EFCC Invites SCOAN Disciples For Alleged Looting Of T.B Joshua's Money Vault. by BeeBeeOoh(m): 7:48am On Sep 13
...SCOAN names Evelyn new leader, evicts disciples from church’s lodge

There are indications that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) may have invited 20 disciples of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) for questioning over alleged financial fraud and diversion of funds left by the late founder of SCOAN, Temitope Balogun Joshua.

The invitees include Nigerian and foreign prophets and prophetesses of the church.

According to the letter of invitation sighted by The Guardian, yesterday, the church is expected to release them to report for an interview through the Special Investigation Team (STI).

The letter signed by EFCC’s Lagos State Zonal Commander, Ahmed Ghali, said the disciples are being investigated for allegedly syphoning funds and breaking of the church’s vault.

Those expected to resume at the office of the Commission today (Monday morning) are, Obasa Damilola Tinuola, Obasa Folake, Mosun Adeloju, Yakubu Abeni, Omoitoh Omoye, Adebola Olamide Morenike, Bousso Racine, Eugune Rademeyer, Cindy Elizabeth Widjaja, Fanny Elma Alfred, Angela Marie Brandt, Graham Nadine, Tonge Christopher, Catherine Ann Farr, Enrique Miguel, Olayinka Deborah Egbejobi, Mari-Anne Uchechi Ibe, David Omojevbe Joseph, Tonge Ruth, Polo Sandoval Allison.

A source, who spoke in confidence with The Guardian yesterday, said the invitees include prophets from Nigeria, Mexico, South Africa, Senegal, who had been in close contact with the deceased prophet, are alleged to have emptied a vault of money located in the church since the passing of T.B Joshua, and also put up his private aircraft for sale.

“They have carried out huge fraud that has made many of them multi-millionaires since Baba’s death. Many of them are on the list of EFCC. They are up to 20. They seized the church immediately after the Prophet died in June and didn’t want his wife, Mrs. Evelyn Joshua, to be part of the church. They have made themself Overseers. They have established a governing council with some living in the prayer mountains. They went to the vault at night and used a Ghana-Must-Go bag to loot money. They also went to open the Emmanuel global network where they asked international partners to donate without the knowledge of Evelyn,” the source said.

The source revealed that contact information on four of the late T.B Joshua’s mobile phones was wiped off weeks after his death.

“T.B Joshua’s phones were seized by some disciples for some time and when Mama was asking for his phones and it became an issue they returned the phones to Evelyn and wiped out both the memory and contacts in the phone. They had worked with Baba over the years and they are Prophet and Prophetess and people who travelled a lot with Baba before his death. Some of them are 50 years of age and some were asked to go in the past. ”
MEANWHILE, the church has officially named the wife of the late T.B Joshua’s wife, Evelyn, as the new leader.

In a statement on its verified Facebook page, SCOAN said all church activities would be under the guidance of God and the leadership of Mrs. Evelyn.

It also urged members and followers to pray for Mrs. Evelyn as she takes on her new role.

“We urge you all to join us in prayers as we wish for God’s guidance and divine wisdom in her new God-ordained role. Mrs. Evelyn Joshua will shortly address the teeming members of The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV Partners who have waited so long for this new phase in the Great Commission,” the statement added.

Recall that there have been reports of the leadership tussle in the church following the death of TB Joshua. The alleged tussle had led to the eviction of some disciples of the late prophet from the church premises.

Following the forceful eviction of some disciples residing in the church at the weekend after Mrs. Evelyn was announced Chairperson, Board Of Trustee ( BOT), the church has said it was in the process to secure major assets of the church and for a comprehensive audit.

It was gathered that the leadership tussle began when concerned members of the church moved for Evelyn to be among the BOT, which was formerly occupied by T.B Joshua, his daughter, Promise, and a disciple, Joseph David.
A Federal High Court, Lagos has already appointed Mrs. Evelyn as a trustee of SCOAN based on a petition brought by concerned members of the church, represented by Mr. Kola Kareem and Mrs. Moji Oguntoyinbo against the Incorporated Trustees of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).

Justice Tijjani Ringim gave judgment in suit No: FHC/L/CP/1109/2021.

Also, a statement signed by a lawyer from the legal department of the church on Sunday, James Akhigbe, said there were no arrests and detention of some disciples by the newly appointed SCOAN Board of Trustees (BOT) Chairperson and leader of the church, Mrs. Evelyn. He appealed to the public and friends of the church to discountenance reports of alleged victimisation as it is a narrative conjured to discredit the church.

It means that they are not called by God, rather, it was their pockets that called them. Hope this is not going to be the beginning of the fall of this great ministry that tb Joshua laboured for years to build.

Just imagine this level of criminality inside church? For them to have seized the late prophet's phone and wipe off his contacts is tantamount to fraudulent activity....

Most of our Nigeria's god of men were never called by God, they called themselves by their selves and for their pockets.

If at all true, Late T. B Joshua was called by God, the call wasn't for his wife. Why let her lead a church without unction from above?
A church is not a property that should be handed over to the next of kin in the demise of the founder.

About the suspected prophets, thorough investigation should be made and the thieves should be handed over to the authorities for proper punishment. And of course the church should gather to course them and their generations.

God bless SCOAN, may She wax stronger

99% of ALL humans are living a fake life, you all pretend, play roles, act, deceive ... I am guilty as well, but I am conscious and actively fighting the need to be deceptive

Imagine a church is being pillaged by it's body? It speaks volumes of religion generally where you only try to look religions but the devil is scared of you not because of Christ in you but because of how you have surpassed him in your deceit and wickedness.

A whole lot of you will act surprised and disgusted by the news but you are worst!

I say my mind, you can take it however you like.

MONEY is GOD.
As if I knew that the whole brouhaha was about money.
T.B joshua kuku no dey declare Im net worth before. So no one knows just how much he commands monetarily.
It will be sad if the whole legacy of SCOAN is mud by financial defaults.
I hope this woman knows what she is doing.
