Synagogue Building Collapse: T.B Joshua Threathened with Arrest After Failing To Appear In Court for 2nd time

 
For the second time, TB Joshua failed to show up in court after being summoned by the coroner, to testify regarding the synagogue building collapse which killed 116.The coroner Oyetade Komolafe,has threatened to order his arrest after failing to show up on November 5 and 19.He said
“We don’t want the impression to be created that The Prophet is avoiding the court,Any of the witnesses who is not in court today will be arrested. I think the court has been lenient enough.”
However,Joshua's lawyer,Olalekan Ojo, told reporters after the hearing:
 “We have gone to the high court to challenge the jurisdiction of the coroner to issue a witness summons.The coroner has unconsciously exceeded his jurisdiction in that he has started inquiring into matters that are not causative of deaths.The Prophet has respect for the law of the land and will not do anything that will hurt the law,If at the end of the day, it is appropriate for The Prophet to appear he will be in court. We do not intend to abuse the legal process.Besides, The Prophet has a milk of human kindness. He is still grieving over the horrendous loss of lives. Coming to court is not proper. It is not a good way of showing respect for the dead.”
