Popular Nigerian clergyman, Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua aka TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), has once again caused a buzz on social media after some of his photos and videos surfaced online.
From indications, the man of God embarked on a holy mission to fight against the coronavirus pandemic. In the photos, TB Joshua was seen in a white garment with a copy of the holy bible on the top of a mountain.
Some videos on the official Twitter page of SCOAN showed the religious leader praying fervently on the mountain.
According to Joshua, he has spent four days on the mountain. He said: “Glory be to God! I have been on this mountain for the past four days and I am going to leave today. This is where I stay; this is where I sleep to know the mind of God and to know what is going on concerning the situation right now in the world.”

Nigerians on social media were quick to react to the photos and videos.
One user said: "After God told TB Joshua that COVID-19 will end on the 27th of March but failed. He has now gone into the bush praying. Whereas in Matthew 6:5-6 God said. do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues & on the street corners to be seen by others."
"Christianity is such an interesting religion. You can give prophecy which doesn't work and still rebrand it to something else. That's how Seven Day Adventist and Jehovah Witnesses came to be. See TB Joshua, after prophecy failure self isolating," another Twitter user wrote.
