JOHANNESBURG - A family says they are relieved to finally get closure after the Nigeria building collapse tragedy.

The bodies of 81 South Africans are due to be brought back into the country tomorrow.

In total, over 100 people died when a guest house attached to 'Prophet' TB Joshua's Synagogue Church of All Nations collapsed in September.

Among them is the body of a Plettenberg Bay woman who was in Lagos on a pilgrimage with her husband.

Her husband Anthony van der Byl has told Eyewitness News that he is satisfied with government's efforts to bring back the bodies.

"As far as the South African support is from government's side, they have done their bit. I am relieved to find out from government that my wife is a part of this group."

The collapse occurred when three extra storeys were being added to the existing two of a guest house of the church compound, where visitors from abroad flock to stay.

An inquiry is still underway to determine what caused the tragedy.
