however said anything about citing any strange or unidentified plane within the Lagos airspace.
