Characters in BBC’s documentary on TB Joshua unknown to us —Synagogue church

The Synagogue Church of all Nations, SCOAN, yesterday, countered the BBC documentary on the late Temitope Babatunde Joshua, known as TB Joshua, founder of SCOAN.

SCOAN described the documentary against TB Joshua as unfounded and that the characters interviewed in the report were unknown to the church.

The church, in a statement by its Public Affairs Director, Mr Dare Adejumo, said the statement was aimed at disabusing public minds from the report.

Recall that the BBC released a highly controversial and damning documentary on the late TB Joshua, on Monday, accusing him of various crimes, including rape, against some members.

Reacting to the documentary, SCOAN said that to investigate and publish or broadcast reports was a central kernel of journalism, but to do so outside the ethics and fundamental principles of the profession was an aberration.

The statement reads: “BBC World Services investigative unit, code-named Africa Eye, came out this week with weird and strange episodes of atrocities against the late founder of SCOAN.

“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 the BBC can best explain why it woefully deviated from true journalism and chose to be dishing junk 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.

“Those beneficiaries are all over the place and cannot be disputed; they are lining up and responding angrily to this imperialist broadcasting station.

“Many of them are in the UK, the home base of the BBC, but which its jaundiced investigative eyes cannot see, but only the suborned narrators!

“Myriads of broken homes reconciled by TB Joshua are also crying foul of BBC’s broadcast of iniquity. Uncountable hopeless children drawn from different parts of the world—some brought by their parents while others were picked from drug joints or brothels—who have gotten their destinies restored are also pissed off by the offensive reports.
”BBC has shot itself in the foot by its compromise and roadside journalism.”

It said the BBC would not have lost anything if it had gone to the church even in disguise as visitors to have direct experience of what was happening in the church instead of relying on disgruntled and manipulated individuals, some of whom were never known before in SCOAN.

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

“One other illogical thing in the charade is the BBC’s categorical statement that TB Joshua, a 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.”
