TB Joshua: BBC report lists ways late church leader faked miracles

A recent investigative report by BBC Africa Eye maintains that the late Nigerian televangelist, TB Joshua, engaged in the fabrication of miracles within his Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN). According to the report, a network of deceptive practices was allegedly employed by Joshua, with the BBC listing six ways in which the late church leader purportedly faked miracles.

The BBC reached out to SCOAN with the allegations, but no response was received, although the church had previously denied similar claims against Joshua. The church insisted that none of the allegations made against Prophet TB Joshua had ever been substantiated.

BBC Africa’s investigation, drawing insights from over 25 insiders across various countries, revealed deceptive tactics employed within SCOAN. The report, published on the BBC Eye Website, alleged that Joshua, who passed away in 2021 at the age of 57, was involved in fraudulent activities.

The report outlined six methods through which TB Joshua allegedly deceived worshippers, sourced from individuals who had worked closely with the late church leader. One of the highlighted tactics was the existence of an exclusive section within the church called the “emergency department,” responsible for making the miracles appear authentic. Agomoh Paul, who supervised the department for a decade, claimed that the team was trained by medical doctors. He disclosed that individuals with serious ailments were turned away, while those with normal open wounds, which could heal, were brought in to be presented as cases of cancer.

In 2004, Nigeria’s broadcast regulator banned the airing of pastors’ supposed miracles on live terrestrial TV, leading Joshua to launch Emmanuel TV on satellite and later online. The global success of his television and social media network made it one of the world’s most prominent Christian platforms, reaching millions across continents. Despite the allegations and the BBC’s investigative findings, the church maintained its denial of any wrongdoing by TB Joshua.
