Lagos megachurch negligent over deadly building collapse: coroner

Lagos (AFP) – A coroner on Wednesday said a megachurch run by popular Nigerian preacher TB Joshua was criminally negligent and should be prosecuted after a building collapse killed 116, most of them South Africans.

“The church must be investigated and prosecuted for not obtaining the relevant approval before embarking on the construction of the building,” Oyetade Komolafe said in his ruling on the tragedy.

“The church was culpable because of criminal negligence resulting in the death of the victims.”
