PIC.18. RESCUE OPERATION AT THE  COLLAPSED BUILDING AT SYNAGOGUE CHURCH IN LAGOS

Lagos (NAN) A 45-year-old-woman on Tuesday walked out alive from the rubble of the collapsed building at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Ikotun, Lagos, a rescue worker has said.

The building collapsed on Friday.

Ibrahim Farinloye, the Public Relations Officer of the National Emergency Management Agency, South-West Zone, told journalists in Lagos that the woman walked out on her own at 2 a.m.

Farinloye did not give the identity of the woman.

He said that death toll from the building collapse had increased to 59.

As at Monday, the death toll was 49.

Farinloye said that 131 persons had been rescued alive.

“A woman of about 45 years old walked out of the rubbles on her own around 2 a.m today, while 10 more bodies were recovered, leaving 59 dead and 131 rescued alive,” Farinloye said.

He said that the rescue workers were likely to recover more bodies.

 The emergency responders at the scene of the collapsed building on Tuesday deployed three police sniffer dogs to help to locate trapped victims.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police,  Kayode Aderanti, had on Monday approved the use of the sniffer dogs for the rescue operation.

Vehicles conveying the dogs to the scene reportedly broke down on its way.

Farinloye said that the rescue exercise might be concluded on Tuesday.

 The police and other security agencies are still on ground to ensure safety of lives and property.

The collapsed six-storey building, said to be a guest house for worshipers at the church, collapsed at about 1 p.m.

The Pastor of the church, Temitope Joshua, attributed the collapse to a ‘mystery’ aircraft, which he said, hovered around the building for about 30 minutes before the collapse.

      Man of God we are with you in our prayers, as of all the critiques don’t meditate on them but he who sent you shall respond on your behalf, I’m praying that God can show all who criticise you that he is the one who sent you, I’m just afraid cause this is a special case before the Lord

      Man of God is not a Sangoma, He is a Prophet of God. He only speak the mind of God, otherwise if God did not speak to him there is nothing he can say, only a Sangoma is always having something to say even if its lies. Let’s respect the anointing of God and stop having big mouths to talk nonsences. God knows the reasons why that happened.

      Yes o. It just makes me cringe when NIGERIANS proclaim every suit wearing, sliver coated tongue charlatan MAN OF GOD. as they proclaim corrupt politicians MAN OF THE PEOPLE. what is wrong with people?. Can they not understand that anyone can proclaim to be something or the other they just need a few gullible followers to validate their claims. It is a pity sha!. As for those touch not my anointed philosophers and proclaimers of impending DOOM. it is what you believe that will impound you or set you free, that is the power these charlatans have over the life of their captives.

      so what is yo problem, if yu as an individual don’t need a human being to pray for yu, or lay hands on yu then don’t!! Don’t discourage others not to, becoz they have every reason to be prayed for. For your own information people do not need someone to convince them that Prophet T. B. Joshua is sent by God, they know something which you don’t, which makes believe in the God of T.B.Joshua. So stop bothering yourself about what other believe.

      MAY BE THE DEVIL IS AT WORK CHEATING YOU OR YOU’RE AN AGENT TRYING TO CON PEOPLE. IN THE BIBLE WE READ ABOUT PROPHETS. WHEN THE RICH DIES HE SAW LAZARUS AND ASKED JESUS PLEASE SEND LAZARUS TO MY RELATIVES ON THE EARTH SO THAT THEY MAY NOT BE SUBJECTED THIS TORTURE. JESUS REPLIED “” I HAVE PROPHETS AND APOSTLES IN THE WORLD AND IF THEY DON’T LISTEN TO THEM EVEN IF I SEND A PERSON FROM DEAD THEY WONT LISTEN”” MY FRIEND THINK BEFORE YOU BLASPHEMY THE ANOINTED SERVANT OF GOD. BETTER KEEP SILENCE IF NOT SURE OF WHAT YOU’RE TALKING.

