Agomoh Paul, one of at least twenty-five witnesses in the BBC Eye’s three-part documentary on the supposed double life of the late televangelist Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, aka TB Joshua, claimed that he was interested in using miracles to enslave not only Africans but also Westerners.
According to HowNG, a BBC investigation into claims of trauma, fake miracles, sexual assault, and physical abuse at the hands of the late Nigerian preacher resulted in at least 25 eyewitness accounts and was made public on Monday.
Speaking to the BBC’s Africa Eye, Paul noted that he was very close to the late prophet.
“I was very close to him. I was just like the number two in the synagogue church of all nations.
“There are certain things he told me personally that I know many of the disciples never knew.
“He knows exactly what he wants to achieve. He had a special interest in the ‘Oyinbo’, the whites.
The term “Oyinbo” is a known slang in Nigeria used to refer to the whites and Europeans, generally Westerners.
Continuing, Paul said, “In 1996, one of the major pastors came from South Africa. When they were leaving, he gave them more than 200 VHS videos to take home to give to people. Videos of miracles, videos of confessions, videos that will fill your head.
“I said, this is too expensive. He laughed;
Quoting TB Joshua, Paul said, ‘You think I’m a fool? I know what I’m doing.’
“A time will come when this synagogue church is going to shoot out from South Africa to the whole world.”
Paul also noted, “The greatest thing that pumped Synagogue church was when the foreigners started coming. This was strategic, and it was planned.
Another witness identified as Bisola said, “He used white people to market his brand. having a white man or white woman around, is like…you have achieved.”
Paul who also claimed to be among the ‘disciples’ said, “He (TB Joshua) had a grand plan. Not all disciples knew what was happening. It was a secret.
“He (TB Joshua) told me personally that what the white people did to our forefathers hurt him, that whatever it would take him, he said that he would bring them here.
“He will make sure that he will enslave them, that they will serve him.
“That was one of the motivation factors in him.”
“I will teach them a lesson. I’ll show them,” Paul said, quoting TB Joshua.
Adding, Bisola said, “I was there in that meeting. He wants to use white people to be his slaves.
“Westerners, they enslaved his forefathers. So he, himself, now wants to enslave them. He said it loud and clear.”
