TB Joshua’s Family, Disciples Fight Dirty Over Control Of Synagogue

Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) is presently enmeshed in bitter fight over the control of the ministry.

There are allegations and counter allegations about who should lead the Church after the death of its founder, Prophet TB Joshua.

One of TB Joshua’s disciples, Joseph David has faulted the attempt by TB Joshua’s wife, Evelyn to be the leader of the church. 

He says Evelyn was never part of the church and its activities while her husband was alive.

David maintained that the disciples had to go underground when it was obvious that they are being hunted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Countering him, Prophet T.B Joshua’s daughter, Promise said the allegations against her mother are unfounded.

She said; “The allegations against my mother by Joseph David are unfounded. David and others are only trying to give the church a bad name because their atrocities were exposed.”

“We saw CCTV footage of some persons moving money from the church. Some of the drivers involved in the act had made confessional statements indicting the disciples.”

“Everything that happened here was recorded and at the right time, depending on how everything goes, it will be put out for the public to see.”

“The constitution of the church was followed to the latter and that was how my mum became a trustee. The day it happened, concerned members of the church appealed to the Corporate Affairs Commission and everything was done legally.”

“From the beginning of the ministry, there have always been three trustees. The second time my dad made a change, the board consisted of my dad, mum and my dad’s nephew, Hassan.”

“Last year, my dad wanted to put me on the board. His nephew, who used to go to court for him (over the church building collapse), left the church. That was how Joseph (David) was brought in. He did not even know he was a trustee until my dad passed on.”

“The only reason my dad made him a trustee was for him to attend the court sessions. My dad would not want my mum to be going to court for him. Joseph was the one that was following Hassan, who left last year.”

“After my father’s death, a committee was created and during the period, we got reports of heavy movements of cash.”

“Even the drivers they were using to move the money were the ones reporting these things. There is also a video where they were caught moving the money. The church lawyers then advised that we should report to the authorities and that was how they were invited.”

“The foreigners, who were called to carry the money without knowing what it was, went to the EFCC and were released after they were cleared to go back to their countries with the intention of coming back in about a month. They were not deported; they are coming back.”

“These people talking are those I believe are guilty; all the other ones went to the EFCC and returned after they were interviewed. All they had to do was to explain what happened because there is video evidence. I don’t know why they are running; if you are not guilty, go and explain yourself.”

“Since the funeral of my father, there had not been any activity in the church.”

“And we don’t really feel we should have workers that we don’t need. That was the idea behind that. It was not deportation; we were paying non-essential workers and the church was not operating. So, we said, we don’t need anyone here.”

“You can go back to your country. The person you claim to train under is no more here. These disciples, what did they come to do here? They came to train under TB Joshua, and TB Joshua is not here physically.”

“You came to train under TB Joshua as a disciple. So, the intention of coming to Nigeria was not to take over the church, but to train under him.”

“The church workers confessed the alleged atrocities of the disciples. The departure of the leaders is a relief to many who had suffered under their yoke.”

“My dad had always put his family as trustees of the church. I am not surprised; this is expected. The church will soon resume; these ones are the bad eggs.”
