JUST IN: Leke Adeboye pays tribute to brother one year after death

Leke, son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Wednesday, took to his Instagram page to write a tribute to mark one year anniversary of the death of his elder brother, Dare.

In a post shared on his IG page, Leke uploaded the photo of Dare with the caption, “One-year remembrance, with love from Leke Adeboye”.

Dare, the third child of the revered cleric, died on May 4, 2021, in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was based with his family.

Married to Temiloluwa, the deceased was father to three daughters and the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35 before his death.

During the April 2022 Holy Ghost Service of the church, 80-year-old Adeboye recounted how he got over his “deep sorrow” caused by the death of Dare.

According to the octogenarian preacher, a text message from one of his spiritual daughters turned the tide following the death of his 42-year-old son in 2021.

Adeboye had also stressed that God loves him despite the loss of his son.

He had said, “When I lost my son last year (2021), then I was deeply in sorrow, I got a text (message) from one of my (spiritual) daughters that suddenly turned the tide. What she wrote was simply this: Daddy, let God carry you.”
