Joseph David, a disciple of the late controversial Televangelist and founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet TB Joshua, has said Ajoke, one of the people who testified in the BBC broadcast on TB Joshua’s escapades was never a biological daughter of the late prophet.
He made the claim in a video monitored online by Church Times on Wednesday, January 10.
David also said he was with TB Joshua for 27 years till the time he died and is also a trustee of the SCOAN
He said Ajoke was a few days old when her mother abandoned her by a truck close to the church premises. , “The prophet picked her up after being abandoned and reported the case to the police for the records. But rather than take her to the orphanage the Prophet chose to father her”
David who claimed to be a trustee of SCOAN said TB Joshua had only three biological children but that Ajoke was an adopted daughter.
He said “Ajoke later grew up to the admiration of everybody in SCOAN. But suddenly she became rebellious and everybody was fed up with her until she left. All her records are in the SCOAN archives.”
While stating that it was not necessary to refute the allegations against TB Joshua in the BBC documentary which he claimed were fabricated, he said he had a moral right to set the record straight “on some of the issues people believed as convincing pieces of evidence.”
He denied the allegation that T. B Joshua stopped disciples from marriage while in the Church. ”He only advised that his disciples should pursue their careers first before marriage.”
David said the lady Angeline who testified against the late cleric in the BBC documentary had left the ministry to her country because she wanted to marry a disciple and the prophet did not support her decision. “He left for her country. But came back years later and started screaming at the gate of the church, he raped me, he slept with me, with a hidden camera.” David stated.
The issue of marriage according to David also led to the exit of Agomoh Paul. He said the evangelist was to head the branch of the church in Ghana and had wanted to marry the daughter of a Regional Overseer of the church against the wish of the prophet. The prophet had dissuaded him from marrying the lady. The decision did not go well with Paul.
David said, “TB Joshua soon got to know Paul’s mind was no longer in the Church. Rather than continue to feel disgruntled, the prophet prayed for him and released him to leave the ministry.”
On Bisola, he said, “She was continuously unbearable until one day the Prophet asked her to bring her mother. When her mother came, she thanked the prophet and said to him, I know you are a true man of God. Bisola is my daughter, I know her very well, I don’t think you can tame her.”
