TB Joshua's alleged scandals spark mixed reactions

Reacting, several netizens expressed their thoughts about the revelations.

Legit.ng captures some comments from X (formerly Twitter) below:

@Nwafresh said:

"People are saying that BBC did a major investigation about TB Joshua's and his staged miracles but go to SCOAN this coming Sunday, and you'll be shocked with the crowd you'll see.. Nigerians are beyond redemption.
"What BBC did is just a free PR."

@Shadaya_Knight commented:

"Whether TB Joshua is guilty of the things he is being accused of or not. Every African should question why the BBC would do a documentary on an African pastor yet not do the same for a European/American billionaire who had a whole island as a hunting ground for pedophiles.
"We are yet to even see or hear a documentary about the alleged attrocities of the royal family as alleged by the late Princess Diana. Why should the BBC write or narrate African stories?"
