4 YEARS ON… When Will The SCOAN Victims Get Justice?

4 YEARS ON… When Will The SCOAN Victims Get Justice?

4 YEARS ON… When Will The SCOAN Victims Get Justice?




Exactly 3 month after Fatai Balogun alias T.B. Joshua celebrated his birthday on 12th of June, 2014, 4 years ago today, over 115 gullible, vulnerable and naive people from different countries and other undocumented Nigerians who visited The  Synagogue ‘Church’ of all Nations, Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos, Nigeria in desperate need of succour, healing and encounter with God died violently when a building suddenly collapsed completely to the ground on top of them. Countless others got life changing injuries, some can never use their legs to walk again after the gruesome experience and others can never use their arms to embrace their loved ones again. Though, that incident was not new in the demonic Synagogue of T.B. Joshua, insiders in the Synagogue know very much how occasional incident like this had taken lives of people in gruesome manner, but the 12th September, 2014 incident could not be covered up like others, and it has entered into the record of Wilkipedia for generations unborn to read and be wiser. If any of the victims were member of your household or your family breadwinner, what would you do?


After much denial, in July 2015, the coroner released his report – proving that the building that collapsed was inevitable due to a litany of serious structural failings, for example:

1) Inadequate beams of 750mm by 225mm (should have been 900mm by 300mm)

scoan collapsed
2) Inadequately reinforced columns (should have been reinforced with 12 x Y25 bars or 20 x Y20mm bars. Instead they used 10 x Y20 bars (as seen in the video released by SCOAN).
3) Inadequate bearing pressure for the central column due to the 2m x 2m x 0.9m foundations.

Unbraced Structure with intention to kill People

4) Failure to introduce rigid zones for bracing the structure and did not design the frames as an unbraced structure.
5) Failure to provide movement joints that could have absorbed any movement due to creep, contraction, expansion and differential settlement etc..
6) 8 out of the 12 main beams of the structure failed because they were undersized, under-reinforced (both in tension and shear), the tension bars were poorly anchored to the column supports and 8 x Y20 was used instead of 14 x Y20.
7) The ground floor columns were slender and readily gave in to buckling.
The coroner Oyetade Komolafe ruled that SCOAN were criminally negligent, and should be investigated and prosecuted, “The ‘church’ was culpable because of criminal negligence resulting in the death of the victims” (Source: BBC).

In April 2016, after many attempts by SCOAN to disrupt or stall the court proceedings, charges were finally read. The charges are “failure to obtain building approval contrary to Section 75 of the Urban and Regional Planning Law of Lagos State 2010 and involuntary manslaughter causing death contrary to Section 222 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011“. In June 2016, the trial started, but after a couple of days it went silent without conclusion. SCOAN have not been cleared of the charges, but nor have they been found guilty – the whole case has gone silent.

Where is the justice for the many families who have lost loved ones, or those whose lives will never be the same again due to their horrific injuries? We belief Lagos State Government can do better than this – by showing authority, exhibiting passion to defend the defenseless, and bring this case to a tangible conclusion. Even if you are a SCOAN supporter, surely you can agree with us that it is not in SCOAN’s favor to have this unconcluded criminal investigation over their head? Reports show that visitors to SCOAN has reduced by up to 90%. Either SCOAN is guilty and should face the consequences of their lethal actions, or they should have their name cleared. This limbo situation is in nobodies favor (except SCOAN, if they know they are guilty).

 What more could prove that this charlatan, con-artist called T.B. Joshua has become an embarrassment to Nigeria, and he is a dangerous false prophet than him not been able to see the collapse of his own building which killed over 115 gullible foreigners. He is always very quick to put out over edited videos and Photoshop pictures, purporting to have predicted many disaster happening around the world to look relevant, but right in his compound he could not predict to avert those that add up to the number of people that perished in his own house. You will see that T.B. Joshua is a psychopath with zero empathy for the victims of tragedies as he releases fulfillment of false videos to corroborates lies with edited videos.


Now, read this: This is neither an allegation, nor speculation. As someone who once lived in the Synagogue for over a decade, and worked in various departments in leadership capacity closely to the direct source (T.B. Joshua), I know some deeper things about T. B. Joshua and his Synagogue. There are two major reasons that points to the collapsed of the Synagogue, I can not be wrong on both ways.

