Popular Nigerian prophet and televangelist TB Joshua has died.
This is according to social media posts on his ministry’s official Facebook account.
In a post early on Sunday, the church sent out a social media communique stating that the pastor died on Saturday.
The founder of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) was 57 at the time of his death.
“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,” the church’s statement partly reads.
The communique however did not stipulate the true cause of his death.
Below is a full statement as put out by the church.
