There were rumors that some church leaders of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) had spent monies belonging to the church and this has sparked reactions among individuals in society and on social media.
The top leaders of the church have however revealed that they’ve subjected the leaders who are said to be involved in the siphoning of funds under scrutinization.
James Akhigbe, the Head of SCOAN Legal Department has issued a statement clearing the air that indeed some leaders of the church have been fingered to have spent the church’s money and they’re being investigated.
According to the statement, they discovered this afternoon the death of the founder and leader, Prophet TB Joshua, who was known in real life as Temitope Balogun Joshua, and legal actions are being taken.
The statement below…
“We stand in the light and we cannot compromise the ideal and legacy of our mentor and founder, late Senior Prophet TB Joshua on integrity, spiritual worship, unconditional love and humanitarianism.
“The public would recall that on the 9th of September, 2021, the Board Of Trustees BOT of the SCOAN appointed Mrs. Evelyn TBJoshua as its Chairperson.
“This followed an order of the Federal High Court in Suit No. FHC/L/CP/1109/2021 which appointed Mrs. Evelyn T.B Joshua as a Trustee. The BOT had also appointed Mrs. TB Joshua as the new leader of the church with ratification by over two thousand strong jubilant congregations of the Church at a meeting on Thursday afternoon,” the statement read.
“Following this, and in view of the discovery of huge cases of financial misappropriation perpetrated in the past few months, reckless individualism and unimaginable acts grossly antipodal to the Sanctuary with the passing of the founder, the church leadership took steps to secure certain critical assets of the Church with an authorization for a comprehensive audit of the activities of the Church since the call to glory of our Founder and General Overseer in the interest of the global church members and future of the Church.
“This exercise involved some category of church workers including Disciples and it is being carried out objectively under a regular and absolutely normal environment without any harassment whatsoever to any person or group of persons, contrary to the disingenuous narrative now being peddled by mischief makers.”
