TB Joshua: BBC Report Lists Six Ways Late Church Leader Faked Miracles

An American social media platform, You Tube has removed the main channel of the Synagogue Church of All Nation (SCOAN) from its platform.

This development is coming amidst sexual and assault allegations levelled against the deceased pioneer of the church, TB Joshua.

Emmanuel TV is used to broadcast the religious activities performed by the church.

Recall that Joshua, who passed away on June 5, 2021, became the subject of a historic investigation by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).

The documentary delved into the late preacher and his church, featuring interviews with at least 30 purported former members and workers of the Synagogue.

However, YouTube said the channel was removed over violation of its policy.
