The third son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide, Enoch Adeboye, known as Pastor Dare Adeboye has died.
According to reports, the 42-year-old, died in his sleep on Wednesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was based with his family.
Sources closed to the deceased revealed that he’d preached the day before as he was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth). He’d however gone to bed and not risen the following day.
His wife, Temiloluwa, was said to have raised the alarm.
“He was not sick and did not complain of anything before the incident. Pastors in the church were summoned to pray for him, all to no avail,” a source added.
Several leaders of the church, who confirmed the incident, said they could not comment on it.
The Head of Media and Public Relations, RCCG, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, however, 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.”
Recall Pastor Adeboye had celebrated him with sweet words on his 42nd birthday flash year.
He had written on his Facebook page,
“Our first miracle child. We pray that God will keep his miraculous working power in your life and all those who needs a miracle today, will use you as a point of contact for their own in JESUS name. (Amen) love from Dad, Mom and the whole Adeboye dynasty.”
Dare was happily married with children.
