Joshua reportedly died on Saturday night in Lagos after concluding a programme at his church.
The cause of his death has not been officially announced but sources disclosed that he fell ill two days ago.
Pastor T.B Joshua died at the age of 57 while plans were underway to celebrate his 58th birthday. He wrote a message recently about his 58th birthday on Facebook saying that it will not be easy for him to celebrate his birthday.
He wrote: “As things stand, you may have realised it will not be easy for me to celebrate my birthday under the present circumstances. Some of the people who want to come are troubled by the situation all over the world. We see their fear and their worry. I feel their pain; I feel their worry.
“Therefore, let us dedicate this day to prayer and fasting. Don’t forget the needy. By the grace of God, more birthdays are ahead. God bless you! Emmanuel. Jesus is Lord! Happy Birthday.”
Joshua is famous across Africa, Europe and America. His YouTube channel, Emmanuel TV, had over 1,000,000 subscribers and was the world’s most viewed Christian ministry on the platform before it was suspended.
His body is believed to have been deposited at General Hospital in Isolo, Lagos.
