Popular Nigerian prophet, TB Joshua, has donated ₦7 million and bags of rice to over 250 Nigerian deportees who arrived from Libya on Friday, May 12, 2017.
According to media reports, a total of 258 Nigerians were deported from the North African nation. Their deportation, facilitated by the International Organisation for Migration, was widely publicized.
They arrived in the early hours of the day at the The SCOAN located at Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos looking very unkempt, malnourished and weak.
The cleric posted about their arrival on his official Facebook Page:
“On Friday 12 May 2017, 258 Nigerians who were deported from Libya rushed to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in search of refuge. After learning of their impromptu arrival, Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Emmanuel TV Team immediately provided foodstuff and financial support.
Many were frail and unkempt due to the hardship they had endured. Moved by compassion, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave each of them a cash gift totaling ₦7Million alongside two bags of rice and Morning Water to start their lives afresh. Glory be to Jesus Christ! Be a good giver- first to God, and then to your fellow men.”
