'TB Joshua is biggest tourism draw card for the state of Lagos'

It's been four years since the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (Scoan) collapsed in Nigeria.

116 people were killed including 85 South Africans.

What has happened to the inquest that was taking place in Nigeria? Has the case been solved or is it still hanging in the air?

Joanne Joseph spoke to Nigerian journalist Solomon Ashoms to get an update.

The last time we heard about it was in May.

Ashoms says that TB Joshua is a very influential man in Nigeria.

He is one of the biggest tourism draw cards for the state of Lagos. The politicians would look at him and not want to make pronouncements.

Solomon Ashoms, Nigeria journalist

Everyone has a price. I wouldn't be surprised if this case disappears.
