An unnamed daughter of charismatic pastor, TB Joshua, and the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, on Sunday confirmed the death of the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations in Ejigbo, Lagos State.

The daughter confirmed the development to a former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode.

The former minister said in a tweet that he had earlier dismissed the story as “fake news.”

He said this was based in into from the said daughter, who told him that her father was okay.

He, however, noted that he had to back-track when the same daughter reached him to confirm the story.

He said the story had left him “in pains,” because the preacher was like a brother to him.

In a separate development, the police commissioner said in a statement that Joshua was leading a service when he started feeling uncomfortable.

He said Joshua walked away to his apartment abd never returned.

The commissioner said TB Joshua was officially pronounced dead by a hospital around 3am.

“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.

“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.”

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.
