T.B Joshua releases new CCTV footage of building collapse; insists incident an attack on Synagogue

Pastor T.B. Joshua

Despite failing to comply with building regulations and mounting four floors on a foundation that was originally meant to hold two storeys, T.B Joshua, the founder of the Synagoue Church of all Nations that housed a building that collapsed and killed at least 115 people, insists the incident was an attack.

Mr. Joshua released new security footage of the incident through Emmanuel TV’s official YouTube channel.

The new footage from a security camera stationed in the church premises shows the bottom of the building as people walk innocently around the environment.

Suddenly, the building collapses in mere seconds and bystanders scampered to safety.

A still picture at the end of the footage shows the extent of the disaster with ‘floors piled on top of each other’.

Through a Facebook post, the embattled Christian preacher insisted that while co-operating with the ongoing investigation into the cause of the fatal collapse, “The church views this tragedy as part of an attack on The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations.”

Mr. Joshua, who was heard in a audio recording doling out money to journalists “for fuel” and subsequently asking them what they would report, warned the media to stop giving “the impression the collapse was due to structural failure”.

      • Most Nigerian Pastors (including Adeboye) are into Christian-Occultism not only TBJ

        I encourage you to read my article “Beware of Christian Occultism”.

        The time is coming when deceitful Pastors will actually be doing real supernatural things (not fake).

        The Scriptures already forewarned, so that anyone who truly wants the true-Christ must stay-away from
        Preachers WHOSE TEACHINGS ARE NOT EXACTLY SCRIPTURAL, no matter what real signs
        and wonders they perform. For example, read the following online right now:
        2Thessalonians 2:9-12, Matthew 24:24-26, Deuteronomy 13:1-11, 1John 4:1

        Isaiah 8:20 “… If they do not speak according to this Word, it is because there’s no light in them.”

    I doubt the veracity of the second video mainly because the time of events displayed on both video angles are in accurate. In yhe first video, which was released earlier, the building came down around 12.45 pm but, surprisingly in the new video, the building collapsed around 1.30pm. This is really baffling, because the building only came down once.

    On the other hand, if somone watches the video carefully, you will notice that the supposed aircraft was no where directly on the building. The building has a close proximity with the cctv camera in the first video. The building appears closer than the aircraft, if the building could be seen as clearly as that, then the aircraft, with such wide jet wings should be seen more clearly. At least we should be able to tell the colour, the shape and probably the type of aircraft it is.

    Apart from all these, according to the footage, the mysterious aircraft only made sorties from the left to the right , 2 or 3 times in an average of 8 minutes between every sortie. Can’t really delve too much on this because I’m not an aviation expert. But I expect our security and agencies to have come forward to put a stop to this rumours. Lack of official information from the government has allowed the synagogue church to intesify their theory of the mysterious aircraft.

    My country Nigeria never ceases to amaze me. I expect a criminal investigation to have begun.

      i observed that already my brother,the first video showed that the building collapsed @ 12:44 pm, while in the second video, it showed @ 1:30 pm. it baffles me as well or did the building collapse twice? My stake in this is that there is a result of structural defect, and i don’t wish to blame the prophet for that but the team of engineers doing the work should be queried and proper things be done. even the said aircraft passed last by 11:54 am while the building collapsed @ 12:44 am in the first video which is almost an hour later,so i wonder where the basis of the aircraft and the collapsed building theory stands. I don’t even know possible it is for such a big aircraft like they made us to understand will turn and return for four good times within that space of few minutes they narrated in the footage. The cctv footage of the second video would have been so perfect to showcase the said aircraft that passed but nothing like was shown or mentioned i really don’t understand what is happening in this country. The government is not saying anything, everybody is just keeping quit and keeps telling us on-going investigation which we all knew will not be fruitful. For me,this is just a simple cause of structural defect and i think trying to cover up the matter with theory of a hovering aircraft is not right.

      @king carlos, we have a big problem in this country. I am a Ph.D. student of Mathematics. My area of interest is Solid Mechanics. I have good knowledge of what structure is all about. If you believe in the first video then I can make some assertions. If any building collapse due to structural defect, then it will never collapse on its weight. The only case that was similar to this one was a celebrated one. It was when Lagos State Govt. hired a South African firm to collapse the BOI building in Lagos that got burnt during OBJ era. Oba of Lagos, Tinubu, Fashola etc all witnessed it. Explosives were used and the building collapse on it’s weight I.e it did not collapse sideways. It did not affect any building beside it. We were all happy then because it shows that Science is at work. Again if building collapses due to structural defect, it will never collapse in that manner, not a complete collapse from top to bottom. Also, if any building is to collapse, there will be some sort of vibrations that building would have experience over time before some part will crumble and not this total and complete collapse.

