A former Minister of Aviation and Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Femi Fani-Kayode, has confirmed the death of the Founder of The Synagogue, Church of all Nations, SCOAN, Prophet T. B. Joshua, .
Fani-Kayode confirmed this in a special farewell message to the very popular healing Prophet, on Sunday morning.
Prophet Joshua died on Saturday evening, shortly after finishing a Church programme, according to reports.
His death came as a rude shock to many, who seriously doubted the early reports of his death.
Though there is no official report on the cause of his death, and his remains have since been deposited in a Mortuary.
Fani-Kayode wrote on Facebook: “The passing of my dearest brother Prophet TB Joshua saddens me deeply. At 3.00am this morning I was told by one of his daughters that this was fake news and I tweeted as much.
“Sadly I was misled. Five minutes ago the same person called me back and confirmed the story. @GazetteNGR was right and I am in shock and pain.
“He was a wonderful, kind, generous, wise and loving man who was undoubtedly one of God’s ‘end-time’ Generals and who did so much for those in need and the Body of Christ.My family and I shall miss him dearly as he soars to the stars and takes his place amongst the angels and saints in Heaven.
“The Bible says “to live is Christ and to die is gain”. It says “O grave where is thy power? O death, where is thy sting?”
“Rest in peace God’s great general. You taught me the power and importance of faith, courage, love and strength even in the most difficult times! I shall miss you.”