  • 1. Fatai Balogun alias T.B. Joshua, a con-artist, occult grand-master, Islamic Mualim used the people for spiritual sacrifice with the aim to gain more devilish power in the evil realm. He has been doing it before now where people mysteriously dies in the Synagogue; workers die, members die, his ‘disciples’ dies and they are smuggled out of the Synagogue to be buried secretly, but the incident of 12th September, 2014 was too huge to be covered by T. B. Joshua and his agents. Since the time I left the Synagogue in February 8th, 2008, for over 6 years later to 2014, Joshua had not been able to travel outside the shores of Nigeria for his usual scam crusades; but shortly after the collapsed, T. B. Joshua went to Mexico to display falsehood, this is not side talk, anyone can check the record on Google.
    Never in the history of the Church of the living God has the Children of God suffer such disaster in the hands of a satanic agent like T.B. Joshua. The more reason people should know their Creator and serve Him devotedly without running to any prayer arrangers, especially places like the Synagogue ‘church’. The Synagogue is not a Church of Jesus Christ, and T.B. Joshua is not a Christian. You can never tell when T.B. Joshua’s demons wants to strike to drink Blood and unleash mayhem on the innocents. No one knows the days they are thirsty for human blood, it can be in the least expected time even aside animal sacrifices which T.B. Joshua carried out periodically to share for people to eat, I have witnessed how people died suddenly and their deaths were covered up in terrifying secrecy inside the Synagogue. We are not here to magnify satan, but it is an open secret in the Synagogue that T.B. Joshua has demons, disembodied spirits at his beck and call, which he sends on errands to affects and wreck havocs in the lives of those who are not standing firm in the Lord. Our Lord said if it were possible, even the very elect, satan want to pluck them MATTHEW 24:24.  We should know that life is a battle-ground, we shall all engage in one battle or another. In this battle of life, some shall be devoured, and there are some that cannot be devoured. DANIEL 11:32-33 says, “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. 33And those of the people who understand shall instruct many; yet for many days they shall fall by sword and flame, by captivity and plundering.” I appeal to the people of God to stop living carelessly in carnality, the food of satan is dust, if you don’t live in the Spirit, you may become food for satan. Anyone who lives in the flesh (dust) is a candidate to be devoured by the devil and its agents 1PETER 5:8. God does not shift base; we are the ones that experiences God in dimensions, this is the reason the Scripture enjoins us to “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you” JAMES 4:8.

Now, Joshua has done his evil work, the dead are gone and he belief that the whole noise of prosecuting him by the government of Nigeria would soon die down. He always boosts that whenever things of this nature happens to him, it is for a higher height and promotion. The question is: must T.B. Joshua continue to kill for more evil power at the detriment of the innocents? We pray that this will not continue; every individual who thinks they are untouchable even in the extreme instances of causing pain, calamity, and so many deaths shall face reprisal from God. T.B. Joshua belongs to different occult society with some top Nigerian government officials who returns favor to each other in time of trouble, but God will expose you all.

  • 2. I know how T.B. Joshua reasons in regards to building structures in the Synagogue. T.B. Joshua is a desperado who is trying to buy as much land that is adjacent to the Synagogue area because in figment of his mind, he want to overrun  churches like The Redeemed Christian Church of God, and the Living Faith Church. So he use people to front for him to buy various lands around the Synagogue environs, because the land owners would not sell their properties directly to him because they know who he truly is, and after buying such land through agents, he will quickly build ramshackle structures on them in the name of expansion without government approval or building expert. These can be corroborated by some ‘ex disciples’ who have gained their sanity back after leaving the dungeon called the Synagogue. People like Paul Agomoh, Linda, Kazeem, Lola, Bisola (myself), Ogra, Falusi, Baba Amala and many other people that I cannot remember their names now are the ‘Job men’ which T.B. Joshua would use to supervise laborers. The people aforementioned know nothing about building constructions. I was a banker before I got to the Synagogue, Baba Amala was a printer, Linda was a beautician, Ogra was an artist, Lola was a teacher, Paul was into Publishing/song writing, and others as well were into various trades, but we were converted to builders without any fundamental training.  (Excerpts from ‘THE T.B. JOSHUA I KNOW…Deception Of The Age Unmasked’)

We need to keep the families of the departed in our prayers to be strong, and continue to use this sad occurrence as deterrents to others who are in habits of looking for spiritual arrangers and false prophets. What you make happen for others, God will make happen for you. Let’s share this until it get to the attention of relevant authorities.

May the dead rest in peace!

(Culled from the Book “THE T.B. JOSHUA I KNOW”)

In the first introduction of the Church, the Scripture made us to understand that The Lord Jesus Christ did not took stripes on His back, wore a Crown of Thorns on His head, got His side pierced and died on the Cross for what many professed Church goers are seeking for today; rather The Son of God died on the Cross to liberate man from the power of Sin.

ACTS 2:37-39 “When they heard this, they were stung in the heart and said to Peter and to the rest of the Apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” 38Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39For the promise is to you, and to your children, and to all who are far away, as many as the Lord our God will call.”

This simply means, Man’s problem is not about the expensive clothes he has or does not have in his closet, not the kind of car he drives or the house he lives in, man’s problem is Sin, and he need a Saviour and that Saviour is Jesus Christ. When there is no reaffirmation of the transaction Jesus Christ did on Calvary in our Churches, people will be shortchanged of the Truth and pimps will take over the platform. There are different pimps in our Churches today: Pimps of miracles, prophecies, prosperity, turning the house of God into house of merchandise; as they trades in water, oil, apron, etceteras. We don’t need anymore Pimps or snake oil salesmen leading the Church, it is purely Spiritual adulatory, we need genuine ministers who will stand behind the Pulpit and preach the undiluted Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Synagogue of T.B. Joshua in Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos, Nigeria is another hellish place where every genuine Christian must avoid altogether. The Synagogue is a house of Pimps, headed by T.B. Joshua. 




