The General Overseer of the Synagogue church of All Nation, Pastor T.B Joshua, got many talking over the weekend when he rolled out a huge amount of money to 39 Nigerians out of the reported 172 Nigerians who were deported from Libya on Friday 11th March 2016.
According to reports, the deportees were each given the sum of N100,000 by the prophet, who is well known for his charitable gestures.
One of the deportees, Fidelis Onos, who spoke on behalf of the group, said most of them had been imprisoned for up to one year in Libya after they were suddenly arrested. Adding that some of them were working as bricklayers in the North African country where they had sought ‘greener pastures’.
“We are not here to blame Libya. If Nigeria was okay, we would never have left in the first place. It’s the war in Libya that turned it to what it is today. In a place where there is no government, what can you expect?” he said.
