Emmanuel TV, the television channel founded by the late Nigerian televangelist Temitope Babatunde Joshua well known as TB Joshua, will cease broadcasting on MultiChoice platforms DStv and GOtv on January 17.

MultiChoice confirmed that Emmanuel TV would be removed from the DStv and GOtv platforms.

Emmanuel TV will leave StarSat and other pay-TV providers as well.

The popular Christian TV station Emmanuel TV (DStv 390) announced its withdrawal from MultiChoice’s DStv and GOTV, as well as other pay-TV services, effective January 17, 2024.

The pastor, who died on June 5, 2021, is the subject of a three-part documentary by the British Broadcasting Corporation, Africa Eye, which chronicles the alleged horrors and sexual crimes committed by him.

At least 30 former members and workers of TB Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) accused him of abuse, harassment, rape, manipulation, torture, and staged miracles.

The SCOAN on the other hand, responded to the BBC documentary on its founder, late TB Joshua.

The church called the documentary baseless, adding that the people interviewed in it were unknown to the church.

The church’s Public Affairs Director, Dare Adejumo, issued a statement in response to the viral documentary.

SCOAN described the documentary as unfounded, noting that the characters interviewed in the report were unknown to the church.

It said that to investigate and publish or broadcast reports was a central kernel in journalism but to do so outside the ethics and fundamental principles of the profession was an aberration.

According to the church, journalism as a societal watchdog requires fairness, balancing and objectivity in order to command dignity, honour and respect as the fourth estate of the realm.

The church said the statement was aimed at disabusing public minds from the report.

The statement, according to the church, was intended to disabuse the public of the story.