Another amazing deception I witnessed at the Synagogue was a 76-year-old Moses Marole, who came from Mmabatho, he travelled to Lagos from South Africa in the company of other 120 guests led by a regular group leader Mrs. Santa du Plessis, from Roodeport. Mrs. Santa du Plessis had become part of T.B. Joshua’s clique when money started flowing into her purse through this arrangement, she is a mother of one of T.B. Joshua’s in-house ‘disciples’ called Angelique Goosen. On April 21, Sunday afternoon, while the group took some time off from the long hour of Sunday service to have lunch, Moses Marole suddenly collapsed on the food table. Many people rallied around to help him: amongst them was a neurosurgeon, Dr. Johan Wilkinson from Bloemfontein; he performed a CPR on Moses to no avail. In no long time, message had reached T.B. Joshua in the service where he was still attending to people on the so-called ‘prayer line’. T.B. Joshua sent Benson, one of the junior prophet to ‘pray’ but without success as usual.


The elderly man was taken aside, and the Synagogue medical team who are always on standby during services engaged the fainted old man, and were able to bring him back to life with their medical skill.


Synagogue in-house Medical Team helping

The medical team discovered that the complications of heat (hot weather in Nigeria), triggered Marole’s health conditions, which were: diabetes, high blood pressure and stress of an old age. The medical team brought him back to life, not the junior prophet. When T.B. Joshua heard that the man had been resuscitated, he said we must keep the visitors in the dark on the new development; and keep telling them that the elderly man could not be resuscitated; even ‘disciples’ were lying to their fellow ‘disciples’ on the matter. Separate room was quickly made available to keep Moses away from the rest of his group members, and one of the medical team, a Nurse, Mrs. Igeodu who always work hand in hand with the ‘disciples’ of T.B. Joshua was called in but none of the ‘disciples’ knew T.B. Joshua’s intention until after the day’s service. After everyone had eaten and rested, at about 11pm, T.B. Joshua summoned selected members of the Studio: two cameramen, two video editors, and two visitors’ coordinators; those that are very loyal, with Mrs. Igeodu, the Nurse into his office. The short meeting was about the fainted man; and since every member of the foreign visitors still holds the belief that the man was already dead, this time was ripe opportunity for him (T.B. Joshua) to do what he had dreamt of doing a very long time, to raise the dead like Jesus Christ did, but the pattern he planned to use was that of Elisha in 2KINGS 4:33-34.

 Mrs. Igeodu administered sedative injection on the already fragile man in bad condition of health to keep him still on the bed, wool was inserted into his windpipes, and he was laid straight as a dead man on the bed. Everyone knew exactly what he or she must do after the short meeting with T.B. Joshua. Other ‘disciples’ who were not involved in the brief might be seeing your movement, but they cannot decode or understand what was going on except the smart ones who had been involved in a similar errand before. The Cameramen had set up their gadgets in the room where the aged man was laid, and T.B. Joshua was led into the room by a ‘disciple’ who pretended as if she was just passing the information to him. It was a drama.

NARRATION: –T.B. Joshua touched the man on the bed to see if he had slept off, of course, there can never be any response, thanks to Mrs. Igeodu’s sedative injection. So, T.B. Joshua raised his hand up in the air in front of cameras as if ‘praying’, there were lots of mistakes which was taken care of by Seun Abiola, one of the editors in the Studio. T.B. Joshua practices on the camera cassette were wiped off through reuse of the cassette by Sister Deola. Then T.B. Joshua laid flat on the man for some seconds and stood up; that was his own part.


Joshua the Pimp in his act of deception

Then, we have to be on standby until the man wakes up from the effect of the sedation. With the Voice of T.B. Joshua inserted, the real voice used was Brother Nkechi who shouted the man’s name severally before the man suddenly jacked out from his deep sleep, as he opened his eyes and mouth to answer the caller; that was the reaction the Editor needed to finalize the deceptive packaging, Shina and I were called upon to-do voice over to perfect all gaps of unnecessary noise on the tape.

 This video cassette was sold all over the world, and it went viral on YouTube to deceive the naive. The following morning, T.B. Joshua instructed us to play the edited video to the foreign visitors in their dining room. We assembled the entire guests in the dining room, they were looking gloomy as we told them the cock and bull story of the previous day event. It was basically about one of them who had gone to be with the ‘Lord’, they all answered affirmative. They were still in mourning mood; their breakfast was left untouched. We informed them how we prepared the man for the morgue, but message came from T.B. Joshua that the man’s death was to the ‘glory of T.B. Joshua’s fake god’ (always using biblical quotation to deceive people); that they should not bother to take his body to the morgue. The guests were a little confused and perplexed, asking why we should keep human remains

inside the hostel? The packaged video of lies, and deceit explained the rest as we played it for them. When they saw what happened with tight editing, they rejoiced and demanded to see the resurrected man, many of them started calling South Africa to testify lies. We told them that Moses would still need some rest. The sedative injection administered on him was still in his system, he could not yet coordinate himself. It took another day before we allowed Moses Marole to receive visitors from among his group members, and before then, he had been thoroughly brainwashed on the Synagogue version of what happened to him. If you watch the video, Moses had no testimony at all, he was just rambling, a pure patched interview. Some of the visitors knew that Moses case was not as bad as we presented it in the video, but they went back home pondering over the event in their mind. GOD IS WATCHING!

