Popular Nigerian televangelist, Prophet TB Joshua, spent his last days in the service of God and left behind a legacy of service and sacrifice to God’s kingdom.
This is according to an official statement from his church, the Synagogue Church of All Nation (SCOAN) concerning his sudden death.
Temitope Balogun Joshua died on Saturday evening at age 57.
Close sources say he died not long after he had finished a programme at his church in Lagos.
The Church in its statement via their official social media handles, said, “God has taken His servant Prophet TB Joshua home – as it should be by divine will. His last moments on earth were spent in the service of God. This is what he was born for, lived for and died for… Prophet TB Joshua leaves a legacy of service and sacrifice to God’s Kingdom that is living for generations yet unborn.”
TB Joshua’s Ministry is globally recognized through his television platform, Emmanuel TV, run by the church as one of Nigeria’s biggest Christian broadcast stations available worldwide on digital and terrestrial switches.
In 2014, his church was at the centre of a multi-national investigation after a section of his church headquarters in Lagos collapsed, leaving dozens killed and many more injured.
Mr. Joshua denied allegations of negligence and a trial over the incident was still underway prior to his demise.
For decades, he continued to minister healing and deliverance in his church attracting many people from different parts of the world including presidents and celebrities.
Ghana’s former President, the late Prof. John Evans Atta Mills and former Black Stars goalkeeper, Richard Kingson, have all made appearances at the SCOAN and shared different testimonies.
