Journalists detained by TB Joshua’s security

Credible reports are coming in that TB Joshua’s security guards have illegally detained four journalists reporting on his current visit to Ghana (source). The reporters were apparently filming the mayhem and gridlocked streets caused by TB Joshua’s arrival, when they were detained by his security guards and held against their will for hours, until the police were called and intervened.

Affail Monney, the President of the Ghana Journalist Association is urging investigations into this misconduct.

It is interesting to see how far SCOAN will go to control all their media output. Even in the age of smartphones and compact video cameras, you never see videos from inside SCOAN that aren’t from Emmanuel TV, presumably because of what happens to people who are caught filming without permission. This lack of transparency should concern anyone who has previously been impressed by anything shown on Emmanuel TV. What have they got to hide?
