Lagos State Chief Medical Examiner and consultant Pathologist, Professor John Obafunwa, has said that the bodies of six victims of Prophet T.B Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations building collapse have not been identified, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

Obafunwa made this known while presenting the final report of the coroner’s inquest set up to unearth the cause of the incident.

According to NAN, the inquest was set up by the Lagos State Government to investigate the September 12, 2014 building collapse, which killed 116 people, mainly South Africans.

The report, entitled ‘Report on the Collapsed Building In Synagogue Church Of All Nations’, was admitted by the court as Exhibit 034.

Obafunwa said;
“The first set of DNA and fingerprint results were sent to me on November 3, 2014. Thereafter, an identification committee was set up.


“At this time, 74 South Africans (as well as few from Switzerland, Zimbabwe, Democratic Republic of Congo, etc) were identified and subsequently released to the South African authorities on November 15, 2014.


“Again, the identification committee sat on February 4, 2015, following the receipt of other results from South Africa.


“During this time, another 11 South Africans were identified and again released to their authorities on February 5, 2015, thus concluding the release of a total of 85 victims of South African origin.


“The respective death certificates as well as embalment certificates were also handed over to the South African authorities.”


He added that, in addition to these figures, 25 others (comprising 22 Nigerians, two Benenois and one Togolese) were identified and released, bringing the total number of deceased individuals to 110.

However, the six bodies left in morgues (three each in Isolo and Yaba mortuaries) are yet to be identified. In total, the victims of the building collapse comprise 60 males, and 56 females; among the male victims was a child allegedly aged six years.
