SCOAN denounces BBC documentary on late TB Joshua

The Synagogue Church of all Nations has responded to the controversial BBC documentary about its founder, the late Temitope Babatunde Joshua, popularly known as Prophet TB Joshua.

In a statement signed by its Public Affairs Director, Dare Adejumo.

In the statement SCOAN faulted the broadcasting station and its documentary, describing it as baseless and highlighting that the individuals interviewed in the report were not affiliated with the church.

It is worth noting that the BBC documentary, which was released on Monday, made news headlines with serious allegations against TB Joshua, including accusations of rape by some members.

However, SCOAN has said: “BBC World Service’s investigative unit, codenamed Africa Eye, came out this week with weird and strange episodes of atrocities against the late founder of SCOAN.”

The church emphasized that the investigation was carried out in a manner that deviated from the ethical and foundational principles of the journalism profession.

As per the church’s perspective, journalism, being a societal watchdog, necessitates the practice of fairness, balance, and objectivity to uphold its esteemed position as the fourth estate of the realm.

The statement added: “BBC has compromised these lofty principles by descending into fictional narratives and propaganda, thus turning itself into a weapon for a hatchet job as gangsters in the gab of journalism with a destructive ulterior motive for personal gains against a perceived enemy.

“Only BBC can best explain why it woefully deviated from true journalism and chose to be dishing junks and feeding the public with stones called bread by its offensive and disenchanted reports of disgruntled elements

“This to say the least, is insulting to our professional and public intelligence.

One thing is very obvious, hundreds of BBC charades cannot rubbish the indelible footprints of TB Joshua’s legacies on earth again.

“Some of those identified that there are relics of homosexual and lesbian associates. My findings further show that everything the BBC put together is strange to SCOAN.

“One other clearly illogical thing in the charade is the BBC categorical statement that the man of God was involved in all the abuse for over two decades!

“How can that be in a nation governed by law? It shows the station’s crude disrespect and bizarre perception of Nigeria.

“Where were all those shameless interviewees in all the decades? Was it when the man passed on that they suddenly became awake or came back to their senses? Only a fool will have respect for such charlatans,”
