The Leader and Founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T.B Joshua has apologised to Multimedia Group Ltd (MGL) over the detention of its two journalists on Tuesday.
Reporter Emmanuel Anteh and Cameraman Gilbert Azu were detained by security personnel of the Prophet for not seeking permission before covering a church programme on Tuesday at the Ghana branch of SCOAN at Spintex.
Speaking on behalf of the Prophet and SCOAN, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the church, Mr. Samuel Excellence said the Prophet condemned the act.
“I want to say that he is very, very sorry”, the PRO said.
He said the detention of the journalists was not at the Prophet’s instruction, adding it was an act of an over zealous security personnel.
He commended MGL and the press in Ghana for helping to correct some of the misconceptions about Prophet J.B Joshua.
Managing Editor of Joy News on Multi TV, Emma Morrison and Programmes Director, Abdulai Awudu, who spoke on behalf of MGL were happy with the gesture.
Abdulai Awudu was hopeful the “unfortunate” incidence will serve a positive purpose of establishing friendly ties between MGL and SCOAN.
