Social media users were quick to react to the photos and videos.
One user said: "After God told TB Joshua that COVID-19 will end on the 27th of March but failed. He has now gone into the bush praying. Whereas in Matthew 6:5-6 God said. do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues & on the street corners to be seen by others.
"Christianity is such an interesting religion. You can give a prophecy which doesn't work and still rebrand it to something else. That's how Seven Day Adventists and Jehovah Witnesses came to be. See TB Joshua, after prophecy failure self-isolating," another Twitter user wrote.
