The founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet Temitope Joshua has attributed element of sabotage and terror to the collapsed building in his church. The church said a strange aircraft was hovering around the church before the collapse of the six stores building. In a video footage captured by a Closed Circuit Television system within the Ikotun premises of the church, shown to journalists, on Saturday, a strange plane was seen hovering over the collapsed building for about 30 minutes in an unusual manner before the building went down like a pack of card. Explaining how he escaped, Pastor Joshua noted that while he was praying in another building within the church, he got a call informing him of a strange plane hovering over the premises and left the praying room, stating that as he stepped out, he got a second alert of the plane hovering over the hotel meant for mostly foreign members before the building collapsed. In the footage, the plane hovered four times between 11: 30am and 12.45 pm after which the building went down. Joshua said everything showed that he was a target of the attack, saying that he was praying when he and others noticed the ‘unusual’ hovering of the light plane which made the church to inform security operatives of the unusual aircraft movement. Indication that the church might have been targeted in an attack of a sort became obvious as the plane hovered around through an illegal flight path. Joshua who said people might not believe him now but declared “that the truth will be revealed in the next three days,” in a brief chat with some journalists in the church premises on Saturday, said he could not specifically lay claim to the cause of the sad development. The emergency workers succeeded in recovering the bodies of 17 dead persons, as well as rescuing about 123 others trapped under the rubbles after the building collapsed at about 12.54pm on Saturday afternoon.
