The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has lost one of his biological children, Dare, to the cold hands of death, sources have confirmed.
It was learnt that Dare, who pastors one of the Abuja branch of the church, officiated on Sunday. He however asked not to be disturbed after getting home from church. He retired to his bedroom, slept but did not wake up.
According to insider sources, it was when his wife, Temiloluwa Adeboye, noticed her husband’s unusual sleeping hours and could not reach him on phone that she raised the alarm and he was discovered dead.
It was gathered that the younger Adeboye was neither sick nor on medication when the tragic incident happened.
Dare, who was described by Pastor Adeboye last year as his first miracle child would have been 43 in June.
The respected clergy said God put the devil to shame 42 years ago when Dare was born.
He prayed for the celebrant and also prayed that those seeking a miracle from God will receive it.
His post on Facebook read:
Happy birthday to my son Pst Dee prayers on your 42.
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.
Confirming the sad development, one of the top shots in the RCCG family said:
Shock. Disbelief. Tears. Thanksgiving. Praise. Total submission to the will of God. Pastor Dare’s death is painful, unexpected but who dares question God?
Meanwhile, neither Pastor Adeboye’s family nor the RCCG is yet to officially announce the sad passage of Pastor Dare.
