TB Joshua files fresh application to stop trial

The Registered Trustees of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations, founded by Prophet TB Joshua, have filed another suit before Justice Kazeem Alogba of Ikeja High Court to stop the Lagos State Government from going ahead with their prosecution over the death of 116 persons on September 12, 2014 when a six-storey building collapsed.

The Trustees of the church are asking the court to stop their proposed arraignment before Justice Lawal Lateef-Akapo of the same court.

In their fresh action, the applicants are urging Justice Alogba to call for the record of proceedings of a Lagos State Coroner Court, presided by Mr. Oyetade Komolafe, which indicted them and recommended them for criminal prosecutions.

They are also seeking an order of perpetual injunction restraining the Attorney General of Lagos State, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem, or any officer under his authority from taking any step to enforce the recommendations of the Coroner, including their prosecution.
