“Prophet” TB Joshua was named the third richest pastor in Nigeria with an estimated net worth of between $10 million and $15 million (about R110 million to R165 million) according to a list compiled by Forbes.

Joshua heads the Synagogue Church of all Nations. The church’s guesthouse in Lagos collapsed on Friday killing dozens of people, including 67 South Africans.

The church accommodates 15 000 worshippers on Sundays.

Topping the Forbes list is Bishop David Oyedepo with an estimated net worth of $150 million (about R1.6 billion).

He founded the Living Faith World Outreach Ministry in Nigeria which is Africa’s largest worship centre with a seating capacity of 50 000.

Oyedepo owns four private jets, a publishing company, a university and a high school.

According to the United States entertainment conduit MonteOz, Joshua is the tenth richest pastor in the world.
