Nigerian singer, Victor Adere professionally known as Victor AD, has countered the BBC’s three-part episode documentary accusing the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Temitope Balogun Joshua aka TB Joshua, of performing staged miracles and torturing, abusing and traumatising his members.
Victor AD, on Wednesday, via a tweet on his X handle claimed that his family has been attending SCOAN since he was six and healed of a skin disease.
He also noted that TB Joshua restored his mum’s hand which was supposed to be amputated due to a gunshot wound and his sister who was healed from blindness during secondary school days.
The “wetin we gain” crooner wrote, “Prophet TB Joshua fake ke?
“Person wey God use heal me from skin disease at the age of 6 (sic) restored my mum’s hand that was supposed to be amputated due to gunshot wound, or is it my sister that got healed from blindness during her primary school days.
“So many wonderful deeds!! Which of these are fake or staged? When my family and I were homeless he gave us shelter and fed us. God is not a man.”
Being unconvinced by the allegations, Victor AD said, “Say whatever you like. E no go change God from being God (sic).”
Meanwhile, a viral video has shown the moments Victor AD was trying to heal the mother in a video call after he got what he described as “anointing water” from the church and spraying it on the screen of his phone while screaming “Be healed” upon sighting his mother’s “injured hand”.
The Social media has gone agog, following a three-part expose on the alleged secret lives of the late televangelist, Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua (TB Joshua) by the British Broadcasting Corporation’s Africa Eye.
The over-150-minute long video, divided into three episodes and published on YouTube, titled, “Disciples: The Cult of TB Joshua”, showed video testimonies of several witnesses levelling multiple damning allegations against the late prophet.
The testimonies, from former disciples and church workers, alleged that the prophet allegedly manipulated and physically abused them into staying with him for many years.
Most of them, mostly from the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Namibia, and South Africa stated that they spent between 10 and 14 years in the Synagogue based on that manipulation.
However, reacting to the allegation, a public affairs analyst and member of the SCOAN, Mr Dare Adejumo, on Tuesday, faulted the BBC documentary on the Founder of the church.
He described the documentary as unfounded, noting that the characters interviewed in the report were unknown to the church.
