Synagogue’s Hate Statement on The Nation’s Reporter

When a building belonging to the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) collapsed last month, The Nation’s Precious Igbonwelundu was one of the first set of reporters to get to the site. For days after the collapse, she was at the site to get on-the-spot reports. This did not go down with the church. In a statement by the church but credited to a so-called freelance journalist John Haward, Igbowelundu was identified as the arrowhead of the media opposition against the church. A group photogragh in which the reporter appeared at the site was used to illustrate the hate statement, as if to draw attention of the church’s members to her for possible attack. Below is the hate statement strictly in context: 
T. B. Joshua has been predicting a lot of accurate prophecies regarding world events, politics, to mention but a few, from the SCOAN Nigeria and broadcasted on Emmanuel.TV that has all come to pass. This has raised questions such “If they can run around prophesying about world events elsewhere, how dare they fail to see that their own buildings were collapsing right in front of them?” referring to TB Joshua.
The fact is TB Joshua on the Sunday 31st August 2014 said a “Big shot” would be attacked in Nigeria which would spark up political crises. “Big shot” to me is a prominent person and we all know TB Joshua is prominent person in Nigeria and all over the world, though some may disagree. We also know that for him not to cause panic he does not mention certain Countries or names in his prophecies, however, what he might have prophesied about has come to pass, that is, cornering the collapsed building and matter arising.
Some individuals and some Engineers have suggested that the addition of extra floors on top of the existing building for foreign followers of the church overloaded the structure, causing the fatal collapse. The fact is that, the building was designed to be a 10 storey building and NOT 3 floors as some reporters have published.
“NEMA” claimed they were NOT allowing them access onto the site to carry out evacuation and that the church argued with them for hours before allowing them to offer help. NEMA actually arrived on the site after 3 hours of the tragic incident and wanted to start climbing the collapsed building to start evacuation so the SCOAN staff refused them explaining that “we know where people may be in the building at the time it collapsed, so now that you are here with your equipment, let’s make holes in the beams. 1. it would allow air to go in and 2. People trapped inside can crawl out from the hole” It took over 1 hour for NEMA to agree that there is sense in what they were saying” At this point the staff and NEMA started drilling holes in the beams. A structural engineer on site said “it’s unusual for such a building to collapse like this” so I asked why did you say so? His reply was “the strength of the concrete is above standard and the correct size irons were used” Please note many others have told me the same.
To confirm that the pillars and the decking was above standard in strength, Lagos State Material Testing Laboratory team were there to test the quality and the strength of several pillars the decking and found them all to be satisfactory. They also tested the soil which was also found to be satisfactory. One could tell their anger when they could NOT find anything to incriminate TB Joshua with. They move into the main Church auditorium to test over 120 other pillars which they also found to be satisfactory.
What one finds very distressing and intriguing is the fact that many of TB Joshua’s critics intentionally overlooked the appearance of the strange jet that hovered over the building on 4 occasions before it collapsed. In their analysis of this tragedy and rather than call for investigation as to what this fighter jet was doing around the building four times and how it got there and who was manning it, they are busy clamoring for the arrest of TB Joshua. The Nigerian Air Force, need to explain where their missing Jet was that morning. It was after the SCOAN televised the CCTV footage of the incident, the Nigerian Air Force came out to say their Jet had disappeared that Friday morning. This clearly makes them number one suspect therefore must be made to answer some questions.
Nigerian Press
The role of a journalist is to disseminate information correctly and not to peddle falsehood. A lady journalist by the name Precious from the “Nations News Paper” was at the scene for 6 days instigating other press men to publish stories against SCOAN and have succeeded in doing so. Her mission is to embarrass Prophet TB Joshua, discourage people from coming to see him, end his ministry and silence him forever but all will come to naught. NO ONE FIGHTS GODS ANOINTED AND WINS; NO ONE.
“It is very sad that inaccurate reports are coming from some quarters that SCOAN are not cooperating with the rescue teams and other agencies in collating information and providing assistance on the incident. In my interview with SCOAN personnel categorically state that the church has provided assistance when and where required and continues to do so – good Christians are good citizens.”
The church views this tragedy as part of an attack on The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations and in particular, Prophet T.B. Joshua. In due course, God will reveal the perpetrators of this unfortunate tragedy, they said.
Nigerian Air Force
The Alpha jet belonging NAF went missing on Friday 12th Sept, 2014 while on an operation against insurgents in Adamawa State in north-eastern Nigeria, the day of the incident at SCOAN. Why, was it NOT reported the same day?
Amosu told journalists after briefing Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan on the missing jet on Monday 15th Sept, 2014, 3 days after the incident in Abuja that the two crew members might still be alive since an ejection was contemplated.
“One of our Alpha Jets went on routine operation in the north-east. On its return, the pilots lost contact with the control towers and that made us to immediately initiate a search.
It was when the CCTV footage of the incident was released on Sunday, 14th, Sept, 2014, NAF decided to make a report to cover their tracks.
