The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has sent a message of condolence to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, whose son, Pastor Dare Adeboye, died in his sleep on Tuesday, May 4.
In a statement seen by Legit.ng on Saturday, May 8, the Islamic group described the death of Pastor Dare as a test of faith for his father and his followers.
The statement signed by MURIC’s director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, quoted a biblical passage urging the RCCG family to be strong.
Part of the statement read:
“We are deeply touched by the death of Pastor Enoch Adeboye’s son, Dare Adeboye, at 42. But we know that it will pass. This is a trial to test the faith of Pastor Adeboye, his family members, and his followers.”
Similarly, the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet TB Joshua, has suggested that God’s time played a role in the sudden demise of Pastor Dare.
The cleric made the suggestion on Friday, May 7, in a condolence message to the Adeboye family published on the Facebook post of his ministry, adding that what matters is not how long people live but how well.
Prophet Joshua also called for a moment of silence over the death of the young pastor.
On his part, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state has commiserated with Adeboye and his wife over the death of their son.
Okowa, in a statement sent to Legit.ng on Friday, May 7 by his spokesman, Olisa Ifeajika, said the news of the untimely passing of Pastor Dare came as a great shock.
He described the incident as a real tragedy but urged the Adeboyes to be strong as no one could question God.
