President Goodluck Jonathan earlier today, September 20, paid a visit to the site of the collapsed building at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) Lagos.

Speaking to AFP, Ibrahim Farinloye of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said the president who came to see things for himself, met with the founder of the church, T.B. Joshua and also expressed his condolence to the families of the deceased.

According to him, Jonathan promised to investigate the cause of the collapse which left no fewer than 86 people dead and several injured.

Vanguard reports that President Jonathan sent experts to the scene of the collapsed building yesterday to commiserate with the church leaders and also to conduct immediate investigation into the immediate and remote causes of the collapse and report back to the FG.

The FG team which comprised of government officials, including experts on building control, was led by NEMA Director of Search and Rescue, Air Commodore Charles Otegbade.

Otegbade said: “The team has been mandated to collect all necessary data, samples from SCOAN for further investigation, with the aim of determining the immediate and remote cause(s) of the disaster.”
