Ronke Oshodi Oke breaks silence on absence at TB Joshua’s Synagogue church

Ronke Oshodi-Oke

Actress Ronke Ojo, popularly known as Ronke Oshodi-Oke, has explained her absence at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).

The 48-year-old actress, who is a professed follower of SCOAN’s late founder, Prophet TB Joshua, made the explanation in a video uploaded to Instagram on Sunday, March 12.

Spotting a white sutana, which is customarily identified with the Celestial Church of Christ, Ronke said in Yoruba that her absence was caused by the scarcity of banknotes in Nigeria.

Translated to English, she said, “To all those saying I don’t come to Synagogue again, it is because of naira scarcity. It is terrible.

“It is not as if we spend money when we go to Synagogue but I live far from the church. Getting money for fuel, food and other things is a bit tough.

“That’s why I am unable to come to Synagogue for now.”

Ronke also took a swipe at those trolling her online over her weight loss.

According to her, she has been dealing with a health issue for the past six months.

Addressing those mocking her over her weight loss, the actress said, “Is it because I do not come on Facebook to beg that you do not know something is wrong with me?

“You just open your mouth and just talk without knowing what the other party is going through.”

She added that trolls should pray for forgiveness because some of them have caused others to die because of their unkind words.

Multiple media reports claim the actress is battling kidney disease. 

Ronke was one of the Nigerian celebrities who signed the condolence register at SCOAN after TB Joshua died in June 2021.

She also attended a tribute service for the televangelist as part of his burial programme the month after.
