TB Joshua faces prosecution for 2014 church collapse

Nigerian evangelist TB Joshua did not show up in court where he was expected to be prosecuted for the collapse of a building belonging to his Synagogue Church of All Nations, which claimed more than 116 lives in September 2014.

702's Xolani Gwala on Monday spoke to EWN Nigeria correspondent, Samson Omale, on the charges faced by the church leader and the engineers involved in the construction of the church's building.

Listen to the interview below:

TB Joshua didn't make it to court for the beginning of the trial... We expect that another date will be set (within 72 hours). The court will have to subpoena him if he fails to appear in court.
