Prophet T.B. Joshua has asked the Lagos state High Court in Ikeja to stop proceedings of the coroner inquest that has been set up by the Lagos state government from investigating what led to the collapse of his church building.
The pastor had filed an appeal through his counsel, Olalekan, Ojo, he also asked the court to declare that his invitation to appear as a witness before the coroner was a breach of his right to fair hearing, as no case had been established against him before the coroner.
This means that he is not going to appear in that court until he is indicted and of which he has not been found guilty of any crime.
But the coroner, Magistrate O.A. Komolafe however declined his request saying no one had served him court document to that effect.
