An inquest instituted by the Lagos state government into the collapse of a guest house owned by the Synagogue Church of All Nations has indicted the church for negligence.

The guest house collapsed in September 2014, killing 114 people, many of them South Africans, who travelled to Nigeria for the church’s service in Lagos.

The inquiry sat for months and set July 8 for its ruling.

In his ruling on Wednesday, Oyetade Komolafe, the judge, ordered the prosecution of the contractors who constructed the collapsed building.

“The church must be investigated and prosecuted for not obtaining the relevant approval before embarking on the construction of the building,” he ruled.

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