A self-styled prophet who caused controversy in South Africa in 2015 after being accused of making people eat snakes, rats and hair has appeared at a service hosted by popular Nigerian televangelist TB Joshua in Lagos

Mr Joshua has tweeted about Pastor Penuel Mnguni's attendance:

South Africa's Citizen newspaper quoted Mr Mnguni as saying that he had a change of heart after finding himself at the centre of international headlines - and being arrested and released:

I started watching Emmanuel TV, listening to prophet TB Joshua, I came to realise that what I was doing was not scriptural. I came to realise that It's an attack. I came to TB Joshua to deliver me."

Charges against Mr Mnguni, laid by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, were provincially withdrawn in July 2015 because of a lack of evidence.
