The death of Joshua, one of Africa’s most influential preachers, is already taking a toll on the church as SCOAN strategises to find his successor.
The Africa Report visited the headquarters of SCOAN in Nigeria’s commercial capital, Lagos, on Thursday 24 June and found that the 57-year-old left to the world beyond with some of what the church is popular for – at least for now.
Doors shut to worshippers and visitors
All the main doors remained closed to worshippers who continued to troop in from across Nigeria and beyond. They were used to daily church programmes and Joshua’s regular lectures but all of that has changed now as everything, apart from the condolence register, is closed.
