Suspected Crimes Of Nigerian Televangelist TB Joshua Exposed In A BBC Documentary

Must Read

Following a three-part exposé by British Broadcasting Corporation’s Africa Eye on the late televangelist Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua (TB Joshua), social media is ablaze. He is the founder of one of the largest Christian evangelical churches in the world.

Three episodes of the lengthy video, titled “Disciples: The Cult of TB Joshua,” are available on YouTube. Testimonies from former disciples and church employees are featured in the video, which makes grave accusations against the late prophet.

Witnesses, who are primarily from Namibia, South Africa, the United States, and the United Kingdom, assert that TB Joshua coerced them into staying with him for up to 14 years by manipulating and abusing them physically.

Numerous former members of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, including five British, have accused the late Nigerian TB Joshua of crimes including forced abortions and rape. Nearly two decades have passed since the claims of abuse in a private Lagos compound began.

The investigation also looks into the building collapse on September 12, 2014, at Joshua’s guest house at the Synagogue Church of All Nations. At least 116 people lost their lives in the collapse, the majority of them were foreigners.

“It’s a crazy world, there is much more than there is to the eye,” remarked social media user @tahbryce on the X, formerly Twitter, where the story has been leading trends, particularly in Nigeria and Ghana.

When the BBC contacted the current church leadership, they sent over a brief statement that read, “Making unfounded allegations against Prophet TB Joshua is not a new occurrence. None of the allegations was ever substantiated.” But the church did not respond to any of the particular allegations made in the documentary.
