#PanamaPapers: Documents counter T.B. Joshua’s denial of own offshore company in tax haven

Four separate documents retrieved from the massive #PanamaPapers database have countered the claim by the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Temitope Joshua, that he had no link with any offshore company at the British Virgin Island (BVI), a notorious tax haven.

PREMIUM TIMES had, as part of its #PanamaPapers coverage, exposed Mr. Joshua, one of Africa’s most famous televangelists, as having link with Chillion Consultancy Limited, a shell company incorporated in BVI on June 20, 2006.

But shortly after the story ran, the pastor posted a statement on his church’s Facebook Page, denying ownership of the company and suggesting the report was fabricated to pull him down.

However details in the documents PREMIUM TIMES is now making public point directly at Mr. Joshua and his wife as owners of Chillion Consultancy.

The documents include:

  1. Certificate of incumbency which shows the company as being in good standing at least until December 13, 2006
  2. Register of members
  3. Register of Directors
  4. Case Details – Shareholders/members of the company.

The documents show that while incorporating the company, Mr. Joshua or his agent provided Mossack Fonseca with details of his valid passport at the time with which he was identified in all transactions related to him and the company.

Mr. Joshua’s passport number at the time was A3369050A, and that was reflected in the Panamanian law firm’s record.

The documents show that the pastor and his wife owned one ordinary share each, although the company, with registration number 1033675, was authorized to issue a maximum “50,000 no par value Shares of a single class”.

The document also revealed that Chillon Consultancy Limited has no physical address but uses the office address of its registered agent, Mossack Fonseca (Akara Bldg., 24 De Castro Street, Wickhams Cay 1, Road Town, Tortola) as its contact information in the British Virgin Island.

The pastor had ignored multiple telephone calls and an email requesting him to comment for the story before it was published. A spokesperson for the church, who answered his telephone, insisted “the man of God was not available to answer your call.”

He advised the reporter to send an email. But even that email is yet to be responded to.

Mr. Joshua’s name popped up as PREMIUM TIMES dug into the leaked internal data of the Panama-based offshore-provider, Mossack Fonseca, obtained by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and shared by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) with PREMIUM TIMES and over 100 other media partners in 82 countries.

The unprecedented year-long investigation involving 11.5 million secret documents – which stretched from 1977 to December 2015 – exposed the hidden underground of the world economy, a network of banks, law firms and other middlemen that utilize shell companies, sometimes using them to hide illegal wealth.

The 2.6 TB files, involving 214,488 entities, also revealed hundreds of details about how former gun-runners, contractors and other members of the spy world use offshore companies for personal and private gain.

The investigation unveiled the cloak of secrecy provided by Mossack Fonseca, a law firm that specializes in creating offshore companies, some of which have been used by con men and women to hide Ponzi schemes, predatory lending scams, and other financial frauds from their victims and from the authorities.

Many people using offshore companies do so legally and offshore companies indeed have many legal purposes.

But shell companies like Mr. Joshua’s, experts say, are entities that have no active businesses and usually exist only in names as vehicles for another company’s business operations. In essence, they are corporations that exist mainly on paper, have no physical presence, employ no one and produce nothing. They are frequently used to shield the identities of owners and/or to hide money.

Because shell companies are at times associated with fraud, their activities are of big concerns to international bodies such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

Money laundering, billing schemes, fictitious service schemes, bankruptcy fraud, tax evasion, and market manipulation are some of the fraudulent activities facilitated by shell companies, several past investigations by ICIJ and this newspaper have shown.

  • Cleartruth

    Why are you guys disturbing TB Joshua? Did he steal any money from the government? I’m not a member of his church, but I don’t understand why PT instead of going after looters like Danjuma and co and even dangote whose name appear on Panama papers, are wasting time trying to destroy the image of TB who hasn’t looted any money anywhere. Shame on you Premium Times.

    • Bola

      He denied owning the account and that impugn the credibility of the whole thing.