If T.B. Joshua truly has power to heal or raise the dead, what about many other visitors who died under his roof without been able to raise them to life? The incident of the first story I recounted in this Chapter took place at the adjacent room to where T.B. Joshua slept that fateful day in his bedroom; until I woke T.B. Joshua up from his sleep that morning, he was sleeping next room to a dead man. General Tumenta Martin died under Synagogue roof, a Botswana magistrate, Lorraine Makati-Lesang died inside the Synagogue on their so-called ‘prayer line’, if truly Moses Marole died and was raised to life by T.B. Joshua; what about Benson, his junior pastor who worked for him for more than 20 years and died in T.B. Joshua’s presence without been raised to life? Samson, who was a cousin to him died under his roof; and there were other unreported cases of death amongst the general workers inside the Synagogue. I witnessed on many occasions while T.B. Joshua was doing his so-called jingoism type of ‘prayer’ on the sick, and they died right before him. Tamara, a ‘disciple’ from Austria died in two days after she left the Synagogue, Lagos to Austria. T.B. Joshua could not heal or raise any of these people we mentioned from the dead. Ask yourself… what is the authenticity of the Synagogue blatant editing videos that went viral, what is the authenticity of anything you see on Emmanuel TV? Are they real? Forget about what you watch on television; T.B. Joshua manufactures and arranges miracles. Why is T.B. Joshua having pleasure deceiving people? It is for only one reason, to take your focus away from God’s presence, from holding and waiting upon the Lord ISAIAH 40:29-31. Now, the easy one, T.B. Joshua did not travel when the Synagogue collapsed upon him, what a good opportunity presented before him, and his junior prophets or wise men, to get busy by displaying their prowess of healing those that were wounded and raising the dead to life (sic). Even, two of his choir girls were badly wounded, and were hospitalized, one of them was on crutches for many months, while the other was flown out of the country for treatment; but T.B. Joshua would always present on Emmanuel TV to be healing cripple, healing those with cancer, healing the blind, and paralyzed, why does he allow his precious singer to be using walking aid? On top of it, he lied and dodged been prosecuted by the government. IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP people of God! Emmanuel TV propagates falsehood on daily basis. BE WARNED, BEWARE!

Know that we are in the time of deception spoken of by the Lord Jesus and His Apostles; we are in a highly polluted world where deception thrives from the topmost echelon height to the grassroots of the society. We are in a time when magicians do no longer parade themselves openly the way they used to be known. They do not have the known telltale as it was in the time of old.They don’t do body-art of decorating their bodies with shells and cowries, or rubbing local chalks on their faces to look fearful on the street or in the marketplaces like before. Everything is revolving in our present age and time. Today, satanists, enchanters, necromancers, cultists, now dress in designer’s three-piece suits like you and me. They package themselves in expensive shoes, Giorgio Armani perfume and powerful eyeglasses to look tush. They even carry bigger Bibles these days so that you will not recognize them. Our Lord Jesus Christ warned,“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? 19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20Therefore by their fruits you will know them. 21“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven. 22Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your Name, cast out demons in Your Name, and done many wonders in Your Name?’ 23And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!”MATTHEW 7:15-16, 19-23 NKJV.

 KANU Nwankwo

One should ponder what is T.B. Joshua’s gain in deceiving, destroying, and killing people? The answer is simple ―as an agent of satan, T.B. Joshua need higher ranking in the dark world because they are to kill, steal and destroy for their master to be relevant to him.


“Today, satanists, enchanters, necromancers, cultists, now dress in designer’s three-piece suits like you and me. They package themselves in expensive shoes, Giorgio Armani perfume and powerful eyeglasses to look tush. They even carry bigger Bibles these days so that you will not recognize them.”

This smart football star, Kanu Nwankwo, cheated death by not given heed to the ungodly counsel of T.B. Joshua. Kanu’s younger brother visited the Synagogue ahead of him on one Sunday gathering; we believe he was sent to check how things were on that faithful day. Possibly they had watched the Synagogue fake TV programs, hence, they came; or T.B. Joshua might have sent his underdogs on mission to locate them when he heard in the news about the ailing Kanu, to score cheap points as usual. footballerIn any case, Mr. Nwankwo himself was in the Synagogue the following week, on a Tuesday if I can remember vividly. T.B. Joshua brought him into the studio where I worked as the Synagogue editor/voice over artist to perform enchantment on him. To impress Mr. Nwankwo, it took T.B. Joshua more than 2 hours of shaking his right hand, and leg, and widening his eyes on this field maestro to intimidate him, under the best two camera-men which the Synagogue could boast of at the time (KK and Segun). A brand-new Panasonic HD Camera bought from London was brought out from the store for this occasion, supported by the regular Sony M3500 camera were used. T.B. Joshua desperately wanted Kanu to fall flat on his face as a sensational show. T.B. Joshua engaged the young footballer with all his enchanting antics out of his demonic arsenal, but the tall gangling striker stood his ground before him like the rock of Gibraltar with his eyes wide opened fixed on T.B. Joshua.


Fake healing by Fatai alias T.B. Joshua

After so much effort, and the guy refused to fall down, T.B. Joshua declared Kanu free of his heart problem, but common sense or should I say– destiny guided Mr. Nwankwo to seek a heart specialist for a second opinion. When he did, Aghast! The former prognosis was confirmed.T.B. Joshua was at it again, he lied! Kanu was not healed in the Synagogue as T.B. Joshua declared. Kanu surrendered himself to a heart correctional surgery against the backdrop of T.B. Joshua’s opinion,who continued kicking vigorously against the surgery decision as they wheeled the striker to the Theater. T.B. Joshua placed numerous telephone calls to Kanu on his hospital bed, reaffirming to him that he, T.B. Joshua had healed him. I was there when T.B. Joshua gave up and said on a final note to him, “If that is your manager’s decision, ok, but the doctors would find nothing when they cut you open.” It was pathetic to hear that the doctors found serious issues inside Mr. Kanu’s heart when they opened him up, which they corrected medically.

