Cameroonian Gov’t Bans T.B Joshua as ‘Satanic and son of devil’


The Cameroonian government has blacklisted the Nigerian ‘Prophet’ Temitope Balogun Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations popularly known as T.B Joshua, saying that he is an agent of Satan deceiving unsuspecting members of the public with “diabolical miracles”.

In an official communiqué issued by Cameroon’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Mr. Henri Eyebe Ayissi,most recently titled “The Devil is in the House”, T.B. Joshua is described as a “son of the devil” pretending to be “a man of God”.

Minister Eyebe Ayissi warned hundreds of Cameroonians travelling to Lagos, former capital of Nigeria for miracles in T.B Joshua’s church to desist from taking the trip or face the consequences as Cameroon will not stand by them.

The communiqué written in French read in part: “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs warns those who by naivety or deception of Emmanuel TV’s captivating images, or even those who by hopelessness, envisage taking the pilgrimage to Pastor T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations in Lagos, that they will do so at their own risk.

It adds…“The Cameroonian Government warns these pilgrims that they will face the consequences alone. This is motivated by the painful and shameful fact that Cameroonian men and women, in search of deliverance and blessings, once in that church, find themselves in bestial and pitiable conditions”.

“Women are Molested; pilgrims dispossessed of their belongings by armed robbers and left to sleep on the streets at the mercy of gangs. Many cases of assassinations have even been recorded. And this is without other cases that are not recorded at the Cameroonian Embassy in Lagos with the victims too ashamed to narrate their infernal odysseys once they are out of Hell,” the minister said.

The Foreign Affairs Minister added that…”while the bible asks us to be discreet with gifts and donations to the poor, T.B. Joshua is seen daily dolling out bags of rice to indigent people”.

It has been learnt and reported that hundreds of Cameroonians had sold their properties or borrowed money in the hope of getting miracles in T.B. Joshua’s Church, but only got disappointed in while in Lagos, Nigeria.

African Celebrities Magazine has learnt that with the popularity TB Joshua’s TV station has gained in Cameroon, many Cameroonians especially Christians have been tempted to take the trip and receive healings and sudden blessings as showcased on Joshua’s TV. With Joshua’s TV in many Cameroonian households, his public relations strategy has been successful as many are convinced by the miracles purported to be carried out by T.B Joshua on TV and the flashy images broadcast.

It is in this light that the Cameroonian Government seeks to stop the influence of these TV broadcasts. How far the Minister’s message to such pilgrims will go is anyone’s guess… but in these early days, African Celebrities Magazine has learnt that there are indications a good number of Cameroonians are excited by this Ministerial decision. It comes at a time when many Cameroonians have suffered too much and some lost their lives in search of miracles that most often never come, for this to continue.
