EFCC Commences Investigation on SCOAN Petition

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had received a petition from the Synagogue Church of all Nations against some members. The agency said it has commenced investigations. 

The church claimed that some workers and disciples had misappropriated the funds of the church. However, it denied that the new SCOAN Board of Trustees Chairperson and leader, Evelyn Joshua arrested the said workers and disciples.

It will be recalled that on July 5, 2021, the head of the church, Prophet T.B. Joshua passed on. His sudden death caused a leadership tussle in the church before his widow was finally made the new leader. Below is an excerpt of the statement by the church concerning the misappropriation of its funds.

 “In view of the discovery of huge cases of financial misappropriation perpetrated in the past few months, reckless individualism and unimaginable acts grossly antipodal to the sanctuary with the passing of the founder, the church leadership took steps to secure certain critical assets of the church with an authorisation for a comprehensive audit of the activities of the church.

“This exercise involved some category of church workers, including disciples and it is being carried out objectively under a regular and absolutely normal environment without any harassment whatsoever to any person or group of persons.”

The spokesperson of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, has confirmed that the agency was investigating a petition from the church.
