The founder of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) based in Ikotun area of Lagos, Pastor Temitope Balogun Joshua, has been reported dead at the age of 57.

Popularly known as T.B Joshua, the circumstances around his death are still unknown, but he was said to have died on Saturday night after a programme at his church.

His death has however not been confirmed by the church.

Already, Wikipedia in an update on his profile early Sunday morning referred to him in the past tense.

Though the cause of the reported death of the Nigerian preacher and televangelist was not revealed, it was gathered that he suddenly collapsed after retiring to his office after the programme and was rushed to a hospital where he was confirmed dead, and the corpse has been deposited in a mortuary pending an autopsy to determine the cause.

The church has also played host to world leaders, celebrities, football and movie stars from all parts of the world who troop in to get healing, deliverance and other forms of miracles.

Joshua was also been involved in many charity and philanthropic works.
