Fresh information available to societynowng.com revealed, embattled ministry head – Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua just perfected a humane but very strategic move.
He has started picking the medical bills of some of the victims of the collapsed 6 Storey building at his place of worship, Synagogue Church of All Nations, Ikotun Egbe Lagos.
But this development comes with a caveat – Prophet Joshua and his ministry only pays for or offsets expenses with receipts.
Findings revealed the celebrated ‘preacher’ and ‘healer’ is perfecting this development via his aides.
Confirmed a source close to one of the victims ‘ they now pay my friend’s bills…but they insist on collecting receipts..and not only him, others he made friends with at the hospital in the same situation as well’
The ‘friend’ is one of the several that were dug out of the collapsed 6 storey synagogue building that witnessed the death of many.
It is however yet to be confirmed if the ‘payment’ of the hospital bills of surviving victims by Prophet T.B Joshua and his ministry is selective – general and across board.
This move however comes ahead of possible appearance by the internationally recognised gospeller at probe panel set up by the Lagos State Government to understand the circumstances surrounding the tragic event.
Prophet Joshua continues to dodge invitations issued by the panel formally known as the Coroner Inquest.
But attempts to secure legal backing for evasive tactics, via a third party court case to stop the panel from inviting him turned futile.
The judge threw out the case for lack of merit.
Though he continues to lobby underground to avoid appearance, it is believed the payment of victims hospital bills and collection of receipts is form of ground work for shore up ‘public standing’ for possible showing up.
His refusal and antics at defying invitation, even in the face of threats of arrest by panel chairman has attracted too much public attention.
Here are a couple of links for background on the unfolding drama- and especially why Prophet T.B Joshua is keen to avoid appearance at the Probe Panel.
