DISCIPLES: The Cult of TB Joshua, Ep 1 - Miracle Maker

BBC Africa Eye documentary: DISCIPLES: The Cult of TB Joshua, Ep 1 - Miracle Maker
Man of God? Or a predatory cult leader? A ground-breaking investigation into the world famous televangelical preacher, TB Joshua, told by the people closest to him: his Disciples.

Two young women in Britain watch a VHS tape that will change the course of their lives forever: a Nigerian preacher can apparently heal the sick, cure cancer and AIDS. They decide to visit his church in Lagos to meet him. Joshua invites the teenagers to become his disciples, joining dozens of other young people who live on the church premises and do his every bidding. But life as a disciple isn’t what they imagined.

The award-winning and critically-acclaimed BBC Africa Eye investigations team unravel a shocking journey into a maze of manipulation and terrifying atrocities – perpetrated by one of the most powerful religious figures of the 21st century. This new major investigation contains detailed first-person testimony and historical footage as the series delves into the experiences of those who were wooed by the world-famous pastor into his religious cult, only to suffer devastating consequences. Twelve survivors go on record, speaking out together for the first time.
