In response to accusations made against the late preacher, YouTube has removed Prophet TB Joshua’s main channel, Emmanuel TV, which was founded the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).

The church use Emmanuel TV to broadcast its religious events.

This comes after TB Joshua was accused of torturing and raping people, according to contentious BBC documentary claims.

Abujapress reports a platform — openDemocracy identified and reported more than 50 abusive videos amplifying abuse against Joshua’s accusers on the video platform.

YouTube said: “The flagged channel was terminated for violating our hate speech policies.”

YouTube has policies against cyberbullying and harassment and specifically forbids harassment against survivors of sexual violence.

Recall the BBC World Service in partnership with openDemocracy broadcast earlier this month a three-part documentary in which whistleblowers who were once senior members of SCOAN went on the record with allegations of sexual and psychological torture, financial fraud, and criminal negligence by Joshua.

As part of the backlash against these abuse survivors, YouTube accounts promoting SCOAN broadcast and shared archival video footage depicting several of these whistleblowers’ experiences while they were church members.

These videos, filmed originally by the church’s Emmanuel TV media department, showcased some of the women who participated in the investigative documentary.
