What used to be a bubbly environment has in the past couple of months gradually turned a ghost town.
For those doing business within the vicinity of the Synagogue Church of All Nations in Ikotun, Lagos,the death of its founder, Prophet T.B Joshua has brought untold hardship on them.
This is because many of their businesses died along with the founder of the Church, Prophet T.B Joshua. A visit by celebrityplusonline revealed that many outlets including hotels, eateries, convenient stores and business centers have all closed shop.
This is due to the fact that many of their customers mostly foreigners who thronged the Church while T.B Joshua was alive for Spiritual Tourism no longer come around.
If some of them thought that the development was for a little while and that things would soon normalize after a few months of T.B Joshua”s death, they soon perished the thought when the matter got from bad to worse because of the delay in reopening the church following the controversies over succession which pitched late T.B Joshua’s wife, Evelyn, with some of the junior Pastors of SCOAN.
As it is,many of the hotel owners who hitherto smiled to the bank when the church was in full gear have put up their property for sale.Investigations reveal that many of the Hotel owners took loans from banks and the banks are on their necks over their inability to service the loans following the lull in business.Those not under heavy pressure to repay loans have put up their property for lease instead of outright sale.
Despite the reopening of the Church to normal worship a few months ago ,the situation has failed to improve and the plight of the business owners remaining what it is. This is because traffick has waned drastically at the once boisterous Church.

Primate Ayodele Begins Construction Of Multi-Million Naira 50,000-Capacity Church Auditorium
The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has begun the construction of a multi-million naira 50,000-capacity church auditorium in Oke-afa area of Lagos state.
The 50,000-capacity auditorium is necessary due to the high influx of members joining the church on a daily basis due to the mighty manifestation of God’s power in the ministry of Primate Elijah Ayodele.
The prophet who once revealed that he started the church with a little above 20 members made it known that the expansion of the church auditorium is basically a result of God’s instruction and not for personal glory. He explained that God has blessed his ministry with increase and in order to create more space for the thousands of people that throng the church premises during service, there is need for the expansion. Apart from the church building, Primate Ayodele has built a multi-million naira digital office that is set to be commissioned soon.
‘’INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church is a movement that started with God and still remains in God up till now. This is a ministry God gave to me and blessed with so much increase over the years. We started with about 20 members and never envisaged that one day, we would grow beyond our current space. During every service in this church, we normally have thousands of people including old members and intending members and our current space can’t contain us any longer. Due to this reason, there is a need for an expansion and with God’s support, we are expanding to a 50,000-capacity auditorium’’.
‘’It is also important to note that this isn’t for my personal glory or we are copying other ministries, this is a divine instruction from God and a spiritual need for the people of God’’.
In our world today, many believe that the number of church members determines the amount of money the pastor makes but for Primate Ayodele, every church service is always an avenue to give money to the needy, give food items to church members and provide succor for the downtrodden.
INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church has become a haven for the downtrodden in the society; apart from being a place of worship, the needy run to the church and get their needs met. On every first Sunday of the month, every member of the church gets food items worth thousands of naira. Also, during Tuesdays and Friday services, several people with financial needs always get support from the man of God. No doubt, the church expansion is a great advantage to society as it will translate to more people getting help from the man of God.
Primate Ayodele is very well known for his philanthropic activities especially in his immediate community in Oke-afa where his church is located. He was celebrated earlier this year for single-handedly constructing roads, drainage systems worth millions of naira for the community.
Prophet Oladele Genesis’ Fight With Rev. Mrs Esther Ajayi Gets Messier .Recounts How She Was Almost Jailed
All has gone sour between popular celestial prophet, Israel Oladele AKA Genesis and his spiritual mother, Rev Mother Esther Ajayi. This was evident in the recent outburst of the prophet during a live service at his church.
Prophet Genesis who didn’t directly mention Esther Ajayi’s name started by saying a woman he respects a lot abandoned him when he was in trouble despite the fact that he served her diligently.
He continued by saying the ‘woman’ gave deceased Yoruba actor, Baba Suwe the sum of N10 Million and supported young orange seller who did a cover of Tope Alabi’s song but never bothered to render help to him when he needed it.
It would be recalled that Rev Esther Ajayi went viral for giving Baba Suwe N10 million and for helping the young orange seller last year
Genesis made it known that Esther Ajayi has shown that she isn’t a woman of God with the singular act of abandoning him. He also explained that she has removed his pictures from her church since the tribulations began.
While revealing some secrets, Prophet Israel Oladele Genesis mentioned that the same thing that happened to him happened to Esther Ajayi but he was the one who covered up for her and prevented her from suffering what he suffered.
Furthermore, he warned her not to reply him because he will expose more secrets about her.
‘’I will not say it secretly, she just showed that she is not a woman of God, she helped people but I that serve her, She couldn’t help me when I got into trouble.’’
‘’What happened to me happened to you but I covered up for you, I am not scared of death or anything, I don’t need any friend.’’
‘’You are a woman, you know my mother, I was not even surprised when you said you had a dream about me in the midst of herbalists, it simply means you are one of them too.’’
‘’You better don’t reply me, if you do, it will be very disastrous than Oba Solomon.’’
