The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) has confirmed that there was fire outbreak at its old site on Wednesday evening.
A statement posted on the church’s social media pages said the fire was from a general purpose store at the old site. It was however silent on reports that part of the founder Prophet TB Joshua’s tomb was affected.
“On the evening Wednesday, April 27, 2022, a fire outbreak occurred at the old site of the SCOAN, located at Agodo, Egbe,” the statement said.
“The fire outbreak was from a general purpose store at the old site and has been successfully put out through the efforts of the ministry’s emergency response team, with no injuries whatsoever and no lives lost.
“Currently, the cause of the fire is unknown. To this end, we wish to assure our esteemed members, partners and friends of the ministry that we are on top of the situation. There is no need for panic and unecessary speculations.
“As sons and daughters of love, we shall continually uphold the assurances of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who has conquered the world for our sakes.”
The church, which is now under the control of Joshua’s widow Pastor Evelyn, urged her members to disregard “any alarmist news aimed at creating panic amongst the church members in particular and the general public.”
