The congregation of the New Life Spring of Joy church, situated at Otunubi street, Orita Challenge, Ibadan, Oyo State are yet to recover from the sudden passing of their founder who was also the former chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Oluyole axis, Reverend Olusayo Fadeyibi.
Fadeyibi died after a short exhortation during the church service last Sunday.
He was seated quietly and when it was noticed that he hadn’t moved in a while, his son went to rouse him and it was discovered that he had stopped breathing. The whole church broke into pandemonium immediately the founder was confirmed to have passed away.
The church premises was a flurry of confusion, just as members and the neighbourhood were confounded as to what led to sudden end of the service.
Efforts to revive the cleric proved abortive and he was rushed to a nearby hospital, but was confirmed dead on arrival.
