Stampede In Synagogue Church Kills Three...

No fewer than three worshippers at the Synagogue Church of all Nations, Ikotun, Lagos State, have been confirmed dead after a stampede on the church’s premises on Saturday.



PUNCH Metro learnt that the victims were part of a crowd that struggled to see the church’s General Overseer, Prophet Temitope Joshua, during a special healing service.

Punch correspondent gathered that while two of the victims were identified as Emeka Okonkwo and Emmanuel Oherin, the third victim had yet to be identified.

Their corpses were said to have been deposited in a morgue in the state.
An eyewitness, who did not want to be identified, said the stampede occurred around 4.30am.

He said, “It was the church’s annual deliverance and healing programme. Usually at this time, the church becomes a beehive of activities as people come in their thousands to see the prophet for miracles.

“People lodge in different hotels surrounding the church. And they all arrive at the church very early.

“There is a canopy on the premises where worshippers are screened before they see the man of God.

“However, on Saturday, after being screened, the crowd was much and they started struggling through the doorway to see the prophet. In the process, three people collapsed. They were rushed to the Isolo General Hospital, where they were confirmed dead.”

Another source said the two victims were identified through their phones, adding that the third victim did not have any means of identification.

“Their families were immediately contacted and they identified them. The police from the Ikotun division were also contacted,” he added.

A police source said the corpses were taken in an ambulance, adding that the Ikotun Divisional Crime Officer and the Area Commander, Area M, accompanied them to the mortuary.

As of 2pm when our correspondent left the area, a service was still on in Synagogue.

When contacted, an official of the church, who did not want to be identified, urged our correspondent to forward his enquiries to the church’s email address.

He said, “Mr. Folarin, while I appreciate the fact that you have to do your job as a journalist, I also must protect my personal integrity. I will advise you send a mail to info@scoan.org to confirm before publishing any story.

“Sometimes, rumours get to the press and injure the reputation (of) our subjects, thereby making journalism look like a witch-hunt.

“I will also advise you to be most objective. Please send a mail to the email address before publishing any story.”

Punch correspondent sent an enquiry around 3.54pm which had yet to be replied to as of press time.

When Punch called a telephone number spotted on the church’s website, another official with a foreign accent, denied the incident.

She said, “Nothing happened on the church premises yesterday. Nobody died. Nobody. Thank you.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, however, confirmed the incident, adding that investigations were ongoing.

She said, “The story is true. Investigation is ongoing as we await the result of the autopsy. For now, we are treating the case as sudden and unnatural deaths.”

I get sick in my stomach when I see news like this. Who gets screened to see a pastor??? Did anyone get screened to see Jesus or any other prophet in the bible. Let's continue deceiving ourselves in the name of religion. The rate we have churches in this country one would then wonder why we have so much suffering abound. Black people with black mentality.

"PUNCH Metro learnt that the victims were part of a crowd that struggled to see the church’s General Overseer, Prophet Temitope Joshua, during a special healing service"

When people travel from a far distance, another state or country and struggle for weeks sometimes, buy holy water of 7k, pay consultation fees of thousands of naira to see a so called 'man of God' for healing, then something is wrong with their faith and their medulla oblongata. A man who isn't better than you in any form than the arrangee miracles he performs. Someone who has the same link to the Almighty as you.

Christians and Muslims who do this are on the wrong path or faith. Coming all the way from Sokoto to Lagos for a special annual healing program or to Shilloh with a pastor whose power is often times from the devil, or with a voodo performing alfa like there is no God in your base. Like you cant communicate with your God personally. Aren't you the biggest religious MUMU of all time?

I repeat, if you travel from another state to attend Shilloh in Ota, or a special healing programme at Synagougue, seeking deliverance and miracles, you are the biggest religious mumu of all times, and the pastor who organizes and encourages that like he is a God to be worshipped is on a wrong faith QED.

They won't put the right people in the right places. When they attract crowd,they ought to put safety measures inplace but they don't care. They don't just give a damnn. How can a church get paramedics in church environment? During healing convention. They will call it an abomination.
The most painful part is that they put more effort into protecting the image of their church rather than respect the dead. They will never put measures in place to avoid these events when they won't even accept that it happened. Nonsense! These are people's children, fathers, friends that their families will be expecting to spend the christmas with. How did we get here?

Shut up there you idiot. I said shut the fuck up you imp. So there are no single measure people take to prevent stampede? What nonsense crow? Is that more than the crowd benny hinn and Bonke pulls.
You stupid lot should better start taking responsibities and thats the only way you will look for solutions.
So the one that happened in akawibom because of crowd is the people's fault. Don't you know your church capacity? Why must he allow all the crowd first before starting healing service? Why not spread out registration all thru the month and have the healing service in sessions? Were there paramedics on sight? What if all those people needed was Oxygen to survive? Do you know the distance from SCOAN to isolo gen hosp? Do you think having a medical team on ground is a safety measure that would have helped????
May you be the next victim of church negligence and may no one be held accountable.

You are a very big fool. He should be responsible. Any where there is crowd, there must be measures put in place for STAMPEDE. You are very callous and stupid for making that statement. Do you know what happens when a little knockout is heard in d midst of crowd. You are a very loud illiterate. Go and read about stampede.
Secondly,why are they denying it? I guess that's my fault too. People died,you fool.

You are very stupid. So everywhere there is crowd, people must die.
I heard they did one Shiloh programme, did you hear any nonsense news? Did you? Those ones are not crowd abi? You re next.

Shebi they just did shiloh! I did not hear any sickening news oh, meanwhile the crowd there should be more than the ones in that synagogue and that uyo church.
People open your eyes. They should better change name to calvary not synagogue. Atleast make people write will before taking up the cross to calvary.

A nation is totally destroyed if it has more religious center than factories.

Typical case study is Nigeria and China; China is growing industrially but Nigeria you have a zillion improverished people wailing to the sky.

Even the bible says I will bless the works of your hands not the thoughts of your mind Cus if it's by the thoughts we will all be rich.
