The body of Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, has arrived at the church for the lying-in-state ceremony.
The arrival was greeted by a mammoth crowd waiting in and outside the church premises.
The remains, dressed in white, was carried into the church in a glass casket by a hearse that drove into SCOAN at about 11:00 am.
T.B Joshua’s son-in-law, Bryan, and his daughters Serah, Promise, Hart, and his wife Evelyn were present at the lying-in-state service.
Attendees are directed to undergo Covid-19 formalities before entering the church.
The activities are being beamed live by the church’s media team via Emmanuel TV.
TB Joshua died on Saturday, June 5, a few days to his 58th birthday. He was born on June 12, 1963.
“God has taken His servant Prophet TB Joshua home – as it should be by divine will,” Synagogue Church of All Nations said. “His last moments on earth were spent in the service of God. This is what he was born for, lived for and died for.
“The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations and Emmanuel TV Family appreciate your love, prayers and concern at this time and request a time of privacy for the family.”
The church, family members and well-wishers of the late SCOAN founder held an all-night candlelight procession on Monday night into Tuesday morning.
