According to reports, the Man of God died shortly after concluding a programme in his Lagos church on Saturday evening.

Over the years, T.B Joshua would use his Emmanuel TV platform to popularize his ministry through preaching and televised miracles that reached many nations. Through his widespread media empire, he rose to be one of the biggest Christian broadcast stations, reaching millions worldwide.

Through his ministry and supporters across the globe, T.B Joshua had turned his ministries into a multimillion-dollar empire. He was however credited for his philanthropic acts that extended beyond his country’s borders.

“His giving ability was legendary, and he was always involved in extensive humanitarian projects worldwide, using The Synagogue,” wrote a follower following the announcement of his demise by T.B Joshua Ministries social media page.