    • Whalerolex

      TB Joshua the god of man has done nothing illegal but one thing is a fact, HE LIED again. I do not understand why his members cannot ask him questions. This man will again preach on Sunday to his mumu members and they will shout halalujah. I don’t even know the way out for Nigeria. Politicians slap our face from the right, pastors do from the left and all we do is siddon look awaiting God and his angles to come down and physically help.
      Nigeria, Nigeria, Nigeria wake uppppppp or else I’ll relocate to Mars

      • Pax

        You got the drift. Only a prospective rogue admires a current rogue. Show me your friend, and I will tell you who you are. Nigeria has self-inflicted problems. Note how they depart from the facts written and begin to defend and abuse each other. Eledumare, Allah, God, Chukwu, save us, for we know not what we do!

    • Osho Triton Olayinka

      God bless u o…..Saraki is there, Many politicians are there…why are they pursuing somone who has no involvement with Government money?? i would say PT is biased with their investigations…they could have as well brought the documents of other politicians…the man said he doesnt have anything to do with it….why are you forcing people to know he is involved?? as a matter of fact, this story isnt of public interest…so what?? This is somone you will still run to when your company starts crashing..u r taking every opportunity to make people believe he’s false…i pity u.leave Judgement to Jesus…In the bible, even when God was against Isreal, when he made less powerful countries take them as captives…do u knw the fate of dos countries at the end?? all this things are normal, its normal to pass thru trials but Woe unto him who stands behind it…it was all written that Jesus will be btrayed by his disciples…but Judas who betrayed him, what was his end like??? I pity you people….

    • Wiirute_Guthoma

      He has enriched himself with the sweat of many fools who are broke asses

    • Ha

      This is just a process of verifying whether he stole or assist in stealing government’s money. Is there any fault in doing that?

    • Eziokwubundu

      He is denying setting up the company. We want to know the truth. A man of God should not choose when to tell the truth or lie. He must always tell the truth

  • Dat

    No comments, as of yet, from his ardent disciples.
    Only if such exposures could make people realise that the church is, and has always been, a charade. However, history has shown us that they will come out defending his act, citing human fallibility.

        • Ha

          But why he was denying it? Doesn’t it seem that he was trying to hide something?

        • Fadama

          The church does not pay tax but if you run a private business then you are required to pay tax. So, a pastor who owns chains of businesses shouldn’t pay tax because he also tends some lambs and feeds some sheep?

        • Arabakpura

    • Eziokwubundu

      Yes, he has the right to float a company in any part of the world he chooses. Why lie about the ownership of such company? That is the crux of the matter. The truth is that people resort to lying to hide some fundamental truth. All these controversies would have bee avoided if he accepted ownership of the said company

      • Cy

        My point exactly! Why the lies and denials? You’d think he’d sue. Let’s watch.

        • Otile

  • everything about GMB is evil

    The latest sad news from the president and “former” dictator is the threat to treat anybody alleged to have tampered with oil pipeline or power installation “like Boko Haram.” If we study carefully the underlying tone and body language of General Buhari, this might be another veiled plan to destroy communities and kill people of the oil producing South under the guise of protecting pipelines.

    largest oil producer in Africa

    We hope that this is not an indirect authorization by for the military and police to continue with extra judicial killings of the southern people. We at TAO remind the General Buhari (retired or not), that the whole world is watching. A tacit approval for genocide will not be without consequences. The international Court of Justice, Amnesty International and Human Rights Organizations are watching.

    General Buhari on Wednesday was quoted as saying Nigeria will crack down on groups responsible for recent pipeline attacks in the oil-producing Delta region,

    “We will deal with them the way we dealt with Boko Haram,”

    “I hope this message will reach the vandals and saboteurs who are blowing up pipelines and installations,” he said.

    “The government is still being dared, but those who are sensible should have learnt a lesson. Those who are mad, let them continue in their madness.

    “I am aware that in the last two weeks, the national grid collapsed a number of times. I hope this message will reach the vandals and saboteurs who are blowing up pipelines and installations.

    “We will deal with them the way we dealt with Boko Haram.”

    We at TAO just want to remind the General that “blood is thicker than oil”. There must NOT be bloodshed again because of oil.

