A person that dies in this manner, according to doctors, could have suffered from seizure of the heart which leads to cardiac arrest, a silent killer known to have led to the death of millions of persons around the world. It is a major cause of death accounting for about 17 million deaths yearly across the world.
More revelations have emerged on how popular televangelist, Prophet TB Joshua, of the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN) died. Family sources said they met him dead sitting on a chair like someone in deep reflection, but he was dead.
Medically, this suggests he may have slumped, became unconscious and died without any trace of known ailment.

His wife’s account that he quit preaching suddenly and went into his office has fuelled the theory of medical scientists that he may have been a victim of cardiac arrest.
His wife, Mrs. Evelyn Joshua, shortly after his death took to Twitter: “Losing a loved one is never easy; whether sudden or foreseen. It is always heart-breaking. Grief can wreak havoc on our overall well-being. That’s why it’s important to stay rooted to the Almighty. Only He can lessen our heartache and comfort us in these times. Seek refuge in him.”
Meanwhile, the United Apostolic Church of Christ (UACC) worldwide, on Monday joined others across the world to mourn the international televangelist, Prophet Temitope Babatunde-Joshua aka T.B. Joshua.
The UACC’s President and General Overseer, Dr James Bayo-Owoyemi, said that unknown to human, T.B.Joshua must have concluded his earthly mission and had to leave when the ovation was loudest.
James-Owoyemi, while eulogising the life and times of the popular televangelist, told NAN that the Christian world and indeed Nigerians had lost an intercessor and bridge builder between God and human.
“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.
“He lived his live 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.
“As we bear good witness to his mission on earth in the same manner angels will bear witness for him before God,” he said.
The gospel preacher, who decried the high rate of killings in the country, asked Nigerians to love and tolerate one another for peace.
He noted that the scripture, ” to live is for Christ and to die is gain” was fulfilled in the life and times of the founder of SCOAN as a man of God.
He added that, “although T.B. Joshua has gone; no doubt, he has left behind legacies that would speak for him for a very long time”.
