Apparently TB Joshua has failed to turn up to court for a second time:
Oyetade Komolafe was furious that TB Joshua was not in court for the start of the hearing, which is examining the circumstances of the September 12 tragedy in which 116 people were killed.
“So, TB Joshua is not in court, the (building) contractor is not in court. Any of the witnesses who is not in court today will be arrested,” the coroner said.
“I will issue a warrant of arrest for such a witness. I think the court has been lenient enough.” (source)

In other news, the origins of the mysterious plane has been discovered, and the idea of it having anything to do with the building collapse has been dispelled:
“We have found out that the aircraft belongs to the NAF (Nigerian Air Force) and was said to be on a circuit training mission at the time of the incident,” Police investigator Superintendent Olusola Agoi told the hearing on Wednesday.
“This was confirmed by the NAF,” he added.
The plane, which was flying at 1,100 feet (300 metres), was on the flight path to the nearby Lagos airport, according to experts who dismissed Joshua’s claim.
“Based on the distance of the aircraft to the building, it was practically impossible for the aircraft to cause the collapse,” Lagos State building inspector Olutoyin Ayinde had said last month. (source)
