How T.B Joshua died six days to his 58th birthday – Lagos Police Commissioner


The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, has given an account of the happenings that occurred before Prophet Temitope Joshua passed on.

Joshua, founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) died in the wee hours of Sunday, six days to his 58th birthday.

Odumosu who obviously gleaned the information about events that happened leading up to the pastor’s death from eyewitnesses, said in an interview he granted The Nation, “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.

“His people thought he probably wanted to rest or refresh but when they didn’t see him after a long while, they went in search of him and found him in an unusual position.

“The service started in the evening. But it was around 3am that he was pronounced dead by a hospital.”
