Worshippers were on Sunday morning denied access to the Synagogue church of All Nations (SCOAN) at Ikotun in Lagos State by security operatives who occupied strategic positions on the crowded area.
The global Evangelist who tailored his lifestyle on charity, died in Lagos on Saturday after concluding a church programme, ahead of the 58th birthday of the Cleric billed for June 12, 2021.
While some men and women wailed uncontrollably as others laid their hands on their heads in utter shock and disbelief, other worshippers could be heard in a video singing praises to God, others including a Lady, protested the closure of the church.
The Lady whose name is unknown, demanded to know why worshippers were denied access to the church.
The church authority is yet to disclose the reasons, but, Nigerians in social media Community have started sending tributes.
