Multiple unconfirmed reports surfaced on the night of Saturday, June 5, claiming the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Temitope Joshua, better known as Prophet TB Joshua, is dead.
The televangelist allegedly died suddenly on Saturday night in Lagos after concluding a programme at his church.
The church has confirmed the news of his death in a Facebook post.
According to Sahara Reporters, sources confirmed that he fell ill two days ago. The news publication also claimed his body may have been deposited at General Hospital in Isolo, Lagos.
His friend, former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode also confirmed the news of his death.
“The passing of my brother TB Joshua saddens me deeply. At 3.00am this morning I was told by one of his daughters that this was fake news & I tweeted as much. Sadly I was misled. 5 minutes ago the same person called me & confirmed the story.
@GazetteNGR was right & I am in pain.”
