Family plans TB Joshua’s burial for July 9

The remains of the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Pastor Temitope Joshua may  be buried on July 9, 2021.

This date was picked at a family meeting held in Lagos.

His burial is expected to take place in the premises of his church in Lagos State.

The Late Televangelist died last week in Lagos State at the age of 57

It was gathered from a member of his family that date was fixed after the immediate and extended members of the family of TB Joshua met at the residence of the deceased in Lagos State on Friday.

A member of the family, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said this is contract 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 monarchs wanted the late cleric was taken to his hometown for burial.

They pointed out that 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 to 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
