Lagos Demolishes N100m Church During Service! by godman01(m): 1:48am On Dec 25, 2012
Officials of the Lagos State Government have demolished a certain ‘Pure Fire Miracles Ministries International’ (PFMI) church located at Afero village on Lekki-Epe Expressway.

The church was having its annual convention with over 10, 000 worshippers from 12 foreign countries in attendance when the officials stormed the building.

The bulldozers from the taskforce moved in immediately and three of the buildings were brought down before the traditional ruler of Epe, Oba Kamorudeen Ishola Animashaun, Chairman of Epe Local Government and other prominent citizens in the community intervened to stop the exercise.

It was gathered that men of the Lagos Task Force, accompanied by officials from the Ministry for Physical Planning and Urban Development (MPPUD), carried out the demolition over allegation that there was no approval for the Attention of the building.

The church structures, worth over N100 million, were erected on a 10-acre of land. The structures comprise six auditoriums, offices, residential buildings and buildings for other purpose.

According to the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Mr. Toyin Ayinde, “there was no approval for the church building and notices had been served to the church asking them to vacate the land, because the land fell within the proposed Lekki International Airport”

The church however disputed the claims by the government that it had no approval. A document from the legal adviser to the church’s pastor, Enoch Idowu Aminu, Messrs Ibrahim A. Shittu and Co., of Probono Chamber, showed that the land was purchased from Ikujenya Okanlawon Ikuforiji Chieftaincy Family, with the address at 3, Ikujenya Street, Bado Oke, Epe, Lagos State, on 21 May, 2010.

The purchase, according to the cleric, was carried out as a result of the information contained in the Lagos State of Nigeria Official Gazette, No. 29, Volume No 27, September 1, 1994.

This was confirmed in the official receipt of payment, dated 23 November, 2011, in the sum of N1.64 million. The church claimed that the government lied by saying that the property fell within the proposed airport as other buildings in the same vicinity were not demolished.

Ten years old Camerounian girl, Miracle Bosco,
was shocked when the building was pulled
down, saying, “why is it that police came and
destroy the house of God? I am sad because all
the money our parents spent here has become a
waste.
Please, help us to beg the Governor to
stop this demolition. God is not happy and I am
not happy.
Ridic! grin grin grin

A young sheeple to the gloray of tha pastor.. Halleluuuu!

Young Sheeple, tell your parents to stop investing in someone else's business & instead put money away for your schooling so your pastor won't charge you N1m per semester in years to come after sinking in all your savings & tithes to build the school! grin

Talk about: Their prophets didn't see that one coming! cheesy

Right move, stubbornness should be met with force. The pastor simply couldn't let go of his material possession, after all he thought he had built a legacy to leave his wife and child.

Overzealousness per excellence!. Is it the building you want to pull down or the People inside. It is obvious that the Govt. has more than a passing interest in that property

Hahahahhahahahaahhhahahahhahaha grin Fashola the dictator even worse than Abacha. I gues his lapdogs on Nairaland will justify this injustice; foolish people. If the church was on the right of way of the airport why weren't other structures near the church demolished knowing that airports need a wide expanse of land. That aside why didn't the state govt wait till no one was in the church before demolition ? Fashola just keeps confirming himsel as the worst tyranical dictator Nigeria has ever come across with his puppet master Tinubu as usual screwing his Ya/sh in the required direction. Hahahhahahahahahahahhahahaha grin

When Abdulkareem Adisa was Works Minister and was demolishing buildings and churches with reckless abandonm, he never knew God was watching. His judgement was swift. Today where is Adisa?

People should learn.
