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”.
