Johannesburg – Controversial Nigerian journalist and publisher Solomon Izang Ashoms has been found guilty and jailed in Johannesburg following false accusations made against Sandton pastor Alph Lukau. Ashoms is known for attacking high profile men of God like the late prophet T.B Joshua (SCOAN), Pastor Chris Oyakhilome (Love World), ArchiBishop Zondo (Rivers of Living Waters Ministries), and Prophet Shepherd Bushiri (ECG Church).
Upon his final judgement, the Johannesburg court sentenced Ashoms to an effective 20 days of immediate jail time. Ashoms has been found guilty of creating false allegations against Lukau, his wife, his family and Alleluia Ministries church.
Lukau who leads mega church Alleluia Ministries International has been the subject of numerous attacks by the accused. However according to the High Court judge who ruled in the matter, all of Ashoms’ allegations have been proven to be lies and of malicious intent against Lukau.
This is not the first time that the High Court has ruled against Solomon Ashoms and we have a public record of a previous High Court ruling where Ashoms was again found guilty of slander and publicly apologised to Lukau.
