The Media for Ethnic Equality (MEE) has urged the Federal Government to take necessary steps to unravel the mystery surrounding the collapse of a section of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) building in Lagos recently.
The group in a release signed by its Executive Director, Gboyega Adeoye want government to dig into the mysterious Hercules C-130 that hovered round the building several times before the strange collapse of the building.
Independent investigation carried out by the media group confirmed that the aircraft hovered round the building four times before the collapse of the building in one fell swoop..
“We seek to know what a fighter plane was doing at midday over a residential area and most especially, over the building that collapsed under strange circumstances.
” We know that the flight routes of military aircraft are scheduled by the appropriate military service and are recorded in the service radar, thus making investigating the matter a simple matter,” MEE stated.
The group further stressed that the Hercules which usually fly at low altitude as a result of its design are capable of carrying a heavy military load of several tonnes “and in particular, heavy armoured tanks and as such could on its own cause vibration that could lead to the building collapse.”
“It can contain sophisticated war machinery, equipped with mechanisms for production of powerful electromagnetic waves, powerful ultrasound and infrared waves with the ability to focus on specific targets. They are also capable of causing strong vibration in buildings, equivalent to bombing without being perceived by the human eyes or ears. The focus on the beam on specific targets like building can result in the collapse of the building, either directly or at a later time.”
The group warned that the case should not be treated with levity, noting that the current spate of insecurity and terrorists’ activities in the country in recent times calls for serious scrutiny of the issue.
“The date of the incident is also suspect (September 12) which refers by definition to a day after a similar collapse of the multi storey building, the World Trade Center which was blown by terrorists in the United States on September 11.”
