Nigerian Pastor T.B. Joshua Dies Days Before His Birthday

The Synagogue Church Of All Nations has confirmed the death of its founder, the popular "prophet" T.B. Joshua. Nigerian newspaper the Premium Times is reporting that the church says Joshua spoke during the 'Emmanuel TV Partners Meeting' on Saturday. Emmanuel TV is a cable television station owned by the church. The Nation in Kenya is reporting that Joshua died at 2am on Sunday, June 6, 2021, hours after he left the service and went to his house to rest.

"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 said. Joshua died just days before his 58th birthday.
