Senior Pastors of the church confirmed that he died in his sleep on Wednesday, shortly after ministration.
‘Righteous Man Is Taken Away’
He was the third surviving child of the revered cleric.
Although the church is yet to issue an official statement announcing the demise of the pastor, Punch newspaper reports that the Head of Media and Public Relations, RCCG, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, confirmed the tragedy on Thursday morning.
“It is true. The incident happened in Eket where he was based. I don’t have the details for now. Maybe before the end of today, we will issue a statement,” Olubiyi said.
He made a scriptural post that reads, “The righteous man perishes [at the hand of evil], and no one takes it to heart; Faithful and devout men are taken away, while no one understands that the righteous person is taken away [to be spared] from disaster and evil.”
