Another popular Nigerian pastor dies

Famous Nigerian cleric, Rev. Stephen Akinola, the General Superintendent of Redemption Worldwide Ministries, has died, Punchng.com has reported.

This occurs barely 48 hours after the death of the famous prophet, TB Joshua.

Rev. Akinola was said to have undergone a kidney transplant sometime, though the cause of his death could not be ascertained at the time of filing this report.

It was gathered that many worshippers, including members of his congregation and residents, had thronged to the church which has its headquarters in Port Harcourt to mourn the famous cleric.

Former Chairman of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria as well as former Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria in Rivers State, Apostle Eugene Ogu confirmed Akinola’s demise to our correspondent on Sunday, June 6.

“Yes, it is a very sad day for the Christian community. While we were still talking of Prophet TB Joshua, Akinola’s death happened," he said.

Rev. Akinola was a native of Igboho, Oyo State.

He was born in the Northern part Ghana, in a city called Tamale.

He was 68 years old.
