Family of late clergyman TB Joshua to announce preparations for his burial in due course

The family of founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations Prophet TB Joshua on Tuesday gathered in Lagos State to plan his burial.

Joshua died on June 5 after a church programme in Lagos. He would have clocked 58 on June 12.

An uncle of the deceased Salisu Musa told PUNCH that the burial date had not been decided by the family.

He said, “We (family members) have just arrived in Lagos; we are to hold a meeting to decide on the burial arrangement. As soon as we meet and decide, we shall let you know. “

The family is drawn between heeding to the wish of the church’s members to bury him in Lagos and the traditional ruler of Joshua’s hometown Arigidi Akoko in Ondo State who wants him buried in his native home.

Meanwhile, the monarch of Ibaram Akoko Oba Olusegun Atibioke has called on the Ondo State Government to consider immortalising the late cleric by naming an institution in the state after Joshua.

He also urged Balogun family to bury the late pastor in his hometown.

It was gathered that residents of Arigidi Akoko organised a procession round the town on Tuesday to honour the departed pastor.

Joshua carried out several humanitarian projects in his hometown and neighbouring communities before his demise.
