Pastor Dare Adeboye, the son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, is dead.
It was gathered that the 42-year-old son of the revered cleric, died in his sleep on Wednesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he lives with his family.
The deceased was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region 35, and had ministered the previous day.
He was said to have retired to his bed and did not wake up.
His wife, Temiloluwa, was said to have raised an alarm when he did not wake up.
“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 told The Punch.
Several leaders of the church, who confirmed the incident, said they could not comment on it.
The Head of Media and Public Relations of RCCG, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, however, confirmed the news 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.”
