Family Announces Date, Venue For TB Joshua’s Burial
The family of late Temitope Balogun Joshua, (TB Joshua) founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN says the deceased would be buried on July 9, 2021, at his church in Lagos State.
Recall that the renowned Nigerian Prophet died last week Saturday shortly after hosting a programme in the church premises.
Members of the SCOAN and his followers across the country and other parts of the world have continued to mourn his sudden demise.
A member of the family who preferred not to be mentioned in print, disclosed the burial date on Sunday.
According to him, the decision was made after the immediate and extended members of the family of TB Joshua met on Friday to discuss issues regarding the burial.
He revealed that the burial arrangement was scheduled for July 5 through to July 9, 2021.
He said, “The extended family members, his (Joshua) wife and children held a meeting on Friday and it was decided that he should be buried in Lagos and the burial programme will be between July 5 and 9.
“It was on the insistence of the wife and the children that the other family members agree on the place of burial because they said they saw revelations that he should be buried in Lagos. Since they said it was spiritual, the family agreed with them.”
THE WHISPERER reported that community leaders of Arigidi-Akoko, Akoko North-West of Ondo State, the country home of late Prophet T.B. Joshua, had engaged the leaders of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) over the burial of the founder of the church who died earlier this month in Lagos. The community leaders in Ondo State warned that the community would not accept the burial of T.B. Joshua outside the country home.
The Zaki of Arigidi-Akoko, Oba Yisa Olanipekun, declared that Prophet T. B. Joshua, the late founder and leader of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), must be buried in Arigidi-Akoko.
Oba Olanipekun in a media interaction said that the wife and the children must not allow the Church to bury T.B. Joshua in Lagos, insisting that the late Prophet is from Arigidi-Akoko town, and they want his remains back home. He cautioned that the people of Arigidi-Akoko would not take it lightly if Joshua is buried elsewhere; reiterating that they are not going to take it from anybody.
The traditional ruler had declared: “I thank God for what God has done. You know, everything that happens in this life, we give glory to God. God is in control. He gives; He takes. He is the one that gave him to us; He has taken him.
“But my belief is that he has finished the job he came for. Yes, that is my belief. We cannot query God. We have to accept whatever happened.
“Pastor T. B. Joshua was a lovely man. He cared for everybody. We are going to miss him so much. We know no leaf that dropped from the tree that God did not know about it,” he said.
