Pastor Dare Adeboye, the son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has died aged 42.
Dare died in his sleep on Wednesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was based with his family.
The spokesman of the RCCG, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, confirmed the tragedy on Thursday morning.
Olubiyi 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.”
Late Dare was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35 and would have been 43 years old next month, June.
He was the third child of the revered cleric. On his 42nd birthday, his father, Pastor Adeboye described him as his first miracle child.
“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,” Adeboye posted on social media in June 2020.
Dare was happily married with children.
Leke, Dare’s brother mourned his sibling in an Instagram post, saying “The righteous man perishes [at the hand of evil], and no one takes it to heart; faithful and devout men are taken away while no one understands that the righteous person is taken away [to be spared] from disaster and evil (Isaiah 57:1).”
