Wife of late TB Joshua, founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Evelyn, has shared details of how her husband died.
Joshua was announced dead on Saturday after one of his evening services.
Reports said he had suffered a stroke two months before his eventual death.
Speaking with journalists on Sunday, Evelyn said her husband had prayed for three hours before the last service on the mountain and that he showed no sign of illness.
She said the cleric was concerned about prayers for Indians against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Evelyn was quoted as saying, “He ended the race prayerfully. He spent about three hours in prayers before the last service on the mountain and was looking very healthy. He never showed any sign of illness or worry and his main concern was about the prayer line they offered to Indians against the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Afterward, he came up to shower and I left him to have some time to prepare for service as worship had started. Few Minutes later, he stepped out for ministrations. While MInistering. He spoke about a time to come and a time to leave.
“His statements were spiritual and suddenly, he left the stage and went to his inner chambers. I waited a few minutes and thereafter decided to check on him and I met him sitting on the chair like someone reflecting but unconscious. I quickly beckoned on his disciples who came and tried to revive him to no avail. Of a truth, he went home to be with the Lord and left us with a message, watch and pray.”
The couple were married in 1990 and have three children together.
