Lagos state governor Babatunde Fashola has been given seven days by a Human rights group to arrest the founder of The Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet T.B. Joshua.
This is in reaction to the tragic collapse of a 6 storey guest house belonging to the Synagogue church in which 115 people were said to have lost their lives.
The group, Vote for Service Initiative, a good governance group has in a letter dated September 25 and which was forwarded to the Lagos State governor demanded the government make the outcome of its probe into the collapse of the SCOAN guest house public.
The group also accused the administration of delaying the probe based on “the mantra of
‘Touch not my Anointed.’”
“We are Vote for Service Initiative. We like to remind your good office that, it was in this state your attorney general and commissioner for justice prosecuted and convicted Rev. King to death by hanging for (killing) one of his devotees with ignited fire.
It is also the same attorney general office that prosecuted recently Mr. Arowolo to death by hanging for killing his wife with knife and cudgel, how much more the man that (killed) over 115 souls through criminal negligence and brazen impunity,” the group said.
They later demanded that Fashola apologizes to Lagosians for the late implementation of the the Physical Planning Law of Lagos State, and as well, compensate the victims.
“Failure to which we will be left with no other option than to approach the competent court of jurisdiction for an order of mandamus for your good office to implement the law you signed in 2010 without delay,” the letter added.