Of course, God can heal, the scripture said so, and He still heals JEREMIAH 30:17; ISAIAH 53:5; EXODUS 15:26.God heals in His sovereign will,since He created our body fearfully and wonderfully according to GENESIS 1:27; PSALMS 1239:14.He also gave the medical doctors grace and knowledge to treat.The medical profession acknowledged this fact by their motto:GOD HEALS WE CARE. Now, we must be careful on how we go about faith healing, because there are people like T.B. Joshua who carry things to an extreme of showbiz, and God has never intended healing that way.The point I am trying to make here is that T.B. Joshua is not of God, he is a magician, a performer, a conjurer, forecaster, and a sorcerer who has nothing of Jesus Christ, the true healer in him.

Finally, Kanu recuperated from the hospital after his heart’s correctional surgery and returned to the career he loved so much. He never gave a thought for the Synagogue or T.B. Joshua who would have sent him to an early grave. He did more good for himself, his family and the Nation at large. What if he had listened to T.B. Joshua as Ruben Kruger and other gullible did?

“We are in a time when magicians do no longer parade themselves openly the way they used to be known. They do not have the known telltale as it was in the time of old.”

When T.B. Joshua realized how he had lost ample opportunity to be famous through riding on Kanu’s name and achievement; and the medical personnel had stolen his show; T.B. Joshua became frantically desperate to reclaim the lost ground. First, to fan his ego, T.B. Joshua invited some cheap and lay-about journalists who frequently eat crumbs under his table, and released the video tape of him presumably administer healing to Kanu to them (what he knows best to do), blowing tantrum by claiming to have been the one who healed Kanu, stupidity plus illiteracy blinded him so much that he forgot how millions of people all over the world had kept Kanu in their prayers while he was under surgical blade. To drive his point home, T.B. Joshua showed the journalists the photo frame of one funny jesus which he had presented to Kanu as a souvenir and begged the journalists to help him leak and circulate the news to the gullible public. The efforts of circulating the news had no positive impact on the populace. Sensible people knew how Kanu was operated upon to correct his heart malfunction. The soft sell journalists only wasted their time and journalistic intelligence on T.B. Joshua’s cheap destructive fame pursuits.

Today, 8th, February in history marks another unforgettable day that Mercy roared from His Throne to liberate me out of the pangs of death, spiritual and physical incarceration, mental and psychological terror, sexual slavery of Fatai Temitope Balogun alias T.B. Joshua of the synagogue ‘church’ of all nations, Ikotun -Egbe, Lagos, Nigeria.


