On Tuesday 8th May 2018, over 50 Nigerian deportees who just arrived from Libya came to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in a dishevelled and desperate state. Recounting their sordid stories, they explained how they had seen the height of human brutality in the course of their illegal journey, many being “sold into slavery” upon their arrival in Libya and facing inhumane treatment and torture at the hands of their captors. They had squandered their life-savings on the suicidal journey, returning to their homeland with nothing but the clothes on their backs and scars on their bodies to show for their years abroad in search of “greener pastures”.
After hearing of their plight, Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Emmanuel TV Partners gave the group the sum of N1.8m ($5,000) to help start their lives afresh in Nigeria.
