'TB Joshua Offered Us N50K Bribe'- Reporter Releases Audio Recording
Following last Friday’s tragic collapse of a building inside the Synagogue Church of God premises which killed 80 people, an audio tape has emerged and in it you can hear someone who sounds a whole lot like the leader of SCOAN Prophet TB Joshua offering N50,000 each to journalists who were invited to the church for a press briefing.
The N50,000 apparently was money for the journalists to “buy fuel in their cars”. On the tape after telling the journalists about the envelopes each stuffed with N50,000 cash bribe “fuel money”, you can also allegedly hear Prophet TB Joshua saying “I would be very happy if you can help me go & correct some of the things that is inside the paper”.

Following the tragic building collapse it was reported that followers of TB Joshua attacked journalists who tried to cover the collapse. Some journalists were reportedly beaten up for trying to take pictures while others got their cameras smashed.
The next day Prophet T.B Joshua invited journalists who had returned to the scene to cover the rescue efforts. He denied his church members had attacked the journalists. He said the attacks were carried out by “people in the community”
Nichola Ibekwe a journalist who was present when the press men were offered the N50,000 “fuel money” & uploaded the tape, tweeted
Reporting of building collapse in the Nigerian media is too kind on TB Joshua. Could this be because his doles out cash daily to reporters?
