At 3.00am this morning I was told by one of his daughters that this was fake news & I tweeted as much. Sadly I was misled. 5 minutes ago the same person called me & confirmed the story. @GazetteNGR was right & I am in pain. pic.twitter.com/g6C1XhPKLB — Femi Fani-Kayode (@realFFK) June 6, 2021 TB Joshua was someone who actually touched the lives of many poor people. Unlike many others, He was one pastor who actually reached out to poor people and always tried to help them. It’s so sad to read TB Joshua is dead. It’s actually quite sad.
