A tweet from Nigerian-born American academician, Uju Anya concerning the death of Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of the Synagogue of All Nations has surfaced online.
Naija News earlier reported that Anya had come under serious criticism after making a post on Twitter wishing the recently deceased Queen Elizabeth of England an excruciating death. It seems that Anya who is an associate professor at Carnegie Mellon did not care for the late T.B Joshua as she made a tweet on June 6, 2021, a day after his death calling the Clergyman a charlatan” who deceived people to get into their wallets. Joshua died on June 5, 2021, after an Emmanuel TV partners’ meeting in Lagos. He was well known for performing exorcisms and was frequently called upon to provide healing and deliverance. Many people, including his closest mentees, were shocked to learn of Joshua’s passing. The clergyman died in his sleep. Reacting to his death, Anya wrote: “Celebrating the well deserved death of lying thieving charlatan TB Joshua, who cheated millions out of people in their most desperate days with fake prophecies and cruel promises of miracles and cures for diseases from which he couldn’t even save his sorry self. Rot in pi**.” Commenting further on Joshua, Anya said he was a “monster” and she had no obligation to Joshua’s family to treat him with respect. “For those coming with ‘don’t speak ill of the dead’ business, know where I stand on your tone policing nonsense. I don’t owe the family or people who loved TB Joshua my respect or silence about all the harm he caused. Just because they’re mourning a monster doesn’t mean I should,” she said.
