T.B.-Joshua

Following last Friday’s tragic collapse of a building inside the Synagogue Church of God premises which killed 80 people, an audio tape has emerged and in it you can hear someone who sounds a whole lot like the leader of SCOAN Prophet TB Joshua offering N50,000 each to journalists who were invited to the church for a press briefing.

The N50,000 apparently was money for the journalists to “buy fuel in their cars”. On the tape after telling the journalists about the envelopes each stuffed with N50,000 cash bribe “fuel money”, you can also allegedly hear Prophet TB Joshua saying “I would be very happy if you can help me go & correct some of the things that is inside the paper”.

Following the tragic building collapse it was reported that followers of TB Joshua attacked journalists who tried to cover the collapse. Some journalists were reportedly beaten up for trying to take pictures while others got their cameras smashed.

The next day Prophet T.B Joshua invited journalists who had returned to the scene to cover the rescue efforts. He denied his church members had attacked the journalists. He said the attacks were carried out by “people in the community” [READ HERE IF YOU MISSED IT]

These are not the best of times for Chris Oyakhilome. The head pastor of Chris Oyakhilome is embroiled in a bitter, public and scandalous divorce with estranged wife Anita Oyakhilome and now both of them are being investigated by the UK’s Charity Commission for the N941m (£3.6 million) transfer by their church Christ Embassy to overseas entities between 2008 and 2012.

News of the investigation came via a statement released by the Charity Commission on Wednesday, September 3, 2014, which stated that a statutory inquiry had been opened to investigate Christ Embassy over “a number of serious concerns relating to the use of charitable funds, in particular large connected party payments and the potential misapplication of grant funding.”

According to Premium Times, The investigation was initiated in July 2013, but after interviewing members of the board of trustees and perusing the records and books of the church for a year, the commission was still not convinced that the church has been prudent in managing its finances.

The leader of the Catholic Church Pope Francis I, during a press conference aboard his jet today as he returned from a trip to south Korea, said that he has only 2 – 3 years to live!

Pope Francis also mentioned that just like his predecessor, Benedict XVI who stepped down from the papacy in February 2013, Pope Francis has said he could also retire as Pope even though it is frowned upon by Catholic theologians. Popes usually stay in office until death.

Speaking about his possible retirement he said,

I see it as the generosity of the people of God. I try to think of my sins, my mistakes, not to become proud. Because I know it will last only a short time

He then added light- heartedly

Two or three years and then I’ll be off to the Father’s House.

I first came to know about Evangelical minister Helen Ukpabio when I watched the 2008 Channel 4 Dispatches documentary 2008 the Channel 4 Disptaches documentary Saving Africa’s Witch Children which exposed Ukpabio’s ministry for crude exorcisms and deliverance sessions for young children, which is said to have fueled witchcraft accusations against kids especially in Eastern Nigeria.
