Today was meant to see the continuation of the case against SCOAN trustees and the building engineers. There are now hundreds of very similar articles flooding social media claiming that the case against SCOAN and the contractors has been halted because the coroner’s report was at fault. However, there are a number of strange things about this article – we’re not sure what to make of it. For example:
- All the articles can be traced back to one published late last night authored by Ihechukwu Njoku. Njoku is well known to be a SCOAN PR “journalist”, he writes almost exclusively on TB Joshua, and has authored several posts on pro TB Joshua Blogs such as Watched TB Joshua.
- The source of the information in this article is said to be a “report leaked onto the internet”, but no link is given and no leaked report can be found.
- The entire article is commentary, without any direct quotes from this mysterious report.
- No major news organisations have published anything about the case today. Other trial days have been covered by publications such as the BBC and Newsweek. If this report were true, it would be the biggest news related to the case since the coroner’s report was released.
So far, we’re not sure what to believe. It could be true, but until we see some more credible sources, we’re not banking on it. Whatever the case is, we’ll keep praying for justice.
