Prophet TB Joshua was attacked from around the world for making a false prophecy that the coronavirus would end on 27 March.
He has broken his silence and came up with an explanation.
On Sunday, the Nigerian prophet had an exclusive interview with Emmanuel TV and responded to questions sent from all over the world.
He explained that when he said the virus would end, he wasn’t talking about throughout the world, he was only talking about Wuhan in China, where the virus first began.
“I am not a politician, I just have to give you the message as the Spirit gave it to me,” he said.
He added that the world leaders and scientists keep promoting fear and panic.
“They know what they have done. Now innocent people are dying, especially the elderly. We can’t go near them because of fear and panic. Nothing is worth the blood of innocent people. There is no acceptable excuse for doing this,” said Joshua
