Hear what TB Joshua’s critics have to say about the tragedy:
…regardless of what may be said by TB Joshua, it is quite clear to any rationally minded individual that this tragedy was caused by unauthorized and unregulated building work,… the alternative hypothesis presented by TB Joshua is verging on insane.
We all know TB Joshua’s critics would stop at nothing to smear his reputation, they have done well of that profession even without a tragedy like this, so we consider this tragedy a ‘feast’ for their fault-finding brains. This is not difficult to learn considering the number of articles they have published on the subject – so many that it almost appears they are elated over the tragedy. In all it is unequivocally clear that TB Joshua’s critic opinion hang on a mere speculation, there are absolutely no verified facts backing their claims. This is not a case at all to be speculated, neither is it a matter of belief. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but not to their own facts. Before it can be determined who was responsible, it must first be determined what was done and how it was done. The order of solving a crime is to figure:
1 WHAT happened then
2 HOW it happened e.g. what weapon, then
3 WHO did it and only then can we address
4 WHY they did it (motive)
None can convict the SCOAN of anything based on a speculation; how can you convict someone of a crime if you cannot prove the crime to charge them with? If you a going to accuse someone of a murder using a gun, you had better be sure the body has a bullet hole in it and this case of a collapsed building would take some time to fully investigate and ascertain. Yet before evening of the day of the tragedy, TB Joshua’s critics were already blaming TB Joshua for what they dubbed “unauthorized and unregulated building work” Before any investigation had been conducted to even determine what had even been done. So much for being a comprehensive resource. So great is their hate towards TB Joshua that they cannot wait for a conclusive investigation to be reached on the tragedy, waiting 10 days seems like waiting for 100 days when you are itching to accuse. TB Joshua gave a summary of the physical evidence captured by the CCTV camera at His church which a commenter on the TB Joshua critic blog put in these words:
This attack on SCOAN is another proof that Prophet TB Joshua is a real Man of God. I just finished watching the Church CCTV Camera play now in the live service and it has shown that a strange jet hovered the building 4 times before it collapsed. Now also in Nigeria. A Nigerian war jet used to fight Boko Haram Has been Missing since 10:30AM on Friday 12, of September 2014 and Was expected to return back 12 PM Same Day, Now check the time difference and verifying you will know that this was an attack on SCOAN Building.
In a related development, A SCOAN visitor by providence rather than by intent did take photographs of the fighter Jet that hovered over the SCOAN building while taking photographs of the SCOAN buildings for himself – this further lends credence to the CCTV footage of the plane hovering over the building before the incident shown on Emmanuel TV.
What one finds very disturbing is the fact that many TB Joshua’s critics deliberately and fully obscure the occurrence of the strange jet that hovered over the collapsed building in their analysis of this tragedy and rather than call for investigation as to what this fighter jet was doing around the building four times and how it got there and who was manning it, they are busy clamoring for the arrest of TB Joshua. To them, it seems inconsequential to the subject matter that a Nigerian war jet used to fight Boko Haram went missing since 10:30AM on Friday 12, of September 2014 and that on the same day from about 11:43 am, a strange Jet was seen hovering over the SCOAN building four times within very short intervals before its collapse with photography proofs and eye witness accounts both at the Church premises and even without. They would rather hold to the assumption that the military’s jet sudden appearance and the rounds it made over the building was unimportant and would rather maintain that the building was unauthorized so as to make sure TB Joshua is indicted and charged for homicide.
If these people owned a lodging over which a similar thing happened is this the same action they would take? Hypocrites! Why would a ministry as wealthy as the SCOAN use substandard materials in constructing a lodging? Even a die-hard TB Joshua critic on the TBJ critic watch blog after watching the video of the building collapse severally, did support that the collapse looked like a “controlled demolition”
It should be noted that so far TB Joshua’s ministry has done the biggest injury to the Boko haram sect in Nigeria, delivering their members, exposing their secrets publicly and continually challenging their activities with an eye of superiority over them. This may just be their own way of getting back at SCOAN.
The reporting of the Nigerian Television authority, the NTA about this incident has just shown itself to be lopsided journalism. Yesterday, on the 18th of September 2014, by 9:00pm Nigerian time during the network news on the NTA, The channel showed the added clip of the SCOAN visitors comment on the mysterious plane, but much deliberately edited out the first part in which a Visitor took photos of the mystery jet flying so dangerously close to the building. What a Shame! I believe this was the reason the SCOAN members were hostile to them from the beginning, because the smelt a rat in their guts. This is the same Nigerian Television Authority that did not consider it newsworthy that the Late President Omar Bongo of Gabon who was then the longest ruling president in Africa, paid a visit to a Nigerian Prophet, TB Joshua; this is the same Nigerian Television Authority that did not consider it newsworthy that the late Ghanaian President John Evan’s Atta Mills, visited the SCOAN for a thanksgiving. But now a building in The SCOAN collapsed (tragedy) and they were all over the place within minutes of the incident. What a shame!
As for those going on about the building being unauthorized, it should be pointed out that even if it turns out that the building did not have government approval, that does not automatically mean the building is substandard. These are mutually exclusive events. There is no reason whatsoever why the SCOAN would use substandard materials to erect a building. Secondly, if the building approval or whatever documentation were really necessary as is now hyped about, the regulatory body behind the said approval ought to have been present before now to require it from the SCOAN and sanction the ministry then for not having it, not now after the building has collapsed they begin to blurt allegations of “no approval”, After all, a regulatory body did visit the SCOAN to ask it to pay for the sign inscribed at the top of the SCOAN auditorium.
And finally to you TB Joshua; One would say now is the time for you to remember the Lords words:
“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19“If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.…John 15:18
