Did a Nigerian Pastor Predict the Disappearance of flight MH370?

There’s a lot of buzz that a Nigerian Pastor predicted the disappearance of Malaysian flight MH370. Prophet T.B. Joshua claimed an airline with over 200 people, flying from an Asian country would develop a fault soon after take-off. He made this prediction on July 28th, 2013. Here’s the video:

Let’s look at the facts:

1. Flight MH370 was from an Asian country but with the number of flights flying in Asian countries this really isn’t an impressive prediction.

2. It was over 7 months later that the Malaysian flight disappeared. Pastor Joshua gave no time frame. This isn’t an impressive prediction at all.

3. He claimed the airline developed a fault soon after take-off. Authorities don’t believe MH370 developed a fault – In fact they have evidence that the plane had purposefully changed course.

This prediction is so vague it is useless. A valuable prediction should be limited in scope and duration and include details about the incident.
