Update: How House On The Rock Pastor Akinbami Died Of COVID-19
A pastor with Lagos-based House on The Rock Church, Adeyinka Akinbami, has died of COVID-19 complications.
The Senior Pastor of the church, Paul Adefarasin, made the disclosure in a tweet on Saturday.
Adefarasin, who said he received the sad news on Friday, described the late Pastor Akinbami as a “good man”.
He enjoined members to pray for the late pastor’s family and obey all COVID-19 protocols to avoid falling victims of the virus.
“Yesterday, I received the rude and shocking news of someone deeply dear to me and all of the HOTR family. The passing of Pastor Yinka Akinbami has become most painful because if there truly were good men, he was certainly one. To my brother, sleep well till we meet to part no more,” Adefarasin wrote.
“Family, kindly allow me to solicit your intercession for his dear wife of over 30 years; Pastor Tolu, his children, his children-in-law, and grandchildren. We can only at best imagine how much pain they are feeling. We share the pain of his loss but they will feel it a lot more.
“It’s important to remind the community about the deadly nature of the Covid-19 and its mutant virus strains. Please do your part by following all the recommended precautions. That way, you are able to protect yourself and others who become proximal to you. God bless and keep us all.”
