The owner of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Pastor T.B. Joshua, reportedly died one week before his birthday party.
The Prophet died on his way to hospital on Saturday night, after conducting a church service with his members.
The cleric was born June 12th, 1963, and planned to mark his 58th birthday with fasting and prayer.
“June 12. As you know, I’m a man of God. So, the word of one is the word for all,” he wrote in a Facebook message on Friday morning.
“Therefore, let us dedicate that day with prayer and fasting. Don’t forget the needful”.
Balogun also made it clear that he was not ready to elaborate any ceremony “under the present circumstances with Nigeria”.
The preacher who shot to prominence miracles on Emmanuel TV was also a well-known philanthropist for his committee.
His net wealth is estimated to be around 15 million dollars.
“As things stand, you may have realised it not easy for Joshua to celebrate his birthday under the present situation. Some of the people who want to come are troubled by the problem all over the world. We see their fear and worry due to Covid-19. I feel their pain,” he added.
