The general overseer said the way TB Joshua died indicated that his death was divine.
“According to reports the man of God died after a ministration, that is an indication he died on spiritual duty. Not everyone has such divine home call.’’

The preacher said:
“He lived his life to serve God and humanity, given his philanthropic attitude many of those, who are beneficiaries of his largesse, will miss him for that likewise those healed through his prayers.''
