FILE - In this Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013 file photo, T.B. Joshua lays his hand on the head of a worshipper during a service at the Synagogue, Church of All Nations, in Lagos Nigeria. T.B. Joshua's Synagogue, Church of All Nations has branches around the world, and a recent YouTube video even credits him with predicting the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370. Joshua is one of the best-known preachers in Africa and among the most profitable in Nigeria, the go-to faith healer and spiritual guide for leaders such as the late Ghanaian president John Atta Mills, Malawian president Joyce Banda and former Zimbabwean prime minister Morgan Tsvangirai. The man who says he comes from the poor village of Arigidi is worth between $10 and $15 million based on assets, according to Forbes magazine, which in 2011 estimated his personal wealth. The church holds some 15,000 people with outside tents for the overflow and Sunday services are beamed worldwide.  Yet critics say this wildly popular televangelist hinders efforts to curtail the spread of HIV and tuberculosis with testimonies by church-goers that faith and his holy water can cure both.  He is also accused of taking advantage of his followers and tightly controlling those closest to him, who call him "Daddy."(AP Photo/Carley Petesch, file)
