The Police is still investigating the recent collapse of a guest house within the Synagogue Church of All Nations building which killed 116 people in September 12.

Despite the cause of of the six-storey building collapse is still unclear there are assumptions of controlled demolition. Such a surmise was voiced during the ongoing Coronary Inquest into the cause of the mishap on Thursday.

The Divisional Police Officer of Ikotun Police Division, Haruna Alaba (CSP) said that after watching a CCTV footage of controlled demolition of buildings shown on Emmanuel TV, he was of the opinion that the Synagogue incident could have been an act of sabotage.

Alaba claims that he was the first person to arrive the scene after receiving a call from the command control room, asking the Area M, Idimu command to investigate purported strange aircraft at Ikotun. (The police got a distress call that a strange aircraft was flying low around the Ikotun area.)

A few hours later, one of his officers assigned to the Synagogue Church called him that one of the buildings within the church

After a while they contacted police officers attached to the airport the same day to find out if there was any training but no reply was received.

The court has ordered the police to provide the certified true copy of the Ikotun police division diary of the incident, starting from September 12 to 18. While the church was directed to produce the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) footage of the collapsed scene from Sept. 12 to Sept. 19. The inquest was adjourned till Nov.19 for further hearing.