    • Ha

      Can you please show how this relates to TB Joshua’s fraud?

      • jude L/A USA

  • Analyst

    Please don’t collect a curse in what you don’t understand. Jesus did not sent men of God to be poor. T.B Joshua works for God and not for man:

    The LORD gave these further instructions to Aaron: “I myself have put you in charge of all the holy offerings that are brought to me by the people of Israel. I have given all these consecrated offerings to you and your sons as your permanent share.You are allotted the portion of the most holy offerings that is not burned on the fire. This portion of all the most holy offerings–including the grain offerings, sin offerings, and guilt offerings–will be most holy, and it belongs to you and your sons.You must eat it as a most holy offering. All the males may eat of it, and you must treat it as most holy.All the sacred offerings and special offerings presented to me when the Israelites lift them up before the altar also belong to you. I have given them to you and to your sons and daughters as your permanent share. Any member of your family who is ceremonially clean may eat of these offerings.I also give you the harvest gifts brought by the people as offerings to the LORD–the best of the olive oil, new wine, and grain.Everything in Israel that is specially set apart for the LORD also belongs to you…..” Numbers 18:8 – 15

    • Wiirute_Guthoma

      Don’t be a moron. There are no curses for exposing works of darkness

    • Dat

      Here we go!!! defending the indefensible.
      Quoting verses from a book that has been distorted over centuries to suit the whims and caprices of man doesn’t really cut it with the discerning.

      If you accept the church for what it is – a business enterprise – then I rest my case.
      However, if, as most ‘believers’ do, you opine that the church is an altruistic organisation setup for the salvation of souls then I suggest you trawl through history.

      One doesn’t have to be a genius to figure out that this is simply unethical, and plain wrong.
      Funneling funds donated by people with sometimes meagre means to an offshore location shows a high level of deceit. One should be livid if Christ’s representative on earth engages in such an act.
      But hey, decades of blind faith and incessant indoctrination can’t be overturned overnight 🙂

          It would be helpful if you could comment on the issue at hand rather than turning this debate into a mudslinging exercise.
          Perhaps I could help you recollect what the issue is; A supposed man of ‘God’ has deprived his congregation of their hard-earned money. To add to that, the perpetrator goes on to spirit away these funds to a tax heaven.
          One would like to think that this is an act of insincerity,deceit, and whatever unsavory words one may use. It is worth pointing out that his actions goes against the tenets of his supposed faith.

You are one of those the Bible refer to as “who the god of this world has blinded their mind so that the gospel of our Lord shall not shine through.” Why did the Bible say that about you? It is not because you do not attend Church service , neither is it because you do not pay your tithe as and when due, but the Bible went further in other passage that “the time will come when people like you will not put up with sound doctrine but instead they will look for teachers who will tell them what their itching ears want to hear.”

    Pope Francis speaks on Pastor T.B Joshua’s type

    “A life based on corruption is varnished putrefaction. Parents who earned through bribes or corrupt practices
    have lost their dignity and fed their children with unclean bread. Receiving bribes is like a drug, as the
    receivers become dependent on the habit of bribes. Those involved in corrupt practices are like
    whitewashed tombs which appear beautiful from the outside, but inside, are full of dead bones
    and putrefaction. It would be better if a millstone were put around their necks and they
    be thrown into the sea, because where there is deceit, the Spirit of God cannot be.”

            Apologies accepted, parley. You sincerely got me confused initially. Didn’t realise you were another unapologetically upright fellow. Peace, then.

            This is not like the Fulanis killing people in their farms and raping women in their homes. Knock off your obsession with the Pastor.

    That the Nigerian mega churches are out to make money should on longer come us as a surprise, from the collapsed Ponzi scheme of Bishop Katung of Maranatha Church in which 64,000 “investor” reportedly lost a staggering N11.5 billion to T.B. Joshua’s investment reported here. Christians no longer follow the teachings of Christ: Jesus drove the money changers out of the synagogue, suggesting he was against profit making; Jesus said his followers should give their riches to the poor. Few Christians have shown any willingness to abide by Christ’s injunctions. Instead, greed, lies and worldly concerns permeate their teachings and life styles.

