Legit.ng compiled some of the reactions below:

@Shadaya_Knight said:

“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?”

@Benedytte wrote:

“Pastors shouldn’t be the reason why you’re a christian… i know some people will start doubting God after this whole issue about TB Joshua if this is You , please reevaluate yourself.”
