The popular prophet, sources said, passed away around 2am today, Sunday, June 6, 2021, hours after he walked to his apartment midway into the service, presumably to get some rest.
Born on June 12, 1963, Prophet TB Joshua died six days to his 58th birthday.
It was gathered that Joshua had walked out of the church to his apartment when he felt uncomfortable during the service that commenced around 6pm on Saturday.
Although it was not clear at what point he left the hall, it was learnt that he had officiated the service for some hours before he stepped out.
Although the cause of death was not disclosed, the source said the entire place is to be “sanitised”.
According to him, the prophet had asked most of his aides to work from home because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We do not really have details now but I can tell you he was ministering when he suddenly took ill and left the church to rest,” he said.
Odomuso said: “It is true he is dead. I do not know the cause of his death yet. But the information we have is that he was conducting service; along the line, he felt uncomfortable, walked to his apartment himself and never came back.
“The service started in the evening. But it was around 3am that he was pronounced dead by a hospital.”
The church said Joshua’s last words to his members were “watch and pray”.
He was said to have also reminded them there was time for everything before he left the church hall. (The Nation).
