Several reactions have trailed the recent allegations levelled against the Founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), the late Temitope Balogun Joshua.
British Broadcasting Corporations (BBC) is set to publish a 3-part investigative documentary on the late clergyman and televangelist.
According to reports, the documentary, which will be released on January 8, exposes the atrocities and sexual crimes committed by the renowned clergyman.
A part of the documentary reportedly revealed how some church members and workers shielded the congregation from the truth, which lasted over two decades.
In a snippet which made rounds online, some alleged survivors of abuse, rape and molestation narrated how they were exploited, manipulated, and silenced by TB Joshua.
However, some netizens took to the micro-blogging platform, X, to express their views and opinions on the sexual allegations raised in the snippet.
See some of the reactions below.

@Ola_ayeni_ wrote: “When Mrs Bisi Johnson exposed this man years ago detailing with graphic details the sexual abuse she and others were subjected to by this “prophet” many Nigerians went to social media to drag and bully her. But I’m glad that the truth has finally emerged.”
@Wale_A3 wrote: “No time is the best time but I wish this had been released before the man’s death to allow Hima right of reply.
Anyway, this is an opportunity for people to learn that behind many of the people we respect and try to emulate there could be areas of their lives that are evil.”
