Popular self-proclaimed Nigerian Prophet, Temitope Balogun Joshua also known as TB Joshua is reported dead.
According to popular Nigeria website leadership.ng, the Prophet died on Saturday evening shortly after concluding a programme at his church. His church is yet to release any statement regarding the news that is now widely reported.
The cause of his death is, however, unknown.
He was the leader and founder of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), a Christian megachurch and a believer of the prosperity message which runs the Emmanuel TV television station from Lagos.
Prophet Joshua was known for his popularity across Africa and Latin America particularly due to his annual convention that hosts thousands of national and international visitors. People travel from around the world to witness and receive the mighty work that God was doing in life.
In November 2019, TB Joshua visited South Sudan on President Kiir’s invitation. He held prayers at J1 and at Kiir’s private residence. He however mysteriously cut short his visit to the country before a planned public crusade that was scheduled to take place at Dr. Garang Mausoleum. The self-proclaimed prophet later released a statement in his home country, Nigeria and alleged that God had instructed him to leave the country immediately and debunked rumors that he was deported overnight.
Prophet TB Joshua was 57 years.
