“We rushed him to Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja where He was declared dead and we still moved him to Kogi State Specialist Hospital where they tried all kinds of resuscitation to no avail.
“This is the first time we will lose a Pastor and a State Pastor for that matter in our station."

It was gathered that Attabo coordinated the distribution of relief materials sent to flood victims in Kogi by Bishop David Oyedepo.

The cleric was said to be active during the daily Covenant Hour of Prayer and the devotional service of the ongoing Word of Faith Bible Institute program in the morning.

No doubt, the pastor's sudden death has thrown residents of Lokongoma and members of the church in the state into mourning and tears.

Cabal in Winners church? Leading ex-pastor sues Bishop Oyedepo, makes serious allegations

Domino Esang Mbang, a sacked area pastor of the Living Fath Church (aka Winners) in Palm Street Assembly, Atakpa, Calabar South local government area of Cross River, had made serious allegations against the leadership of the church.

Esang: I was sacked without due processes

In his conversation with journalists recently, Esang who is a graduate of Maths and Statistics at the University of Calabar (UNICAL), claimed that he was laid off from the ministry by the leadership who did not follow due processes.

The sacked cleric who said he has spent over 20 years in Winners stated that as contained in the church's operational mandate, a pastor cannot be sacked unless he has been queried with a letter and made to appear before a disciplinary committee to answer pertinent questions and thereafter warned at most thrice before being disengaged.
