Two South African children are suing the mega church of controversial Nigerian televangelist, Pastor Temitope Balogun (TB) Joshua over the death of their father, the BBC reported this afternoon.

The report credited the information to Bolajii Ayorinde, the lawyer of the litigants.

“The three-year-old and six-year-old have filed papers in court in Nigeria’s main city, Lagos, demanding compensation of more than 8m rand ($521,000; £375,000) from the Synagogue Church of All Nations,” the report said., adding: 

“Their father was among 116 people killed when a hostel owned by the church collapsed in Lagos in 2014.

“A coroner ruled last year that TB Joshua should be prosecuted over the collapse of the building, saying the church was culpable because of criminal negligence.

“The pastor and church have consistently denied any wrongdoing.”
