 TB Joshua’s Family Reveals Burial Date

A family member of the deceased founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Pastor Temitope Joshua, has said the late cleric may be laid to rest on July 9, 2021 on his church premises in Lagos State.

Recall that the prophet dies last week in Lagos State a few days to his 58th birthday.

The family member who spoke to Punch on the condition of anonymity on Sunday, said the burial date was part of the resolutions of a meeting by immediate and extended members of the family of TB Joshua at the residence of the deceased in Lagos State on Friday.

The resolution is contrary to the expectation of the monarch of Arigidi Akoko, Oba Yisa Olanipekun, and some other traditional rulers in the Akoko area, who wanted the late pastor buried in his hometown, Arigidi Akoko.

The traditional rulers noted that if the late cleric was taken to his hometown for burial, it would further give the town global recognition as the deceased’s worshippers all over the world would want to visit it to see his tomb and would also make the church continue the project already embarked upon by the late founder.

But the family member said the wife, Evelyn, and the children of the late cleric prevailed on the other family members over the burial place and date at the meeting.

The source said the burial arrangement would take place between July 5 and 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.”

However, one of the community leaders in Akokoland, Chief Ladi Bello, said since the decision had been taken on the burial arrangement of the deceased, the ongoing project left behind in Arigidi Akoko by the late pastor should not be abandoned.

“Now that the burial will take place in Lagos, his legacies must be sustained while his projects in Akokoland should not be abandoned,” Bello urged.