    J’ai l’impression que cette affaire vous intéresse beaucoup. Continuez à creuser peut-être que vous trouverez le moyen de tuer le prophète de Dieu. Mais pour ma part je trouve que cette histoire n’intéresse pas l’Afrique. Je soutiens les zones franches dans les pays et je soutiens les sociétés dans les paradis fiscaux. Je suis surpris qu’il y ai peu de pays africains qui sont des paradis fiscaux.
    Je suis convaincu que vous perdez votre temps comme d’habitude à chercher le mal là où il n’est pas.

  • ijelejames

    TB Joshua operates a ponzi ‘synagogue’ and he knows it. His denials can’t save him. Lol!

    • Factsay

      get a life.
      None of the published documents have proved anything.
      The documents were not signed by him. And two of the documents are not even signed at all

      • ijelejames

        I may or may not have a life but I have a say. You have houseboy mentality so you can go ahead and protecting your master. Thank you.

  • God knows tomorrow

    Let them published Dangote and Danguman certificate of Incorporation plus Saraki company document.I think Ex-Sanate President Devid M also denial,why can they publish his own company details.WHY TBJ?I hope this is not a forged document,bescause anything is possible in Oluwole and computer can print any document a beg.Why can they publiahed that day TBJ denial it.Why today after they have gone to cumputer to manipulate the document.

    • I did It 4 Love.

      Hahaha God knows tomorrow but Tinubu and premium know today that is why they wented to cumputer to manipulate the document and publiahed it for people like us to take a mick.
      If I’m a Pastor or Imam I will also deny the allegation even if you wake me up at 2am.

      No meaning.

  • Factsay

    These documents are worthless and useless. None of these documents were signed by him and his wife.
    Two of the said documents are not signed at all. No bank details, no money.

    Could be a work of fraudsters that materialized to nothing.

    • Wiirute_Guthoma

      Fraudsters got hold of his passport and that of his wife?

      • soyo

        U know I said you are a confused man just writing whatever yur fingers type. U wrote against me a moment ago, and came here to give a different position. Just write in yur fulfude language, I go understand yur line of thought on this unfolding drama and expose.

      • Otile

        You are a madman.

  • Ajayi Ifayemi

    I still think something is fishy with this one. The evidence published is not solid. These are typed stuff that anyone could have set up using these people’s name. Premium Times had done right by publishing, but now that there is denial, there needs to be further investigation to get to the root. Something is really fishy here.

    • Maverick

      You must be a blind loyalist of APC where Diezanni is guilty until proven innocent and Amaechi innocent until proven guilty.

      • Ajayi Ifayemi

        You are one those nut cases that is still loitering around here, abi? What has Joshua got to do with APC. In fact an APC government is trying the man in Lagos, which I support. Can one ever be objective in this country again without crazy folks like you coming out with senseless labeling. Please stay away from me, I only discuss with people who think, not asylum cases like you. Nonsense!!!

  • 9ja needs a new leader

    Pastor TB Joshua –has all the rights in the world to operate as he likes and–does not need the consent of Efcc, DSS ati Buhari to open an account or a company—–in any part of the globe——————–Aware these firms are often created by individuals without the consent of those they are opening them for—Anybody can just buy a firm alread registered in Panama on the web———–There is no big deal in this matter I begi!–The question is, did he steal government money like Sanusi—-Amaechi or Fashola—ati Tinubu—–Dangote to enable him register the firm? We need more information on the 17 bank accounts Tinubu opened abroad-Not this fake APC sonsored stories—I beg yank this silly childish unjournalistic rubbish away from here———————–It does not make sense one little bit-Already the firm that released the information is under investigation—Their office was raided yesterday–Sadly this was the same pastor who prayed for Jonathan to be removed from aso rock on behalf of Buhari and tinubu his Yoruba brother—animals

    • Wiirute_Guthoma

      Don’t be a moron. Focus on the fact that TB Joshua lied and denied this company

    • soyo

      This boy is sick and needs treatment. Out of the hundreds of millions u made under Jonathan posting sponsored comments for 6years now, you can’t take just 1m or 2m out of it to travel abroad and go treat yourself of this debilitating ailment that is affecting your mental wellbeing. Se na when you run mad patapata and Buhari has fully cleansed this nation that you will find time to go take care of yurself. Well, may God see you thru yur trying times of writing incoherent, irrelevant, centrifugal and disjointed comments on this platform. I will remember to intercede for you spiritual during my morning devotions. Pele………9ja needs a new leader like you, na true….kolomental!

