Pastor Temitope Balogun, Joshua the founder of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), has died in Lagos on Saturday evening shortly after concluding a programme at his church.
The cause of death is still unknown but family sources said his remains had been deposited at the morgue and an autopsy would be performed forthwith. Joshua was 57.
Mr Joshua reigned for several decades as a fiery preacher on television, using his platform to attract a large number of Christians from across the world. Emmanuel TV, run by Mr Joshua’s SCOAN, is one of Nigeria’s largest Christian broadcast stations, available worldwide via digital and terrestrial switches.
In 2014, his church was at the centre of a multi-national investigation after a section of his church headquarters in Lagos collapsed, leaving dozens killed and many more injured.
