Bisola Johnson, a former assistant of founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations Prophet TB Joshua, has raised doubts about the sustainability of the church after the prophet’s death on June 5.
Johnson has been accusing Joshua of rape since she left the church years ago after spending more than a decade there.
In 2019, she said, “I was sexually molested by TB Joshua. I was trapped in Synogague church for 14 years.”
She also alleged that children, ages eight, 11 and 14, were molested inside the church.
Speaking on Thursday, June 24 with US-based Sinai Mountain Radio, Johnson said, “I have been talking about TB Joshua since 2008, but he used all the power and whatever he had to suppress my voice; that even talking to you today is by the grace of the almighty God, I would have been dead. He has tried many times to take me out.”
Johnson authored a book in 2015 titled TB Joshua I know: Deception of the Age Unmasked.
She alleged that Joshua’s woes began after his daughter Sarah married Tanzanian Bryan Moshi in December 2020. “The covenant with TB Joshua forbids marriage,” she said.
Johnson added that she believes the Synagogue church “will not stand the test of time” after Joshua’s death.
The church has been shut since Joshua passed on on June 5. He will be buried in mid-July in a week-long funeral which will be streamed live on the church’s cable channel Emmanuel TV.
The Synagogue church had in 2019 absolved Joshua of the rape allegations.
The church said Johnson has been unstable for so many years, and urged the public to disregard her claims.
A series of videos released by the church showed she always returned after each allegation to ‘confess’ and recant.
But Johnson told Premium Times in 2019 that she was “under bewitchment” and “hypnotism” to do all the videos.
