The BBC have released an unexpected documentary on the late founder and pastor of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Temitope Balogun, TB Joshua, alleging rape and torture of some of his worshippers before he passed away.
This is coming three years after the clergyman’s sudden death. He died in 2021.
The documentary featured statements from former worshippers and workers under T.B Joshua including five Britons who accuse him of rape and forced abortions in a secretive Lagos compound spanning a period of almost 20 years.
Also, Prophet Joshua was accused of faking his “miracle healings,” which were broadcast to millions of people around the world.
TB Joshua was the founder of SCOAN, which is situated in the Ikotun area of Lagos State.
He died a week before his 58th birthday, on June 5, 2021, after conducting a service.
One of the alleged victims, a British woman called Rae, said she was 21 years old when she abandoned her degree at Brighton University in 2002 and was recruited into the church. She claimed she spent the next 12 years as one of Joshua’s so-called “disciples” inside his maze-like concrete compound in Lagos.
“We all thought we were in heaven, but we were in hell, and in hell terrible things happen,” she told the BBC.
Rae alleged that she was sexually assaulted by Joshua and subjected to a form of solitary confinement for two years. She said the alleged abuse was so severe she said she attempted suicide multiple times inside the compound.
