A survivor of the collapse of the Synagogue Church of All Nations building blamed the tragedy on Satan.
A man named Taiwo Taiwo, who was among 131 people pulled out from the rubble, narrated his ordeal
Taiwo told reporters in a briefing organised by the church that he was helping visitors at the guesthouse, which could accommodate up to 350 people in its dining hall.
“Most of them were actually in the church having a lecture from the Wise Man (Pastor T.B. Joshua). People were coming back to have their lunch,” said the 28-year-old.
“I just noticed a very sharp sound and I looked up and I saw the wall just coming off…, like something you see in the movies. It didn’t look real.
“Consciously, the (Holy) Spirit said to me, ‘This is not normal’. Next thing…, it was all dark. People were screaming, shouting. I just kept calm.”
Taiwo, who appeared unscathed apart from a bandaged finger, said the accident happened at about 1:10 pm and he was only pulled free at 5:05 pm the following day.
