|TB Joshua Dead at 57|
Temitope Balogun Joshua, also known as Prophet TB Joshua, who is a front line Nigerian preacher and televangelist, has died, family sources say.
TB Joshua, the founder of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), is reported to have died in Lagos on Saturday evening shortly after concluding a programme at his church.
According to a family source who was not ready to be quoted, as an official statement was still being prepared. He was aged 57.
Also the cause of death was not immediately disclosed to the public, but family sources said his remains had been deposited at the morgue and an autopsy would be performed with immediate effect.
He was popular for several decades as a fiery preacher using his platform Emmanuel TV, to attract a large number of Christians from across the world.
In 2014, his church was at the Centre of a multinational investigation following the collapse of a section of his church headquarters in Lagos, which left dozens killed and many more injured.
The Prophet denied allegations of negligence and a trial over the incident which was still underway prior to the news of his demise.
