SHOCKING details of how TB Joshua’s people prevented fire fighters from entering collapsed building site by yungcrae(: 6:36 pm On Nov 11, 2016
The members of the Synagogue Church of All Nations have been accused of contributing to the heavy casualty recorded at the scene of the collapsed church building in 2014.
Giving his testimony before the Lagos High Court in Ikeja, a prosecution witness Musiliu Adebayo said church members prevented fire fighters from entering the site.Adebayo, a retired operational firefighting officer with the Lagos state fire service told the court that four days after the incident, there was still fire at the scene.
Ruling out arson, Adebayo said he took part in the search and rescue operation that recovered over 116 bodies.
Led in evidence by the prosecuting counsel Idowu Alakija, the witness said: “On the fourth day at about 0855 hours on Monday the 15th, there was a fire incident within the rubble in the premises and we were able to put it out.”
Adebayo also said, the fire was caused by triangle of combustion.
“That is, there must be three things that can cause fire incident, such as fuel, oxygen and heat,” Adebayo said.
He also said while putting out the fire, his team found clothing that could fuel fire incident, trapped cooking gas cylinders which might have leaked and passed to the rubble.
He also said that there were naked irons there too and he argued that if two irons rub each other, “it could produce heat if not fire.”
The registered trustees of SCOAN, two engineers Oladele Ogundeji and Akinbela Fatiregun, their companies, Hardrock Construction and Engineering Company and Jandy Trust Limited are being prosecuted by the Lagos state government on a 111-count charges bordering criminal negligence, man slaughter and failure to obtain building permit.
