Reports say, Mr Joshua, the founder of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), died in Lagos on Saturday evening shortly after concluding a programme at his church.
Naira Diary learned that the cause of his death was not immediately disclosed to the public, but our sources say his remains had been deposited at the morgue and an autopsy would be performed forthwith.
Prophet TB Joshua is known for predictions. He’s reigned for several decades as a fiery preacher on television, using his platform to attract a large number of Christians from across the world. Emmanuel TV, run by Mr Joshua’s SCOAN, is one of Nigeria’s largest Christian broadcast stations, available worldwide via digital and terrestrial switches.
In 2014, his church was at the centre of a multi-national investigation following a section of his church headquarters in Lagos collapsed, leaving dozens killed and many more injured.
TB Joshua denied allegations of negligence and a trial over the incident was still underway before his demise.
May his soul RIP
