Pastor Temitope Joshua, the leader of the
Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN),
has joined Nigeria’s big league of miracle and
prosperity priests who own private jets,
SaharaReporters has learned authoritatively

Widely-known as TB Joshua, the church leader
took possession

of the nearly brand-new Gulfstream G550 aircraft
in April 2015, a few months after a building
collapse at the premises of his megachurch in the
Ikotun-Egbe suburb of Lagos killed 116 people.
Registered as “Synagogue Of Nations,” the jet was
purchased using the Bank Of Utah trustee as the front for purchasing the jet.

Pastor TB Joshua’s jet is the most expensive of the
four owned by Nigerian pastors. Pastor David
Oyedepo (Bombardier Challenger 604), Pastor
Enoch Adeboye  (Gulfstream GIV), and Ayo
Oritsejafor (Bombardier Challenger 601) are also
jet owners.  It would be recalled that Pastor Ortsejafor’s jet was cited in South Africa for money-
laundering money last year.  The new Nigerian
government is said to be investigating the
circumstances of that case, which involved federal
funds.

Pastor TB Joshua’s jet has already started making
the rounds. In June, it left the Murtala Muhammad
International Airport in Lagos on a whirlwind of
South America, departing north from there to
Kentucky in the United States.

The jet, which has US registration number N131LK,
was built in 2010.  It was delivered to its first user
in 2013 before making it to TB Joshua early this
year.  SaharaReporters learned that the jet made a
voyage to Nigeria in December 2013, as the Bank
of Utah was apparently pitching it to Pastor TB Joshua.  The man of God reportedly asked to see it
and bless it before finally taking delivery.

It could cost up to $3 million to maintain the jet
annually, depending on how heavily it is used. Interior of a G550 jet
