An unconfirmed report is claiming that Pastor Temitope Balogun Joshua popularly known as T. B. Joshua, has died.
He reportedly died in Lagos on Saturday evening shortly after concluding a programme at his church.
But his friend, former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode debunked the report as fake news.
“The story that is being peddled around by some fake news merchants that my dearest friend and brother, Prophet T.B. Joshua of SCOAN, is dead is FALSE!
“It is FAKE NEWS in its most hideous form. The Prophet is alive and well and he shall live long and prosper. Glory hallelujah!”.
Reports had said the Founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations(SCOAN) died after concluding a church programme.
The report not confirmed by his church went further to claim that his body has been deposited in a Lagos mortuary.
Joshua would be 58 on June 12. He was born on June 12, 1963 in Arigidi-Akoko, in Ondo State.
TB Joshua was the leader and founder of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), a Christian megachurch that runs the Emmanuel TV television station from Lagos.
