Prophet TB Joshua has broken his silence on the building collapse that killed over 40 of his followers at one of his guest houses at around 1500 hours on Saturday.

He says the yet to be identified 'attackers' were actually after him!

118 people were rescued alive by the Lagos State Emergency Agency in conjunction with the church members. By yesterday morningm 41 people had reportedly been confirmed dead.

In a video footage captured by a Closed Circuit Television system within the Ikotun premises of the church, shown to journalists, on Saturday, a strange plane was seen hovering over the collapsed building for about 30 minutes in an unusual manner before the building went down like a pack of card.

Prophet Joshua noted that while he was praying in another building within the church, he got a call informing him of a strange plane hovering over the premises and left the praying room, stating that as he stepped out, he got a second alert of the plane hovering over the hotel meant for mostly foreign members before the building collapsed.

In the footage, the plane hovered four times between 11.30am and 12.45pm after which the building went down.

TB Joshua said everything showed that he was a target of the attack, saying that he was praying when he and others noticed the 'unusual' hovering of the light plane which made the church to inform security operatives of the unusual aircraft movement.

Indication that the church might have been targeted in an attack of a sort became obvious as the plane hovered around through an illegal flight path.

Prophet TB Joshua, who is well know for prophesying other people's misfortunes said people might not believe him now but declared "that the truth will be revealed in the next three days," in a brief chat with some journalists in the church premises on Saturday. He added that he could not specifically lay claim to the cause of the sad development. – tribune