When God saw it was time for me to leave synagogue; some cameras malfunctioned in a conference organized by Joshua for the farmers in faraway South Africa. When he returned to Nigeria, he summoned a meeting and accused the ‘disciples’ that followed him to the conference including the foreign ‘disciples’ that they caused the fault of the machines. Therefore, we must go to the ‘prayer’ mountain to ask for forgiveness for offending ‘holy spirit’. I was not with them in South Africa; but I was included, my sin was that I did not travel with them. He said if I had gone, such experience would not have occurred. While we were at Agodo, I saw in a quick flash the picture of my mother, very aged and frail; and for the first time in many years I felt concern for her. I summoned courage to ask Joshua for permission to go and see my mother in case something terrible had happened to her. The moment I mentioned my mother to him, it was as if a thunderbolt hit Joshua, he was not expecting it, he became highly upset and asked everybody to clear out of his office including me.
My mind was made up, I waited for Joshua until 12midnight to be able to inform him that come sun, come rain, I would go and see my mother in the morning. He said I could not go, period. Among other things he said was, if I went, something terrible would happen on the way, he also said he would lay a curse on his daughter not me, but I insisted. He asked me why I bent on going on a Sunday when every ‘disciple’ supposed to be busy working, I answered him that it has been a long time I have been home as he know; possibly she might have moved out of where I knew. Nevertheless, I know my mother’s church where she has been attending before she married to my Dad (she has been a Christian but my Dad was a Muslim and I grew up with my Dad). We discussed until 3am in the morning. Joshua started cajoling me that he was about to send me to South Africa to handle somethings for him; but within me, I was not interested in traveling, but to get out of the synagogue. Lastly, Joshua played another card, he asked me to go and prepared to follow him to the marine mountain at that ungodly hour (3am), but I refused. If it were before I would gladly have obliged.
In the morning, while others were dressing up for service, and synagogue members were coming into the service, I ran out. As things worked out, I met Joshua by the stairs coming back from his water mountain at about 6am, though I greeted him, but I do not even bother to know if he answered or not.
On my way out, the security men caught me but I fought them with all my strength within me and flagged down a motorbike which drove me away from synagogue’s frontier. When I got into town, I was just perambulating from one place to another until one Mr. Ojooloye called me on the phone and directed me to the motor park. Eventually I got to my mum’s church, an usher helped me to call her out, and just the way I saw her in my vision in a flash, she had aged so much and became frail. A lots had happened to her, she started crying but I encouraged her to be strong. Then, she started praising God for seeing me again, I went with her to her new place as I expected. We talked at length, I apologized for been used not to see her for many years, and informed her that I was planning to leave synagogue. She asked me, ‘why?’ I told her that only God knows but I was no longer comfortable there, I sensed something was not right. I could not bring myself to tell her all my experiences at the time because I was not ready to hear “but we told you so.”
My mother gave me her pastor’s telephone number to ask for counseling, and I left for Lagos, back to the synagogue. When I got there, the security man (Phillip) would not permit me to enter, he said I needed a written permit from Joshua because I did not present one when I left in the morning. I became pissed off, I told him to allow me to go in, and pack my stuff and leave finally. While we were on that argument, someone informed me that Joshua was at the marine mountain and he asked me to come with her. At the marine mountain, Joshua inquire why I disobeyed his orders not to visit my mother, I had no excuse for him, so he asked me what happened at my mother’s place, I knew he wanted to teleguide me, so I gave him a different story that my mother does not wish to see me again because of the past scenarios. Then, he asked Olamide big to escort me back to the main synagogue and instruct other leaders who he had previously instigated against me to sheath their sword.
‘Disciples’ are not allowed to own a personal phone, but I had secretly bought one for myself at the time I worked in ‘The Exclusive’ Newspaper. I called my mother’s pastor the following morning and he prayed with me, after prayers, he asked me where I was, I told him not to worry that I only needed guidance in a step I wanted to take about leaving where I was. What he said thereafter got me panicked. He said, “oh, I am very sorry for asking, but as we prayed, my eyes opened and I saw that you are in a kind of bondage where there were chains on your neck, both hands, waist and your two legs; I saw that you are tied up like a criminal.”
In shock, I opened up to him that I was in the Synagogue, ‘church’ of all nations. The pastor asked gently, ‘what are you doing there? I told him that it was not a story I could relate to him at the time. “Ah! The way I saw it, you cannot leave o,” he replied. I was confused, with a little irritation, I asked him, “I cannot leave? Why? Was I born here? Nobody owns me but God, and right now I am leaving, no one can stop me, not even those chains you said you saw.”
The pastor shouted, “Please don’t try it, if you try it, your enemy can run mad or die because you are already under surveillance radar. If God open your eyes, you will see that there are some horrible looking beings that are manning the gate of where you are; it is not only you, they have the list of the names of those people living there with them.” Ha! as if it was a bad dream to me, I thought within me, is it this bad? I definitely knew some strange things are happening here, but not to this magnitude? I looked around I could not see any strange looking beings, no surveillance radar except security monitors which I know off. In a jiffy, my experience of 7 years backward flashed in my mind, when I left synagogue with strong head, and I ended up roaming the street of Lagos for 3days not knowing where I was heading to (another story). Therefore, I calmed down, almost crying and in a childlike voice, which I could not believe was mine I said, “Sir, am I going to die here? Can God help me? I want to go to heaven.”
The pastor assured me that God is ready to help anyone who call on Him because He owns everywhere and everyone, but I must give my life to Christ genuinely, and walk with God. How, I asked him? He said, “we shall be praying together often for God’s direction, and anytime you finished service in the synagogue, it is paramount that you call me for prayers.” I thanked him and we bade each other goodbye.
We prayed together on the phone for 3 months, he did not at any time compelled or cajole me to become his member, or to send offerings to his Bank account. During the time we were praying, the pastor informed me several things related to the way we lived in the synagogue, it was as if he was living there with us. One time, he asked me if we do eat together as group because he saw something been given to the people living there to eat in form of food but not food, I said yes; he advised me to stop partaken. Therefore, each time we have eating together, which has become rampant at the time; I would collect my portion and flushed it or dashed it out to some longer-throat people. In addition, I became an audience instead of been member of the acting group, I hated every second I stayed back there.
On the last lap, I asked the pastor which portion of the Bible I should be reading on my own, he told me something profound which I can never forget in a light year. He said, “don’t worry yet, because where you are Heaven is not open.” I thought over those words repeatedly. I stopped going to see or greet Joshua except he calls for me. I became deadened towards anything about synagogue and Joshua. I could not stand him as my eyes of understanding opened to the Truth. The pastor gave me a 3-day fast exercise. It will shock anyone to hear that, the very day I started the fast was the day Joshua sent Kemi and another boy in the kitchen with Bose to Shoprite. He gave them enough money to buy foodstuff ingredient as we used to like it, to cook delicious meal only for his favorite girls. Instead of eating with them, I collected mine and flushed it.
On the last day of the fast, Joshua called few girls into his office and ask us to eat with him, while I was standing at the back not knowing what to do, I faked a vomit, he quickly do his so called ‘prayer’ for me, and asked someone to lead me to my bedroom. I was never known to be a sicklier throughout my stayed at the synagogue, I was only sick, and stayed in bed one time in year 2000, but this time, I always pretend to be sick in other to stay away from all of them. When finally, I finished my fast on January 31, 2008, the pastor said I was free to leave synagogue on my own terms. He said he saw a mighty angel descended from Heaven with a long heavy chain in his hand, which he used to tie all those demonic beings standing guard at the synagogue’s gate, who are dangerous for anyone to pass through them.
