Church collapse: TB Joshua should’ve been charged with carelessness, says Soyinka - Punch Newspapers
The most widely read newspaper in Nigeria
10 May 2021Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, says the leader the Synagogue, Church of All Nations, Temitope Joshua, better known as TB Joshua, ought to have been prosecuted by the Lagos State Government after a hostel collapsed on the SCOAN’s premises in Lagos on September 12, 2014, killing at least 116 people, 84 of them South Africans.
Soyinka said this in Abuja on Saturday at the book reading and signing of two of his books titled, ‘Trumpism in Academe’ and ‘Chronicles of the Happiest People on Earth,’ organised by Rovenheights Bookstore and Orisun Gallery.The playwright said unfortunately, TB Joshua had the audacity to say that the church was attacked by a strange aircraft.
The Nobel laureate said Nigeria had become such a deeply religious society to the extent that actions that should be punished were regarded as an act of God.He also noted that some years ago, an aeroplane conveying pilgrims to Mecca crashed in Nigeria but instead of the authorities to take action, it was ruled as an act of Allah and no one was brought to book. headtopics.com
Soyinka added, “There are others for whom the calling is just a cover up because we have an abnormal respect for the priesthood in this country. It doesn’t matter which one – Muslim, Christian, Orisa worshipper, Buddhists, whatever it is.“Somehow, religion has almost national character and so it doesn’t matter who it is or what he does. He can get away with a lot. Look at TB Joshua for instance whose chapel of whatever it is in Lagos, collapsed on the congregation. Not just Nigerians, close to 200 or 300. They came from South Africa and so on and so forth.Read more: The Punch Newspapers »
