Lay Off my Church Says T.B Josgua


The founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations,
Prophet T.B. Joshua yesterday asked the Lagos
state High Court in Ikeja to stop proceedings of the
coroner inquest set up by the Lagos state govt to
look into the circumstances that led to his church's
building collapse on Sept. 12th which killed 116.
T.B Joshua, who filed the appeal through his
counsel, Olalekan, Ojo, also asked the court to
declare that his invitation to appear as a witness
before the coroner was a breach of his right to fair
hearing, as no case had been established against
him before the coroner.
T.B Joshua who was supposed to appear before the
coroner yesterday, through his counsel, asked the
coroner to suspend proceedings pending the
outcome of the case he just filed against it which is
to be called up for hearing on December 3rd.
The coroner, Magistrate O.A. Komolafe however
declined his request saying no one had served him
court document to that effect.
