Almost10 months since the beginning of sitting, the Lagos Coroner’s Inquest into the collapse of a six-storey building belonging to the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), in Ikeja, Lagos has indicted the church for “criminal negligence” and recommended that it be prosecuted. 116 people died in the tragic incident.
The court said the Church did not get the necessary permit or approval before commencing construction of the building.
The Lagos State Government inaugurated the Coroner’s Inquest under the state’s Coroner’s System Law No. 7 of 2007 to investigate the cause and circumstances leading to the death of 116 people, mostly South Africans, following the building collapse of September 12, 2014, and bring its findings and recommendations to the appropriate authorities.