      Dead questions and comments are coming from Religious people!
      1) It was only Elijah who knew his journey as a Prophet.
      2) Job the very good friend of God encountered tests.
      3) We talk of Apostal Paul, he had a thorn on his flesh.
      4) The same Paul was put in prison.
      5) Steven was stoned to death while still wording out the praise to Jesus.
      6) John’s head was cut.
      7) John’s eyes was pluged out bcoz of the same gospel
      Just to mention a few.
      Dont question “Why the prophet did not know”?
      Infact he doesnt know but he’s just told by God.
      He doesnt predict neigher as some of u think. He say what God reveals to him. That is why Isaiah didnt know his day of dying but he was told about Hezekiah hence he was the prophet.
      So plse mind ur mortal thinking!!

    I learnt that one of these men of a god have been implicated in money laundering and arms dealing. Apparently a private aircraft belonging to said pastor pastor was impounded with an excess of 80 million dollars meant for destabilising the government.

    Lord forgive me (as this really is solemn news) but I laughed when I read this: “Vehicles conveying the dogs to the scene reportedly broke down on its way”. The ever-present Nigerian factor…

    Thank God for the woman’s life being spared if she was one of the victims of the building’s collapse. We continue hoping and praying there’ll be other survivors.

    May God give the prophet strength,from what happened,you are going to raise the dead.Even when our Lord Jesus Christ was on the cross,people shouted,”save yourself,you said you are the son of God.”God chooses to reveal or not to reveal to his prophets.Christians why are we attacking one another,in the other kingdom they are united.They kill,kidnap people and children,bombs everywhere,they are doing it for their master,even witches are united against the culprit.
    Pls let us grow,we need to go down on our knees in time like this to hear from God.
    Everything happens for a reason.May their soul rest in peace.

    I’m not one for conspiracies but how come this building which has been standing for years all of a sudden crumbled to the ground on the same day a Nigerian fighter jet went missing? Something doesn’t add up and I don’t like how the government stays silent about these ‘unsolved mysteries’ that seem to be occurring more regularly! Where are all the children that have been kidnapped? Where is the fighter jet? How come boko haram has free reign to do as they choose? Who are their sponsors and why haven’t those suspected been publicly tried? This veil of secrecy does not work for we the people!

    • jinkelele

      September 16, 2014 at 9:06 pm

      Please READ the facts not conspiracies. THere was no fighter jet it was a HELICOPTER for pete’s sake ! If you live in the vicinity of Ikotun Egbe ISOLO, Ajao estate it is common to find air-crafts flying.

      And the building has not been in existence for years – they were constructing storeys unto and existing structure whilst people were still living and dining on the groundfloor and first floor.
      It is irresponsible for construction to be ongoing whilst occupants are in a building.

      Why are there questions on why this building collapsed simply because it is in SCOAN premises. Building collapse because of structural deficiencies – when foundation can not take the load it will collapse. . The RESPONSIBLE thing to do is to own up and make amends not all these myths and urban legends

Let’s remain united there is only one God,one baptism and one Holy Spirit. the hiden things is ours and the man of God can not force God to show him everything. God knows better why. Deutr. 29:29

      Really? you are surprised? This isnt a trying moment, its gross irresponsiblity on the part of the church. So of course the other Men of God will be judgemental, this disaster could have been avoided.
      The little Intro Tech i did in High school taught me that when adding new floors to a new building u need to adjust the foundation, and it seems they obviously didnt.
      And really? not allowing NEMA workers into the place immediately after the incident. More lives could have been saved.

      We may not know why this happened, satan is a liar, God will show Himself great, man of God be strengthened and continue to do your part, leave all in the hands of God, He will vindicate you at the right time. You have been a blessing to many and the devil did not like it, that is why he tries to cause confusion. We are praying for you. They that are on your side are more than those against you. The Host of heaven is with you, only one third of fallen angels are against you, Have a holy anger against the enemy, do not mine all the negative comments.

    Any true believer who spends time criticising other believers is just a weakling. Just because some can not perform miracles in the Name of Jesus does not mean those who do use magic or are fake. No one is forced to go to SCOAN. Salvation is personal and TB Joshua does not answer to Man. Call him all the names you want, God is the ultimate judge and certainly has anointed him. Humans are baseless critics. You keep asking why he did not see this and its same way the jews mocked Christ Jesus on the cross. Physician heal yourself, what you did in Capernaum do it here also. Others said he healed others but he can not save himself.

