Delta pastor challenges BBC probe on TB Joshua


The General Overseer of Goshen Freedom Tabernacle, Prophet Austin Ariole, has strongly contested the probe initiated by the British Broadcasting Corporation into the late Prophet 

Temitope Joshua, also known as T.B. Joshua, emphasizing that such an investigation lacks credibility. 

Speaking during a service in Effurun, Delta State, Prophet Ariole urged the media to “let the dead rest.”

In response to the BBC’s actions, Prophet Ariole pointedly suggested that the media organization redirects its scrutiny toward the Catholic Church, highlighting issues like the endorsement of gay marriages and the tolerance of masturbation within certain churches. 

He questioned the priorities of the BBC, stating, “Go and probe the Pope that said they can entertain gay marriages. There are churches that have upheld masturbation. Go and check.”

Prophet Ariole expressed his frustration with the timing of the documentary on T.B. Joshua, emphasizing the positive contributions made by the late cleric during his lifetime. 

He stated, “When the late T.B. Joshua was alive, he did good and fed the hungry ones, yet today, they want to probe the dead.” He further questioned the intentions of those involved, asking, “What kind of popularity Bisola and all those accusers want?”

The cleric highlighted the universal aspect of accountability, urging prominent religious figures such as Papa Adeboye and Bishop Oyedepo to recognize their eventual judgment. 

He emphasized, “My concern is Papa Adeboye will be judged. Bishop Oyedepo will be judged. I will be judged. You will be judged that day. We will see the ones that God will say depart from me. It’s not by power. It’s not by might. There’s a book of life that will be opened.”
