The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye just lost his son, Pastor Dare Adeboye; the Provincial Youth Pastor in Eket, Akwa Ibom State.
Pastor Dare was reported to have died in his sleep on Wednesday at his base in Eket, Akwa Ibom State. He was said to have retired to his bed and did not wake up.
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.”
The Head of Media and Public Relations, RCCG, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, however, confirmed the tragedy on Thursday morning.
He said, “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.”
Dare would have been 43 years old next month, June.
On his 42nd birthday, his dad (Pastor Adeboye) wrote 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 need 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, and with children.
