Nigerian online newspaper, The Cable, reports that famed Nigerian televangelist, TB Joshua, who died on Saturday June 5, 2021, suffered a stroke two months ago, and was sent out of the country to undergo treatment.
The paper said TB Joshua was airlifted via an air ambulance from Nigeria to Turkey to receive treatment.
Nonetheless, the cause of the preacher’s death is yet to be known officially as no connection has been established between the said condition and his sudden death.
TB Joshua died at age 57, exactly a week to his 58th birthday, which he has spoken of in great anticipation of the celebration by way of prayer, fasting and remembrance of the needy.
