All prophets and evangelists or "wise men" as they are known who had migrated to Nigeria in order to work at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) founded by the late Temitope Balogun Joshua, aka T. B. Joshua, have been deported.
Their deportation, according to Sahara Reporters is not unconnected with the request of the wife of the late founder to the Nigerian government.
The death of T.B. Joshua created a leadership crisis within the church, especially between his wife, Evelyn Joshua and other church leaders who felt she was not qualified.
The news agency also reported that it obtained documents that showed that during the lifetime of the televangelist, he kept his wife and family away from the public eye and the politics in the church. Evelyn was also removed from SCOAN’s Board of Trustee, BoT. She was hardly seen in the church.
Prophet Racine Bousso from Senegal, Prophet Joseph David from Nigeria, and Prophet Christopher Dennis Tonge from the United Kingdom mostly stood in for T. B. Joshua before his death. Some of the church officials were also reported to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged embezzlement and misappropriation of funds.
Those deported include Annette Easting (United Kingdom), Catherine Ann (United Kingdom), Ruth Christina Tonge (United Kingdom), Christopher Dennis Tonge (United Kingdom), Seunghwa Lee (South Africa), Cindy Elizabeth Widjaja (Indonesia), Elizabeth Botouna (Greece), Angelique Nyinawintwari (Holland) and Angela Patricia Quintero (Colombia).
Others are Allison Polo Sandoval (Colombia), Flor Perez Rodriguez (Mexico), Fanny Elma Alfred (France), Racine Bousso (Senegal), Angela Marie Brandt (USA), Nadine Graham (South Africa), Eugene Rademeyer (South Africa) and Stella Cambrone (France).
They were said to have been shamefully rounded up by security personnel and those attached to the church premises.
