TB Joshua denies involvement in leaked Panama papers scandal
Controversial Prophet T.B Joshua is the latest to be named in the leak by the Panama law-firm Mossack Fonseca.
In the popular Panama Papers, the law-firm alleges it has proof that the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) founder Joshua and his wife have a company in the British Virgin Islands.
According to Premium Times, Temitope and Evelyn Joshua incorporated a shell company named Chillion Consultancy Limited in June 2006.
Joshua has since denied the allegations.
The documents obtained by the online publication claims that the company has no physical address.
Joshua, through a message on Facebook, said that he was shocked by the "malicious" and "propaganda" revelations.
"I was shocked to find a report written in Premium Times claiming that the Panama Papers revealed a shell company called Chillon Consultancy Limited in the British Virgin Islands, allegedly owned by me,” said Joshua.
He forms part of a long list of high ranking people including Jacob Zuma's nephew, Khulubuse, named in what has been labelled one of the biggest leaks in recent times.
In rubbishing the allegations, Joshua said that he is not a businessman and that people must not use the Panama Papers to victimise innocent people.
“I am not a businessman and have no business whatsoever. What God has given me is more than enough. I have nothing to do with the Panama Papers. As for me and my family, we shall remain in the vineyard of God.," he said.
