Another deadly stampede at SCOAN

SCOAN auditorium during busier times

Back in 2013, 4 people lost their lives at an anointed water service at SCOAN in Ghana. In 2014 around 116 people died when SCOAN’s illegal building collapsed on them. Now reports are coming out that 3 are dead after a stampede at SCOAN in Lagos. The incident happened before their annual healing and deliverance service, a stampede took place while visitors rushed to get through the door. As expected, SCOAN are denying anything has happened, a reporter quotes their spokesperson as saying “Nothing happened on the church premises yesterday. Nobody died. Nobody. Thank you.” however, the local police public relations office confirmed the incident.

These three incidents should serve as a warning to the public – SCOAN is not a safe place to visit, their crowd control is woefully insufficient and they completely ignore government regulations regarding building safety. SCOAN may try and present themselves as a place of healing, but events like these show the reality is tragically different.

Our hearts go out to those who have lost loved ones in this latest SCOAN disaster, and just before Christmas too. It’s likely that they spent a significant amount of their life’s savings to get to SCOAN in desperate search of a healing. Instead they have returned in a coffin. We call on the local authorities to fully investigate this incident, to enforce appropriate controls on SCOAN and to complete the building collapse trial. The SCOAN death toll must be brought to an end.

  1. oh my goodness! scoan is not only not save, it is under a curse! It is not under Grace! When a church is not covered by Grace, all evil is free to operate. this is the price power-guys pay for having great anoitings without Gods presence.

  2. According to various news outlets, there has been another fatal church-building collapse in southern Nigeria. Just curious to observe what the authorities will do about this one, bearing in mind that they keep dragging their feet regarding the equally deadly SCOAN building collapse of 2014!

  3. To the disciples of TB Joshua-

    Jesus commands you to get out of that place!

    Come home, we still love you!

    • I don’t think TB Joshua can say ‘I did not invite you’ no, no, maybe someone said that. Please people let’s wait for the truth.

      Ahhh! JUST WONDER do you have love? You don’t, all the time you criticize, you judge, you drag people’s names on the mud, you think SCOAN is a killer, someone with LOVE don’t behave like that, SCOAN people are your brothers and sisters, if you think they are lost, pray for them. You don’t have time to pray, if it is true some people died, no SCOAN member pushed them.

      Do you know what, Nigeria is cursed, ask the prophet who said so, he is still alive, he said the first president of Nigeria was murdered, his blood, his blood JUST WONDER. You like to criticize, how will you feel if somebody can say you are the one who pushed people to death, you were there, how do you know this???

  4. So sad that we put up with such denial of the obvious.

    Who has bewitched Africa that we have shifted from traditional witchcraft to Africanized Christian witchcraft?

  5. I want to quote your statement in your post: “SCOAN may try and present themselves as a place of healing, but events like these show the reality is tragically different.” so SCOAN are trying to present themselves as a place of healing! your minds are sick. Ask the thousands upon thousands of those who have received their miracles there and they will tell u if it is just illusion. secondly, u talk as if the SCOAN are happy or were planning that tragic incident to happen. as if they invited people to come so that would happen. Does that make any sense in the world?

      • TBJOSHUAWSTCH, you are a witch/wizard, I do not belong to this church, I have never visited SCOAN but I really don’t like what the “so called Christians” say about it, if SCOAN members need deliverance, you too need it because you don’t behave like
        real Christians

    • yeah, everything something tragic happens in Scoan, Scoan will say; we did not invite you! They abuse you, and when you complain, they say; we did not invite you! They kill, abuse, mis-lead and deceive people and say; we did not invite you!
      May God give TB Joshua the Grace and wisdom, to handle this new tragedy in a mature healthy mind. If he has any real heart for the souls of others, who are entrusted to him as a profhet, then he will close the whole damned garbidge-dump and mental hospital, that Scoan is, . , he will take counsel by men of God with common sense, and bow his proud head for new understanding. , and start anew, ; and only operate in campaigns and crusades,., where savety is garanteed. TB Joshua, just stop to relay on your own stupide wisdom. Thats your true tragedy.

