Following the September 12 tragedy at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), more revelations keep appearing.
The building belonging to the church collapsed Friday afternoon killing scores of people. After the incident numerous allegations were made in terms of what could cause the collapse.
It would be recalled that the building had initially 2 storeys and it was later reconstructed into a 5-storey building. After the tragedy the Lagos State Government claimed they had not provided approval for the change of structure. It was alleged that the collapse could occur as a result of the move.
However the SCOAN founder Pastor T.B. Joshua said it was a terror attack and disclosed the footage, which shows events before and after collapse. In the video it is clearly seen that some aircraft was hovering over the building four times within short period of time before the guest house fell down.
Meanwhile new details of this story have surfaced. Which is no allegation, but the information provided on the SCOAN official website. According to the page, the SCOAN had 3 different locations in the past, and there were serious troubles with the church building. Read the paragraph taken as it is from www.scoan.org:
"The physical structure of The SCOAN has gone through different stages. Each stage served a purpose! Before moving to our present position, The SCOAN has had three previous locations. The roof of the first church was blown off by a storm, the second church was washed away by a flood while the third church also collapsed due to severe weather conditions. Shall we say all these happened without God’s knowledge? No. In every situation, God is still saying something. Today, The SCOAN is an architectural masterpiece located in the heart of Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos."
Still, the investigation into the cause of collapse has started and the official results are yet to be provided.
Meanwhile the famous clergyman, speaking after the tragedy which killed according to the recent update 80 people, said they were going through hard times:
"God sometimes uses hard times to draw us to Himself so that we can take our proper position and possession in Him."
