The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) has vehemently refuted the claims made in a recent BBC documentary, accusing its late founder, TB Joshua, of various crimes, including rape. In a statement released by the church’s Public Affairs Director, Mr Dare Adejumo, the church aimed to dispel any negative perceptions arising from the controversial report.

The documentary, produced by BBC World Services investigative unit, Africa Eye, presented what SCOAN termed as “weird and strange episodes of atrocities” against TB Joshua. The church acknowledged the role of journalism in investigating and reporting, but emphasized the necessity of adhering to ethical principles in the process.

According to SCOAN, the BBC compromised the fundamental tenets of journalism, forsaking fairness, balance, and objectivity in favor of what the church labeled as “fictional narratives and propaganda.” The church accused the BBC of transforming itself into a tool for a hatchet job, comparing its actions to “gangsters in the garb of journalism” with a destructive ulterior motive for personal gains against a perceived enemy.