      • Jamie, STUPID is you who clap hands and ululate when one of your brothers have a problem. Are you swearing in the face of God you will never ever have a problem???

  6. My dear brothers and sisters when its your day you go.lets not blame anyone what about those who die in witchcraft and Hospitals better keep quiet.

  7. fATIMA, Yeah, that is the misstake all ”christians” make, to believe that the members of a church should act and know more christ-like then the pastor does. At the end the members ar blamed for not being forgiving enough after they lost people in dead by repeatedly misstakes in a church, and repeatedly warning and corrections to the pastor. You are free to go to a church that can cost you your life. , and you are free to correct them by wise counsel., give it a try.

  8. Fatima:

    “…Ahhh! JUST WONDER do you have love?…

    Fanny, Fatima, that I was wondering that about you and tbj?

    He is swimming in a sea of blood already and doesn’t feel a thing!

    • JUST WONDER, if we are swimming in a sea of blood, pray for us, or say somehow nicely like a child of God instead of criticizing like someone who is swimming in a sea of sin. I am not scared of demons, if you kill people in SCOAN, you and your master satan, you won’t get me, if you tried because I like this prophet, you failed and you will fail a million times for ever and ever in the name of Jesus Christ I tell you. You won yes for killing innocent people in SCOAN because they did not listen to you, it does not mean you will always will. Did Job suffer for ever? No!!! Did Naomi and Ruth suffer their whole life? No!!! You are cursed you and your household because you have no love. Are you not ashamed of pointing a prophet with your filthy finger??? Stop judging, demons don’t judge, only God the Almighty does.

      • Oh, in the Name of Jezus, i bind you, you rotten spirit of religion, you hypocrite-sorcery-spirit, you lieing-spirit, you blind devil, go out of this man! amen.

  9. This thing about crowd control is something they need to fix. They should just find a way to fix it. I don’t think I’m being unloving when I say this. If anyone thinks otherwise, they will need to explain why.

  10. I dont even kno were u people ar bringin dis rumors frm. How can three people died in a stampid in scoan nd nobody heard abt it, as a mater of fact am a full scoan member, dat u hear is a rumor nothin like dat happend, beware of fales rumor.

    • The police PR office confirmed the incident. This buoys it up into something bigger than any rumor.

      As expected, SCOAN are denying anything has happened, a reporter quotes their spokesperson as saying “Nothing happened on the church premises yesterday. Nobody died. Nobody. Thank you.” however, the local police public relations office confirmed the incident.

  11. To TB Joshua,

    Now let me put your problems on this blog.

    Maybe you will know that I know what I am talking about?

    Your problems- at the moment – are your emotions.

    You are greedy, unhappy, disconnected, emotionally over past regrets and too easily distracted by the needs of others.

    You are overcoming your craving for drugs (Puer Keni Kenito essence), you are confused about sexuality and spirituality.

    You have fear and an addictive personality.

    You are having a religious conflict.

    Disputes with family and or friends, self pity, rejection of self.

    You are punishing and manipulating others through victimhood.

    You are struggling with your eyes and have reflux.

    Your body is toxic, because of improper treatment with old pharmaceuticals etc etc..

    But we are still praying for you and your problems.

  13. I dnt think that we should send this matter far we should live it to God to judge so that we live the man of God TB Joshua alone..after all no human can see into the spiritual realm unless God has chosen u,so as the law is,we should be careful using it on churches

  14. To TB Joshua:

    10 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

    11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon (money), who will commit to your trust the true riches?

    12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?

    13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.

    Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

    14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous (greedy), heard all these things: and they derided him.

    15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God – Luke 16

  15. Yesterday morning, I had a dream in which I was standing outside in a city setting and looking over buildings and looked behind me and the moon or the sun suddenly turned dark and became blurry. And when I looked in front of me, I saw thousands of people rising and lifted up in the air. I was in awe. But then I was still on the ground watching it. I said Lord, why I am still here ? And while I cried out and repented from all my sins and called upon Him, I suddenly was lifted up in the air too, higher and higher and I looked all over suspended. But here my dream stopped there and I woke up in a shock. What time is it ? Is it time ?
