It was a line up of who-is-who from across the world who graced the occasion as the late Prophet and founder of Synagogue of All Nations (SCOAN), TB Joshua was laid to rest on Friday at the headquarters of his ministry, in Ikotun, Lagos, Nigeria.
The auditorium was filled to capacity with local and international dignitaries who were there to pay their last respect to the prophet.
Speaking at the event, Arakunrin Akeredolu, the governor of Ondo State, said his state has lost an illustrious son. According to him, although many controversies trailed the ministry of the late TB Joshua yet he lived a life that served humanity.
“He was a man who lived for everyone especially the masses. He was a philanthropist and giver. He was criticized but those who criticized him, are they Christ? How did they know he was not serving Christ?” the governor asked rhetorically.
Likewise the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi who was represented by his wife Olori Naomi Ogunwusi said the sudden exit of the prophet shook the world. Yet her consolation is that the prophet will be seen in glory.
Lagos state governor. Babajide Sanwoolu who was represented by the commissioner for home affairs Mudashiru Elegushi said TB Joshua was a man of the people whose presence contributed to the Lagos economy in the area of religion tourism.
He was interred at beautifully designed mausoleum located within the grounds of SCOAN.
