Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Videos and photos are emerging from the ongoing burial ceremony of Prophet TB Joshua happening at the Ikotun area of Lagos state.
Many dignitaries are present as people maintain strict COVID-19 measures by wearing facemasks. Going by the turban of some of the guests, it seems dignitaries from the Arab world are also in attendance.
Air of solemnity
Solemnity rents the air as the sounds of camera clicks from journalists punctuate sounds from the piano.
Watch one of the videos from Dele Momodu below:
A BBC News Pidgin post on Instagram also shared photos from the ceremony. In them, one could see some of the VIPS at the ceremony up close.
Below is the post:
