Lagos Police Commissioner (CP) Hakeem Odumosu who confirmed Joshua’s death, said he was officially pronounced dead by a hospital around 3 am.
“It is true he is dead. I do not know the cause of his death yet. But the information we have is that he was conducting service, along the line, he felt uncomfortable, walked to his apartment himself and never came back.
“His people thought he probably wanted to rest or refresh but when they didn’t see him after a long while, they went in search of him and found him in an unusual position.
“The service started in the evening. But it was around 3am that he was pronounced dead by a hospital.”
TB Joshua was known for making predictions and curing various ailments.
