More survivors of  a building collapse over a week ago in Lagos, Nigeria arrived at the O.R Tambo International Airport, yesterday morning.

The guesthouse belonging to the Synagogue Church Of All Nations collapsed on 12 September 2014, leaving 115 people dead.

At the airport, police officers and security guards came in numbers to escort the survivors, some which were slightly injured, into a room where they apparently received "counselling".

Survivors looked tense after the said "counselling", and as a result, most of them did not want to speak to the media.

Members of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) who were also at the airport told DRUM that they were there to support their members who survived the collapse. One EFF member said, "We lost two members," adding that the families of these two victims were not ready to speak to the media.

A survivor, Anthony Van Derbl from the Western Cape said he was with his wife Louise having lunch when the building collapsed. He said, “My wife also died and we were lying not far from one another. Her last words to me were: ‘keep on praying’ and that what I did before she died. It’s painful but I know for sure, 100% that she is with Jesus Christ.”

Asked why people would go so far to attend a church service, Anthony said, “Jesus is all over but when you have fellowship with people who have come a long way with Christ, it benefits yourself and your family.”

“Jesus exists and he helped us all the time while we were underneath there. There’s no one to be blamed. This man [T.B. Joshua] is the most humble person in the world and his teachings are quite simple to understand,” he added.
