It is being reported that the number of people who died in the tragic building collapse inside TB Joshua‘s Synagogue Church of All Nations has risen to 115!!!
This figure was given by Jeff Radebe, the minister in charge of SA’s response to the tragedy. Of the 115 people 86 are South African. Mr Radebe is urging the Nigerian government to “investigate” the tragedy.
Many are still reeling from the news that TB Joshua offered journalists N50,000 each as bribe to report “nice” things about him and his church following the tragedy. [READ HERE IF YOU MISSED IT]
Neither Joshua nor his church has responded to the leaked tapes.
In other news it is being reported that the government of South Africa is sending a plane to Nigeria to airlift South African survivors of the collapse back home. It is believed at least 30 South Africans are in hospitals in Lagos and they are apparently under guard by security employed by SCOAN.
