Nigeria's prophet TB Joshua deletes Clinton win prophecy

Lagos - A prediction by Nigeria's influential TV evangelist TB Joshua that Hillary Clinton would win the US presidential election has been deleted from his Facebook account.

The post was reportedly removed on Wednesday morning after the prophecy turned out to be a lie.  

The acclaimed man of God came under heavy criticism following his inaccurate prophecy regarding the winner of the just concluded presidential election.

Joshua had predicted that Clinton would win the election in a "narrow victory" against her Republican rival Donald Trump.

He made the disclosure while speaking to a packed congregation at the Scoan  on Sunday.

TB Jushua claimed that he saw it all in a vision 10 days ago.

According to what he saw, the female candidate would win the election.

But, on Wednesday morning, in a closely contested election, Trump was declared victorious, after capturing Wisconsin's 10 electoral votes, putting him over the 270 threshold.

Social media users took to Twitter on Wednesday to mock Joshua's inaccurate prophecy.
