The return of the bodies of the deceased South Africans was riddled with drama with some taking months to be repatriated.
The inquiry into the cause of the collapse was also stalled when judiciary workers in Lagos went on a strike.
Officials had said the structure of the building was not sound and lacked proper permits but TB Joshua has consistently denied any wrongdoing, saying foul play was involved.
He has not been charged for the collapse but the engineers responsible for the building face criminal charges.
