Pastor Dare Adeboye, son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, is dead.
It was gathered 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 was based with his family.
According to The PUNCH, information from reliable sources within the church revealed that the deceased, who was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35, 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 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.
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.”
Pastor Dare, who would have turned 43 next month June 9, 2021, was a life coach, visionary leader, motivator, bridge builder and third child of Baba Adeboye.