    What makes you judgement freaks different from the Pharisees and Sadducees? Is this the first accident that has happened in Nigeria? May the souls of the departed rest in peace. Thank God for the life of this lady and all others. God knows ALL.

Go and ask Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor why his first wife Died years ago, ask Uma okpia why is wife Died also ,go ask Kumuyi or even Margerett Idahosa why God allowed her husband to die(late Arch Bishop) or is it Late Bimbo Odukoya husband you wil ask. People like you are the kind of people God uses as test to strengthen his Ministers because some of you don’t have purpose on earth,just talk any how like Job wife and Children. Even as you are talking now God can take your life now to make your family repent and serve him. God works in a mysterious ways that no man understand even his Son Jesus needed to be sacrafice for you to have life abudantly.YES, some shallow minded people will say why compare how self with Jesus?Yes we should, he is our example.the Bible says we are Crusified with Christ nevertheless I live. That is all case close,I know shallow minded people will react.I pray God deliver all of you in Jesus name Amen. May the soul of those that lost their life rest in Peace.

You will continue to do what God the works that God prepared in advance for you to carry out. The devil is a liar and he would always be an accuser of brethren.

    Do not be surprised at the painful test you are suffering, as though something unusual were happening to you. Rather be glad that you are sharing Christ’s sufferings, so that you may be full of joy when his glory is revealed. Happy are you if you are insulted because you are Christ’s followers; this means the glorious spirit of God is resting on you. However, if you are suffer because you are a christian,don,t be ashamed of it, but thank God that you bear Christ’ name. It is well!!!

When construction is going on, the sensible thing to do is to relocate the occupiers in the building to another….i sincerely hope the will be more survivors

    What we should be discussion is the fact that they didn’t get a government permit before adding more levels to the building. Whoever was in charge was totally irresponsible , everyone knows that a building is planned from the foundation and it’s very dangerous to add more levels to a build when the original foundation wasn’t planned for that. Why would they not respect the law of Nigeria which says you need government permit to carry out major renovations on an existing building. Also it is against safety laws to have people living in a building while that level of construction work is going on.

    There was a lot of negligence here and the government should start an investigation and charge those who were in charge of the building for criminal negligence. We Nigerians don’t seem to understand that Churches should be setting good examples. How can a Church not collect government permit ( Lagos State Government has said they didn’t have a permit) like they are supposed to and then you expect the followers to obey laws. Laws are in place to prevent such avoidable tragedies.

    1 Samuel 4:3
    When the soldiers returned to camp, the elders of Israel asked, “Why did the LORD bring defeat on us today before the Philistines? Let us bring the ark of the LORD’s covenant from Shiloh, so that he may go with us and save us from the hand of our enemies.”

    JOSHUA 7 : Joshua said, “Alas, O Lord GOD, why did You ever bring this people over the Jordan, only to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? If only we had been willing to dwell beyond the Jordan!! 8″O Lord, what can I say since Israel has turned their back before their enemies?

    DEFEAT IS NOT A NEW THING, SURELY EVEN THE ISRAELITES, THE CHOSEN PEOPLE OF GOD EXPERIENCED IT. FOR DIFFERENT REASONS
    10So the LORD said to Joshua, “Rise up! Why is it that you have fallen on your face?… GOD NEVER WANT US TO FALL ON OUR FACES BUT ENCOURAGES US TO FIND OUT WHERE THE PROBLEM IS, FOR HE WILL NEVER LET US BE HARMED FOR NO REASON.

