Some Kano residents have expressed shock over the death of TB Joshua, founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).
In an interview with newsmen, many residents said Joshua’s demise was unexpected.
Martha Geyus, a resident of Onitsha Road in the Sabon Gari area, said the news came as a shock.
“The news of the sudden death of a man of God like Prophet Joshua, really hit us hard and many people still find it difficult to believe,” Mrs Geyus said.
Lekan Adebo, a printer at Nomansland, said, “It is God’s time, and when God calls someone, there is nothing that can be done about it.”
He added, “We have all heard of the man’s humanly contributions to Nigeria and the African nation as a whole, in one way or the other.”
Adebo explained that people would continue to remember the SCOAN founder for his contributions to religion and humanity through his prayers.
Cynthia Moses, a banker, in her response, said she was a fan of the late cleric and loved watching his programmes because he always offered charity to the needy.
“There is time for everything, a time to live and a time to die,” she said.
Mrs Moses also urged people to be helpful to one another, stressing that everyone will die.
Joshua’s died on Saturday.