The big question on my mind then was how would it happen; I knew I was free in my spirit, and in my mind; but how would I approach Joshua? One day, I signed a permit from him to go out to Oshodi with someone to buy new clothes, but before the person woke up, I intentionally took off, and I went to one Prince Awofisayo’s office to finalize my discussions with him over my leaving synagogue, but unfortunately or fortunately, a known face (Baba Ikare) saw me there and reported to Joshua. It was like when Doeg, reported spotting David with Ahimelech to king Saul 1SAMUEL 21.
When I got back, Joshua’s office was expectedly locked up, I knew by then he would have been discussing with his top level ‘disciples’ what I had done and he would also be consulting his magical powers to know what had gone wrong. I did not bother to go back to him; I only went to the general cafeteria to take cup of coffee and return to my room.
The following day was a Sunday; I refused to participate in their running around and deceptive service. I stayed in my bed until the time I needed to go to the general cafeteria to eat. As I descended from the stairs, I saw Joshua and his drama team at the cancer section, when he sighted me, he was transfixed on me as if he saw a ghost for some seconds and I looked directly into his eyes without blinking or shaking. I went back to bed after meal. Then he sent Kemi to me in the room to come out to emergency line to be ‘prayed’ for, since I have been complaining to be sick. After a lot of persuasion from Kemi, I went with her and return to the room. They brought me food, which I flushed through the toilet.
The following day was a Monday, a day which departmental heads and other ‘disciples’ in different department usually go to his office early, to greet him and to sign papers for weekly assignment. When I got there I was practically blocked from entering into his office by Olamide small; I knew she was acting on instruction. This was the same Olamide which Joshua used to snitch on me and stole my handset from my bed when I went to shower, and they deleted all the contacts on the phone. Anyway, that morning, l needed to create some distractions, which will enable me to be seen and be heard by Joshua, that I need to leave synagogue. It is part of synagogue culture if Joshua knew your intention to leave, he can avoid you through his human shield. When David Tonge discovered how Joshua has been having sex with his wife, Angie; they both came from England to confront him in Lagos, but Joshua avoided his two junior prophets for more than two weeks, and did not allow them to leave synagogue premises through his human machineries. Anyway, that day, I thought to myself, I have paid my dues in this place; I have been around for too long to be treated like a non-entity. I tried to enter again, Olamide blocked me and I descended a hot slap on her, Joshua heard the commotion from his office and came out to ask what happened. Before Olamide could open her mouth, I started reporting her that she was constituting nuisance in the office. Immediately, Joshua walked her out to be punished.
The office door became widely opened to all, and all the people that were waiting outside went into Joshua’s presence. When it was my turn to speak to him, I told him “I need a permit to go to Cotonou” (certain boldness entered into me, which I feared myself); he looked up, Cotonou again? ‘To do what,’ He asked. I said, ‘to see my older sister’ then he asked every other person to leave his office immediately, except me and he closed the door behind them. When it remains him and me, Joshua stood up from his chair, and gave me a big false serpentine smile. He stretched his hand to hug me, I knew that stunt as I knew my name; and I moved backward. He paused, stared at me intently for few seconds, and asked me to go and invite my mother. He gave me 10,000 naira and asked if it was enough for me, I answered affirmative and left.
I did not return to the synagogue until the following day. When I entered his office, he asked why I did not return the previous day, I just gave him a lame excuse that my mother was not at home, and I needed to wait for her. He said I should go and give her food, but while I was downstairs doing that, he suddenly had a change of mind and asked me to bring my mother upstairs to his office.
At this time, I have started weighing his word before acting; I had realized tbJoshua cannot be trusted. I loiter a while outside his office, so I noticed some unusual movement of KK and ‘Deola. KK is the head of Camera Crew, we both work together since I was the head of the Studio and ‘Deola had rose to become the head of another part of the Studio called ‘recordings and previewing department’ as the Studio expands. Seeing this two people in the office tell me volume as an insider. Whenever visitors come to the synagogue, Joshua uses these two people to record the visitors secretly, and on this very day there was no visitor around. What is Joshua up to this time? I zeroed it on my mum. I became very upset. I went downstairs to tell my mother not to leave where she was sitting, no matter who called her. I called her son to come and watch over her while I went upstairs to the room (girl’s dormitory) to park my stuff. While I was parking, tbjoshua sent different people to call me into his office and each time they came, I told them I was not coming. After a while, I heard some rowdiness in the room, people were been chased out; I did not even bother to check what was happening, I only concentrated on what I was doing. Tbjoshua himself came into our room and met me by the bed. He asked why I refused to answer him, I told him I was busy parking my stuff as he could see (this was serious), so he raised his hand to hit me, but rather, he hit the pillar by my head and his hand started bleeding. He withdrew from me and went out quietly. When I finished parking my bags I slept off because I have been crying, I was drained physically. The following morning, I went to see my mum so that we could go.
What would have happened the previous night if we had played into Joshua’s hand; already Kk and Deola had gone upstairs inside tbjoshua’s kitchen where they usually setup hiding cameras and tape recorder. The show would have begun this way: My mum comes into tbjoshua presence; Joshua will do what he does to transfer evil spirit into my mum. If her spirit accepts it, she would have confessed to witchcraft, and explained how she wanted to destroy me and wanted me to leave ‘God’s’ presence (synagogue). At the end, I would have a change of mind of leaving synagogue, thinking it was my mum manipulation to make me leave synagogue. I would have a rethink of not to leave, but my punishment of all I had made Joshua to pass through will be postponed to another day. Thank God, it was not as the enemy planned.
In the morning of 8th February 2008, I believe with the current events, it was already dawned on each party that we were done with each other. While I took my mum to the general canteen to have her breakfast, Chikwodi, one of the ‘disciples’ who work inside Joshua’s chalet rushed to us that Joshua would like to see us. We met him on the gallery, He was telling my mum how he had taken me to different countries because he loved me, he did not mention how much I worked hard for him because I thought he was a servant of God. He did not mention how much I sacrificed for his lies (synagogue); and the fantasy Island he built in the lives of many through our efforts. He did not tell her how he held me captive spiritually against my will, under spell for many years, which I would have done myself good outside the gate of the synagogue. Anyway, I requested for my International Passport, it took them almost eternity to bring the passport out; possibly, they were doing some enchantment on it, or they were copying my details down to send to some embassies as a criminal. While he was rambling, my Mum was silent; when it seemed he would not stop, my mother cuts in, she said, “Sir, I have talked to her to stay back since she had used almost her youth here but she insisted on leaving and I reason with her. Now, can you pray for her as she is going out to a new terrain for success, it will be to your glory?” Joshua pretended as if he did not hear her. She repeated her request again, Joshua did not say anything, rather, he asked his personal driver to use his private Bus to take us to the park. Joshua still believes at the time that I would be coming back, he said, “nobody will take over your bed, I just want you to follow your Mum home and stay with her for 2weeks and come back.” He said I should go upstairs to the Studio to hug my sisters that were there, it was a last card psychology breakdown he tried to use to break me to change my mind from leaving. I went and hug them, All of them like me then need to go back into God’s workshop for a total overhauling of body, soul, and spirit, which had been used, abused, violated, and tampered with in the Synagogue. Joshua gave me 100, 000 naira, he gave my mum, 10, 000naira. Therefore, we set out of the synagogue finally. I got into synagogue ‘church’ in my 20’s, I left there finally in my 40’s; I spent almost all my productive life in that enclave but nothing spoils, I thank God I came out with my life, which is not difficult for God to put back together as He created it. He is the rewriter of destinies. (From “Deception of the Age Unmasked” Book)

