Pastor Dare Adeboye, the son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide, Enoch Adeboye, is dead.
Gistongist reports that, the 42-year-old, who is the third son of the cleric, died in his sleep on Wednesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he lived with his family.
Reliable sources in the church said the deceased, who was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35, had ministered a day before his death.
Pastor Dare Adeboye was said to have retired to his bed and never woke up.
The deceased wife, Temiloluwa, who was said to have raised the alarm said”“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.
Last year, on his 42nd birth, his dad, Adeboye on a social media post described him as his first miracle child.
He 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 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
