Remember this thread? A Modern Day Miracle Man - Establishes the Supernatural Realm
TB Joshua died in 2021, but the evidence is coming out - despite his church’s efforts to suppress it. TB Joshua: Megachurch leader raped and tortured worshippers, BBC finds
Disturbing reading.

…and how he faked miracles
BBC
I wasn’t convinced by the faith healing claims the first time - because it is an area rife with fraud. I was right.
Bribery, fake medical certificates and secretly administering medication are among the techniques listed.
I do think that the “brainwashing” claim is a bit of an exaggeration - not all psychological manipulation deserves that label.

Re: …and how he faked miracles
T B Joshua was a corrupt fraud, and nothing more.
As for your little anecdote, I’d say that mentally ill people can go off like that. I very much doubt that your little jntervention helped her in the least.
(Maybe a serious case of Tourette’s to me. Incurable.)
