The Synagogue Church of All Nations has claimed that millions of people across 195 countries have paid tributes to its late General Overseer, Prophet Temitope Joshua.
During a press briefing g in Lagos to officially announce his burial programme on Tuesday, the ministry revealed that the clergyman's death has increased the church's followership on social media by over 600,000.
Leading the briefing, a Briton, Dr Gary Tonge, who claimed to be a friend of the ministry, said TB Joshua's death on Saturday, June 5, 2021, just seven days to his 58th birthday, was by divine will.
He said, "His supernatural call home was met with an outpouring of millions of testimonies and tributes from 195 countries – representing every tribe, every tongue and every nation on the face of the earth.
"The news of his departure also led to an increase of 600,000 followers on the TB Joshua Ministries Facebook Page, reaching a total of 6,200,000 — the largest of any religious figure in Africa.
"In Prophet TB Joshua's own words, 'The beauty of our achievement is when we no longer live and our achievement is still there, continuing to linger on in the eyes and ears of children yet unborn'."
He stated that there would be a candlelight procession in honour of the cleric on July 5, while the lying-in-state would be on July 8, from 11am to 5pm.
Tonge said TB Joshua would be buried in Lagos on July 9.
