Pastor Elijah Abina, the General Overseer of Faith Mission International (GOFAMINT), lost his 53-year-old son, Pastor Emmanuel Folorunso Abina, eight days before the Adeboyes.

The circumstances of Emmanuel’s death were unknown to Sunday Vanguard, but a source close to GOFAMINT said he was the Pastor in charge of the Kingdom House Assembly of the church in Festac Town, Lagos, until his transition. The deceased was also said to be the part-time Director of Media for GOFAMINT, as well as the church’s youth rallying point.

“With a heavy heart but in total submission to the sovereignty of the Supreme God, we announce the passing onto glory of our brother, our pastor, and a member of the Executive Council of The Gospel Faith Mission International (GOFAMINT), Pastor Emmanuel Folorunso Abina, on Wednesday, 28th April 2021.

“May the Lord Jesus Christ comfort our General Over[1]seer, the immediate and ex[1]tended family as well as the church”.

Meanwhile, a commendation service for Dare Adeboye will be held in Eket where he was Regional Pastor today. The deceased was the “miracle child” and the second biological son of Pastor Adeboye. He was his father’s look alike.

According to a release by the family, the body of the deceased, lying cold in the morgue of Babcock University, Ilisan-Remo, will be taken in a motorcade to the Redemption Camp -the city which was created by his 79- old-father- where Pastor D, as he was fondly called, will finally rest in the vault there.