I look back again, my heart leap with Joy, and I pray like mummy Hannah in Shiloh, saying: “My heart rejoices in the Lord; My horn is exalted in the Lord. I laugh at my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation. “No one is Holy like the Lord , For there is none besides You, Nor is there any Rock like our God. “Ha! Talk no more so very proudly; Let no arrogance come from your mouth, For the Lord is the God of knowledge; And by Him actions are weighed. “The bows of the mighty men are broken, And those who stumbled are girded with strength. I Samuel 2:1-4 NKJV
Then Bisola and those that love the Lord sing this song to the Lord, saying: “I will sing to the Lord , For He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea! The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; My God, and I will exalt Him. The Lord is a Man of war; The Lord is His Name. TbJoshua’s chariots and his army The Lord has cast into the sea; his chosen captains (demons) also are drowned in the Red Sea. The depths have covered them; They sank to the bottom like a stone. “Your right hand, O Lord , has become Glorious in Power; Your Right Hand, O Lord , has dashed the enemy in pieces. And in the greatness of Your excellence You have overthrown those who rose against You and Your people; You sent forth Your wrath; It consumed them like stubble. And with the blast of Your nostrils The waters were gathered together; The floods stood upright like a heap; The depths congealed in the heart of the sea. The enemy said, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my desire shall be satisfied on them. I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.’ The Lord blew with His wind, The sea covered them; They sank like lead in the mighty waters. “Who is like You, O Lord , amongst the gods? Who is like You, glorious in Holiness, Fearful in Praises, doing wonders? You stretched out Your right hand; The earth swallowed them. You in Your Mercy have led forth The people whom You have redeemed; You have guided them in Your strength To Your Holy habitation.
Exodus 15:1-13 NKJV
Rejoice with me, the genuine saints of the Lord! Rejoice with me, all angels that do His biddings! Rejoice with me, Heavens! Rejoice with me, All the works of His Able Hand! Rejoice with me, Oh earth! Rejoice with me, everyone who has breath.
I will love You, O Lord , my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the Lord , who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies. The pangs of death surrounded me, And the floods of ungodliness made me afraid. The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me; The snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called upon the Lord , And cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, And my cry came before Him, even to His ears. Then the earth shook and trembled; The foundations of the hills also quaked and were shaken, Because He was angry. Smoke went up from His nostrils, And devouring fire from His mouth; Coals were kindled by it. He bowed the heavens also, and came down With darkness under His feet. And He rode upon a cherub, and flew; He flew upon the wings of the wind. The Lord thundered from heaven, And the Most High uttered His voice, Hailstones and coals of fire. He sent out His arrows and scattered the foe, Lightnings in abundance, and He vanquished them. Then the channels of the sea were seen, The foundations of the world were uncovered At Your rebuke, O Lord , At the blast of the breath of Your nostrils. He sent from above, He took me; He drew me out of many waters. He delivered me from my strong enemy, From those who hated me, For they were too strong for me.

As Dagon fell flat before the Ark of the Covenant, so shall our enemies continue to fall. The Lord said, “I saw satan fall.” Period.

Freely give!

Thank you for stopping by, we hope you are richly blessed by His Infallible Word. May your Joy be full in Jesus’ Name
