A popular Nigerian cleric, Prophet TB Joshua, has died. The man of God breathed his last on Saturday evening a few days to his 58th birthday.

Business Post gathered that the Lagos-based priest, who was born on June 12, 1963, in Arigidi-Akoko, Ondo State, died shortly after conducting an evening service with his members at his church headquarters, the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN), in Ikotun, Lagos.

It was said that while delivering his sermon, he did not show any sign of weak health and was looking agile.

However, he informed his congregation that “[There is] time for everything, time to come here for prayer and time to return home after the service.”

Confirming his demise, the TB Joshua Ministries, the official Facebook page of SCOAN, said in a message on Sunday morning that the man of God is truly gone,

“Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.” – Amos 3:7

“On Saturday 5th June 2021, Prophet TB Joshua spoke during the Emmanuel TV Partners Meeting: ‘Time for everything – time to come here for prayer and time to return home after the service.’

“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.

“As Prophet TB Joshua says, ‘The greatest way to use life is to spend it on something that will outlive it.’

Prophet TB Joshua leaves a legacy of service and sacrifice to God’s Kingdom that is living for generations yet unborn.

“The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations and Emmanuel TV Family appreciate your love, prayers and concern at this time and request a time of privacy for the family,” the church posted.

The late TB Joshua had a large following in Africa, Latin American, Europe and Asia and some of them come to his church in Lagos to seek a solution to their problems, including high-profile persons.