      Why then did he deny? Is it not sin to lie?

    • GbemigaO

      Where we always get it wrong in Nigeria is because we only say there is corruption when government money is stolen. Huge amount of money are stolen in private / public companies and we do not complain. In fact , the CEOs stealing are the ones that complain most.

    Not that i am a fan of tb joshua but i dont see whats wrong with a private citizen having a shell company in BVI. Well FIRS might not like that but then again he is a pastor and churches arent taxed so…….

    • Wiirute_Guthoma

      There is everything wrong with the vilest of heathens shamelessly lying and denying owning a shell company

      What about his denial?

    Hmmm. So the God of Men are building their treasures in secret accounts in Offshore havens, while they tell their followers to reserve their enjoyment till heaven? Like Fela said…my people dem go dey follow Imam, follow Pastor…
    These Churches need to be taxed ASAP… they have all been converted to businesses and enterprises….what is FIRS waiting for?

  • Wiirute_Guthoma

    So a shell company is incorporated in 2006 the same year TB Joshua started EmmanuelTV?

    What was the motive? Hide simony proceeds?

    • Otile

      None of your business, aboki.

  • bikky

    Has it been used to do any illegal business?

  • Halima Babangida

    those documents are clearly fake. All you need is go to google and search in google images for sample of British virgin islands incumbency certificate sample and you get plenty of templates. then go to any editing software like photoshop or paint and there you have it, just paste the names you want – voila – a leaked panama papers document! you can also go to google to get some inspiration for a name of a company that you want to use, to make it look authentic. i think i will prepare one and put nicholas ibekwe name there and tomorrow i will publish it that he has an offshore company in panama or the British Virgin Islands. the only problem, it won’t really give me much cheap popularity because his name is only known since he has been persecuting tb joshua.

  • domingo

    You say that TB Joshua has 1 share and the wife 1 other share. There is no company with only 2 shares. The other shareholders who are they ? management, sales, earnings, capital, income statements, balance sheet; you have nothing of all this? Then shut up.

  • Paul

    So Premium Times is faking documents now? This is a new low for Nigerian media.

  • Otile

    Why are they pursuing this man, does he owe the government anything? They have left Yakubu Danjuma who broke the law by siphoning Nigeria’s money while serving in the military but hounded a private man who has no hand in running the government. What a perverted justice system!

    What is the purpose of this machination ? You don’t like the country, you hate Africa and Africans.

    There is no company with only two persons (a couple), only two shares no par value. Who sign the incumbency certificate ?

    Will you continue this fake paper mounting ?

  • Kayode Olufade

    I see papers with names of the pastor but no signatures of the pastor. If memory serves me well I believe a signature is required by the owner of the company. It might be damning accusations but without signatures of the pastor or his kin, it seems somewhat shallow

  • realist

    TB Joshua claims to represent God, so is very wrong for such a man to amass wealth. It is wrong in the eyes of Bible for a truely servant of God to be lovers of material things- earthly treasures which Bible refers to as things belonging to the world. And that the world and everything that belong to the world-sinful self desires, what people see and want, and everything that people are proud of will pass away- 1 John 2: 15-17.
    He claims to raised the dead, but raised d cash is what they are up to. Money is not evil but love of money is d root of all kinds of evils. It is d way of getting the money- pleas, the gimmicks, the begging, the deciet, the lies that are evil. Fraudulent extraction of it from the poor by poor games. Collected for one purpose, then use for another, for personal enrichments. They feed themselves not the flock.
