Death toll in Nigerian church guesthouse collapse touches 70

  • At least 70 people are now confirmed dead in the guesthouse collapse at a church in Nigeria last week.

    Dozens of victims are believed to be South African nationals.

    Rescuers managed to pull out more than 130 people out of the debris, but they fear more could be trapped underneath. 

    The double-story guesthouse, located at a church run by the popular preacher T.B. Joshua in Lagos, collapsed during construction work, reports said.