        I have some quick questions for you. Was it the sound of the aircraft that caused the collapse and can you explain how the state of the rubbles would be if this is proven.

    • Richard

      I agree with you absolutely in your observation and analysis except for the time displayed on the two CCTV footages. The time in the CCTV works just like the time on clock, wrist watch , computer or cell phone. There could be differences if the time is not adjusted over a period of time. I believe this timing has nothing to do with the collapse of the building . The two questions that need to be answered are : was there a structural adjustment to the original plan of the building from two storied building to five storied building . Also was there an approval for the adjustment . The appropriate authority should do its job.

        correct

  • Abiodun

    In as much as I am not against the man of God neither am siding any group or person, but let us for once in this country say the truth and stop fooling ourselves, making mockery of our collective intelligence as the whole world is watching, I have watched the new released video and the old one over and over again, the first video showed that the building collapsed @ 12:44 pm, while in the second video, it showed the collapse @ 1:30 pm. it baffles my imagination or did the building collapse twice? My stake in this is that this is simple as a result of structural defect, and i don’t wish to blame the prophet for that but the team of engineers doing the work should be queried and proper things done in effect. even the said aircraft passed last by 11:54 am while the building collapsed @ 12:44 am in the first video which is almost an hour later,so i wonder where the basis of the aircraft and the collapsed building theory stands. I don’t even know how possible it is for such a big aircraft like they made us to understand will turn and return for four good times within that space of few minutes they narrated in the footage.

For me,this is just a simple cause of structural defect and i think trying to cover up the matter with theory of a hovering aircraft is not right, we are talking of people’s life here, some of the people that died might be the bread winners of their household and that household today has been placed in disarray,it is slap to the face of the victims of the collapse and their families trying to cover this casualty with unfounded theory.

      did the building collapse twice? my dear, obviously it did!

      I AM NOT SUPPRISED BECAUSE JESUS HIMSELF WAS HATED AND ARRESTED,EVEN THE PROPHETS OF OLD.Touch not my anointed and do my Prophet no harm.I know all of you are jealous of the anointing in TB Joshua,but I am so sorry for whoever will arrest him or tempt or support to arrest him because that wrath and punishment of Jesus will be upon such person/s and his/their generations to come and sword will never depart from their homes according to the scripture.

      • Neke

        you are so blind. Do you even read the bible at all? If you do, then you do not understand it. “Touch not thy anointed” does not mean that when the anointed commits adultery, commits crime, lie to people and take their money, Kill people due to negligence , that he/she is immune to scrutiny. This bible phrase has done so much damage to Nigerian christians.

  • unmovable

    Hey if Nigeria don’t want TB Joshua, America will gladly take him!

  • Chuks

    The missing air force jet has it being seen?

  • Pastor P

    There are quite a few demons contributing the comments in this blog. Everyone against Prophet T B Joshua has at least one demon making them wish Prophet T B Joshua will be wiped out by this crisis. You are the ones who will be wiped out. In Lagos there is nothing else worthwhile other than SCOAN and you hear Nigerians saying negative things about T B Joshua. Nigerians have looted their country dry and lights go off every 5 minutes on purpose so corrupt folks can sell generators. Those are the ones you all can go arrest! Not T B Joshua whose ministry feeds the poor and patches loopholes. For those of asking why at least one dead should be raised from the dead, wait until you die shortly and you’ll ask that question more critically

  • Pastor P

    Abiodun, You know NOTHING about CCTV. By the grace of God we have a CCTV system at our business and the time stamp can be different just like you can have several clocks in the house, bathroom, microwave, oven etc with different time settings. I set some of our clocks ahead on purpose to help us avoid getting late but CCTV time settings being different is not a biggie. Again you don’t project a CCTV camera to the skies unless you are a military establishment. CCTV cameras cover critical human entry and exit points not skies. Look at the content not the time stamp on the camera. As for American courts throwing out such evidence, that is neither here nor there; it is just American corruption which many African folks don’t know exists….American’s like using technicalities to sideline the truth. Back to the point, the second CCTV footage indicates an explosive blowing the base out making the building to cave in. One of the South Africans said he had something like shattering glass (explosion, oh). If you watched Prophet T B Joshua today, he said that is you are not convinced yet they have more evidence, oh you doubting Thomases. He said you all shut your mouths lest you die with the perpetrators of the attack. Be careful oh
