Two artisans in Lagos exchanged blows during an argument over Prophet Temitope Balogun (TB) Joshua, the founder of Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN).
The cleric had died on June 5 2021 and was buried on Friday, July 9. However, on Saturday, a carpenter and a bricklayer engaged in fisticuffs over the late clergyman.
NEWSCASTARS.COM gathered from a witness who spoke to DAILY POST that the incident occurred at a hangout spot near North-West Petrol Station near Victoria Garden City (VGC) on the Lekki-Ajah expressway.
He said trouble started around 1 pm when the carpenter joined a conversation about the SCOAN founder.
“We were drinking and gisting when someone mentioned the death of TB Joshua. The carpenter said some terrible things. He claimed Joshua used diabolical means”, the informant said in Yoruba.
“But the bricklayer warned him to stop saying ‘rubbish’. That he would not sit and allow any negative conversation about the late Prophet.
“The man said it was when he started attending Synagogue Church that he built a house at Igando and bought his car.
“The other guy insisted TB Joshua was not a real man of God. As the argument continued, they started fighting. The bricklayer injured the carpenter, it was bloody.”
Policemen within the area were called as passers-by gathered at the scene.
