MasterwebNews 22/6/16 - SCOAN: I Saw An Aircraft Hover Over Building Before It Collapsed - Lagos State Witness

[ Masterweb Reports: Nosa Osazuwa reports ] - A Consultant Urban Planner and former Lagos State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Olutoyin Adedamola Ayinde has told Justice Lawal Akapo of the Lagos High Court, Ikeja Division that he actually observed an aircraft hover over the building three times before it eventually collapsed on Friday, September 12, 2014. According to him, two days after the collapse of the building, he visited the sight of the collapse in company of heads of affiliate agencies as an advance team of the governor. He submitted that after surveying the sight of the collapse, he and the then Governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola proceeded to the office of the General Overseer of The SCOAN, Prophet T.B. Joshua where they were given the CCTV footages of the incident as it happened.
 
 
Mr Ayinde added that, although he could not ascertain the exact distance of the aircraft from the building prior to its collapse. Undergoing cross-examination by the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecution, Mrs Idowu Alakija, the witnessed also agreed that there was a record copy of the survey of the land upon which the collapsed building constructed. He however submitted that the collapse six-storey building not have a permit. But some analysts who spoke to the press on conditions of anonymity argued that they were aware that the church had applied for the building permit but which was being processed by the ministry before the unfortunate collapse occurred.
 
Justice Akapo, having entertained various fundamental questions from both counsel, adjourned proceedings to Wednes day, June 22, 2016 for continuation of trial.
