tb joshua bribed reporters

Sept 20, 2014 – Audio Tape: TB Joshua Bribed, Paid Nigerian Reporters, Journalists With N50,000 To Lie About Collapsed Church Building

The audio that you are about to hear will shock you, one of the reporters who exposed him was among those who got brutalised at TB Joshua’s church last week Friday.

When the news of reporters brutalisation broke, selected journalists were later permitted to enter the building on Friday.

They were all offered N50K each in brown envelopes by TB Joshua. He urged them not to over-report what they saw on the scene of the tragedy.

The controversial prophet told them to use the money to fuel their cars.

According to Nicholas Ibekwe, reporting of the building collapse in the Nigerian media has been too kind on TB Joshua so he wondered if it could be because of the cash he doles out daily to reporters. Also in the audio, you will hear T.B Joshua ask the reporters – “So, what are you going to write now?”” after offering them the N50,000 for fuel. The reporter answered him: “What you have just said”.

Hear him speaking to reporters in a low tone in the audio below:

Note: The undercover reporter who leaked this audio didn’t take the bribe offered to him by the prophet. He however alleged that all other reporters took the money with joy while they all laughed with TB Joshua before departing the scene.

    It is unfortunate that things like this is happening even in the house of God. The man of god deserves some jail time for this, it is totally unacceptable.

    This is the kind of reporting I love to hear, He was caught red-handed, let’s see whatelse he will say to cover up.
    This evidence is enough to prosecute him.

    In a God fearing, sensible, just, accountable society, this chap should have been locked up but what do you get…? Several people die in his church and so called dignitaries have been visiting him to shake his hands. Sick, sick, sick country. Thank GOD He does not accept bribes and He is honouring His word that judgement will start from the church. Thank You Lord for exposing all evil going about using your Name in vain. Carry on you who are honourable! Expose all evil in all corners. Perhaps we can soon begin to have a just, accountable country.

    This is clearly what investigative journalism is all about.Having hardcore and incontrovertible proofs to back up your facts.Kudos to Nicholas Ibekwe for this great and courageous work. This goes to show the level of rot in our mass media,same goes for our religious businessmen aka ‘men of God’.

    There is nothing wrong in this video. Still the enemies went to put words in his mouth so that they will report rubbish. He was very kind to give them that money to buy fuel, nothing to do with bribe. If he asked what are you going to write what is bad in that? Satan, devil you are a liar

    The journalist who did not collect bribe sold this story for more than N50.000. In other words he has collected huge bribe. He is not of any good man. Worst than the other journalist.

    This will not stop his followers from going there. It will instead strengthen our faith. He is a true man of God and nothing nothing will change our mind from going there. Man of god great prophet TB Joshua we all love you.

    where are his supporters now to curse us? ”THIS IS EXEBIT A” in court.The journalist who leaked this is a brave one for that matter and need to be promoted and the idiots who took the bribe without thinking about the victims should be send to jail without any prior judgment.

R.I.P to the lost once and QUICK recovery to the injured once.TJ JOSHUA GOD IS YOUR STRENGTH SIR.. God bless.

    To exchange words with people who don’t know God is a waste of time,atleast people should read their bibles and understand that Jesus himself suffered insults and even death,Stephen was stoned to death just for mentioning Jesus,Paul was imprisoned and whipped for Jesus and even today we still have people who are against Christ and you will see them by uttering insults to Men of God and blaspheming the Church of God,God himself never came to rescue his Son and he allowed him to suffer all the humiliations on earth so Prophet TB Joshua is made to suffer just like Jesus Christ. A true Christian will not conderm but will fear and give a helping hand to this Man who has scriphesed his time and life to the work of God.


      September 21, 2014 at 7:44 PM

      God knows his right men between those that their wife divorce him and who give bribe and made false statement or refuse to call it as ark of God.

    September 21, 2014 at 10:49 PM

    @mmusi kurusa you are preaching too much but mind you they are all irrelevant, out of point.The issue here is why did he give the journalists #50, 000 each? What was the money for? His church just collapsed he needs a lot of money to rebuild the church yet he gave out of#750, 000 for nothing? Is that what you are saying? Whether you like am or not, the man of god give bribe and the bribe Is for a purpose.

    Why do you people bent on tarnishing the image of this gentle man of God?. May God have mercy on you people. I am a journalist, there is no where in Nigeria that journalists are not offered brown envelope during press conference. You wrote this because your media is not a registered one that’s why you’re not given. Journalists are not paid salaries, they live on brown envelopes, every journalist knows this. so how did Prophet T.B. Joshua’s brown envelope turn to bribe? God is seeing everybody in this matter.

  22. Nkemdilim

    September 22, 2014 at 9:21 AM

    Prophet T.B. Joshua has been dashing money to people. This is not his first time of giving money out talk more of this our hungry journalist. Why is this one different? Just looking for something to hang him. Brown envelop is well known among all journalists, no press conference that goes without brown envelopes. I am a Journalist, that journalist that sent this was not given bcos his media is not a registered one. All journalist can testify to this.


    September 26, 2014 at 8:33 AM

    Nkemdilim, I am very disappointed with you, we all know that Prophet T.B is a generous man, but not in case like this. Why He didn’t call you guyz the journalist all this while to give u brown envelope?? and I don’t know if you did listen to that conversation very well; Well He is a man of God but He has to brought to justice. And it is obvious to everybody that Prophet T.B can not be compared with JESUS OF NAZARETH, But, when the Jews saw that HE is going contrary to their laws; They look for HIM and get HIM to what they think is justice….. Please, let us not support evil, so as our days will be fruitful.
