The death of popular televangelist, Temitope Balogun Joshua famously known as T.B. Joshua has sparked a new wave of disagreement. This is not unconnected with the proposed final resting place of the late cleric.
The traditional ruler of Arigidi Akoko, Oba Yisa Olanipekun, has appealed to the members of SCOAN to allow late Joshua to be buried in his home town.
Oba Olanipekun said the traditional rulers in the four Akoko local governments had decided to give the late pastor a befitting burial, noting that it was logical for T.B Joshua’s remains to be laid to rest in his home town.
He said, “We can handle all his burial arrangements, not only Arigidi but all the Akokos’, comprising four local governments. We don’t joke with him, we know what he has done for us.
Prophet had it in mind that he was coming home, so why would they bury his remains in Lagos? That is what he wants! He is from here. Look at these late pastors, Moses Orimolade was brought to Ikare, Ayo Babalola was taken to Ikeji-Arakeji, Pastor Timothy Obadare was taken to Ilesa in Osun state, among others, so why will ours be different?”
