The founder of The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet
TB Joshua, has donated the sum of N5million to Mr. Sunday Udoh, whose
wife was shot dead by police in Lagos State last year.Prophet
Joshua counseled Mr Udoh that he should be consoled in knowing his wife
died after returning from church. He further encouraged him to continue
worshiping God, adding that one should stay where God has placed him.
Below is the full post as captured on the church’s official page:
“One moment was all it took. One bloody, harrowing moment and the world
of Mr Sunday Udoh literally came falling apart. The body of his beloved
wife lay strewn on the floor as blood flowed from the gaping wound on
his jaw. Two brutal gun shots and then deafening silence…
Mr Udoh, his wife and children were returning home from a prayer
meeting in their church when tragedy struck in the cruelest, most
heinous of ways. Halted by members of the police, who were clearly
intoxicated by alcohol, the sum of N2,000 was rudely demanded from
Sunday. Insisting he had no cash with him, he was grudgingly waved on to
proceed. However, moments after sitting down in his vehicle, two gun
shots rang out. One struck his shoulder and then pierced his lower jaw.
The other killed his wife instantly.
The baby she carried fell alongside her lifeless body, three young
children witnessing the ruthless killing of their dear mother in cold
blood. No tears could replace what had been so callously taken away.
Confronting the policemen responsible, Sunday received nothing more than
threatening words before they took to their heels.
Nearly six months down the line, the body of Mrs Udoh’s wife was
still lying in the mortuary. Their children, traumatised by the horrific
incident, had left school – the eldest daughter developing epileptic
fits in the wake of the senseless killing.
Although the policemen responsible had been dismissed from their
workplace and human rights groups had protested and called for justice,
the family were still suffering. Sunday was incapacitated, unable to
work as he struggled to overcome his injuries. Two major operations
later and the wound on his jaw still leaked pus and his shoulder
remained numb. Although not a member of The SCOAN, Sunday was advised
that if he could come to the Arena of Liberty, God would use Prophet
T.B. Joshua to assist him both physically and spiritually.
After sharing his ordeal, Emmanuel TV viewers and partners around the
world wrote in, promising to support the family to start life afresh.
Prophet T.B. Joshua announced he would give the family N5 million,
counseling Mr Sunday that he should be consoled in knowing his wife died
after returning from church, stressing that the manner in which death
comes should not be focused on. He further encouraged him to continue
worshipping in his church, adding that one should stay where God has
placed him. “You are because I am; I am because you are.