    Israel has sinned, and they have also transgressed My covenant which I commanded them. And they have even taken some of the things under the ban and have both stolen and deceived. Moreover, they have also put them among their own things. 12″Therefore the sons of Israel cannot stand before their enemies; they turn their backs before their enemies, for they have become accursed. I will not be with you anymore unless you destroy the things under the ban from your midst. 13″Rise up! Consecrate the people and say, ‘Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow, for thus the LORD, the God of Israel, has said, “There are things under the ban in your midst, O Israel. You cannot stand before your enemies until you have removed the things under the ban from your midst.”14In the morning then you shall come near by your tribes. And it shall be that the tribe which the LORD takes by lot shall come near by families, and the family which the LORD takes shall come near by households, and the household which the LORD takes shall come near man by man. 15’It shall be that the one who is taken with the things under the ban shall be burned with fire, he and all that belongs to him, because he has transgressed the covenant of the LORD, and because he has committed a disgraceful thing in Israel.'”
    ONE PERSON’ SIN CAN COST THE REST OF THE CHURCH. WE STAND AND LOOK AT THE PROPHET WHAT ABOUT US IN THE CHURCH? WHAT IS THAT WE DO THAT THE LORD DOES NOT WANT US TO DO. LETS LOOK AT OURSELVES AND ASK OURSELVES IS WHAT I AM DOING AS SCOAN CHURCH MEMBER REPRESENTATIONAL OR AM I OPENING THE HEDGE OF PROTECTION FOR ATTACK FROM THE ENEMY. JUST LOOK AT HOW ACHAN COST THE ISRAELITES. WHEN WE POINT A FINGER LET US KNOW THE OTHER THREE ARE DIRECTED TO US.

    May the church say the truth at this moment no matter what it may be. The time is trying enough to hide armpits, but the truth as in all sinners have to confess (all) even the worst sins, should be said and worse not investigated for a church of such a standard. Tell us church (the truth)!!!

    I have two questions :
    1.) TB Joshua is apparently a “prophet”. Why did he not see this coming and order the building evacuated?
    2.) He has also supposedly raised people from the dead in the past. What is he waiting for now? Why not begin to raise those who have died in this tragedy?

    You call yourselves Christians and believe evil come to those who are of d devil. Job was a man who was blameless in d sight of God but did bad things not happen to him? Just as d devil said ” had I known I wouldn’t have crucified d Lord” he shall regret this as well. You all are blinded by d teachings of ur pastors but I advice u to find proof from d bible and don’t let d wrath of God descend on u for d bible says touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm.

    Remember that Elisha submitted unto Elijah, children of Israel were lead Moses and also in the new testment Paul,Peter,John etc. were used mightly by God to heal, bless and to bring salvation to people. Therefore submit unto servants of God like TB Joshua and God will see you through. READ MORE of the Bible . TB Joshua is real man of God

    The BIBLE teaches us not to judge our brothers and sisters. And so we should not! We should strive to live in the image on JESUS…to spread the gospel and love each other the way GOD loved us. We are all equal. For those that feel that they need a pastor/prophet to pray for them, then so be it, as long as JESUS enters their life and is brought closer to him. For those who pray directly to GOD, theres nothing wrong with that… Im one too, i personally feel that my relationship with GOD is private and he loves me just the same( note its MY opinion only). During this time of confusion i think its best to take it to GOD, pray about it and ask GOD to show you the truth, or help you understand why the church collapsed. Be careful to believe just anyone that has something to say,because ultimately GOD has all the answers and all the plans. I hope i didnt offend anyone, because thats not what i intended, instead i just want to emphasize that instead of figting what we do not understand, pray about it. Love and blessings

    People should not criticize and judge the man of God because the whole world has been benefiting from his ministries. Man of God may the Almighty God give you more anointing and God to continue to bless you and your household more and may all your enemies be put to shame, we continue to pray for you. i believe God has raised you to another level of anointing.

    We praise you Lord Jehova! We Glorify your Holly name for everything that has happened.. Let your wish be done.. We sing Halleluja for those that died seeking your face Oh Father.. See us through and have mercy.. Jesus once said, Forgive them Father, for they do not know what they are doing. I’m talking to you, as an individual soul.. Stop bad mouthing our Prophet Tata TB Joshua..before you start judging, ask yourself, how many testimonies, miracle healings, breakthoughs and deliverances, how many sponsures, charities and blessing TB Joshua has given for free.. If u are there waitng to See God bu flesh than m sorry, because u are wasting your time and the time is ticking for you to give your life to Jesus.. God can only work through a fellow person, as a medium to talk to u.. Jesus was also killed brutally for your sake, but you still continued and asked, why dont you talk to your Father if you are a real son of His so that non of this could happen to you..? My dear, i urgue you to watch Emmanuel Tv, see it for yourslf before you start badmouthing the annointed one.. Mercy be with you all.. Thank you Lord.
