Reports emerged Saturday night about the death of Prophet Temitope Joshua, the General Overseer of Synagogue of Nations church.
But in a swift reaction, former aviation minister who is a bossom friend of the miracle worker preacher has debunked the news of his death.
“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.
As a charismatic preacher, he claims to have the power to perform miracles and healing.
