Here is an audio recording by investigative reporter Nicholas Ibekwe who was among the reporters sent to cover the synagogue church building that collapsed last week. According to him, and as heard on the audio, TB Joshua coaches the reporters on how to frame the news story after he had told them they would each be getting N50,000.
Nicholas Ibekwe says he was the only journalist who turned down the bribe while all the others in the meeting took the money. So you can imagine that most of the news reports you have read/ heard/ watched about the incident has been tainted by blood money, and spun to suit the tastes of TB Joshua.
That Nigerian journalists collect “transport money” or “brown envelope” at press conferences and events is not hidden, I’ve had to turn away or give in to some of their requests myself. But that they would do it over the deaths of almost 100 people?
Nicholas has been tweeting and wondering why the Prophet has not been prosecuted, but instead he has been getting condolence visitations from important personalities including the president himself. He later tweeted this evening that some people have been calling his friends and family members to ask him to stop, but he won’t be stopping any moment from now, except they stop him.
His tweets after the cut and audio proof.
