Following the collapse of a building within the premises of the Synagogue Church of All Nation (SCOAN) that killed over 110 persons, Magistrate Oyetade Komolafe has on Tuesday fixed July 8 as the date to pass verdict.
If we recall, the SCOAN founder, Prophet T. B. Joshua, on Sunday- 14th September 2014 broadcasted to viewers worldwide via Emmanuel TV, footage captured by security cameras of the horrific moment before the guest-house collapsed within the church premises.
However, ex-Lagos State Commissioner for Physical Development and Urban Planning, Toyin Ayinde Adedamola, had told the coroner’s court headed by Chief Magistrate, Oyetade Komolafe, that that 6-storey building does not have any approval from the state government.
Biedomo Iguniewei, who claimed to be a weapon researcher, revealed to the court that high infrasonic radiation attack was the cause of the collapse.
The coroner requested that Iguniewei present to the court evidence, since he claimed to have adopted the Synagogue incident as his academic project.
According to Iguniewei, an infra-sound is a type of sound measuring below 20Hz, which is below what the normal human ear can detect.
He said, “The striking thing about infrasound is that you cannot hear it and you cannot see it but it causes remarkable vibrations when used as a weapon”
“Those of us who work with the security know that weapons are produced and they are always looking for where to test them.
“I am of the opinion that what happened that day, especially with the strange plane-like objects seen in the video, was that an infrasonic radiation was fired at the building; and if you observe, you will discover that it took about 30 minutes for the building to come down.
“It is important for this court to be aware of this option but why it could have been used here is another matter entirely.
“But since I have been pondering why a building would collapse the way this one did, this is the most plausible explanation for me.”
