BREAKING NEWS: Prophet T.O. Obadare is dead

Renowned evangelist and founder of the World Soul Winning Evangelical Ministry, Prophet Timothy Obadare, died in a private hospital after a protracted illness in Akure on Thursday at the age of 85.

An aide of the late evangelist, Pastor Michael Awe, and the Chairman of the Ondo State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Bishop Joshua Ketiku, confirmed that doctors of a private hospital in Akure where the Octogenarian man of God breathed his last, pronounced him dead around 4:45pm.

Awe who had managed the media activities of Obadare’s WOSEM for many years said the late prophet died of old-age related ailment.

He said, “Baba had worked tiredlessly as a general in the army of Jesus Christ. He travelled widely within and outside the country for serious and rigorous evangelical activities for many years and this will definitely tell on his health considering the fact that he also fasted and prayed a lot apart from the long sessions of counselling.”

Asked whether the age-long controversy between the late prophet and the Christ Apostolic Church would not affect WOSEM, Awe said “there is no faction in the CAC. The late Prophet Obadare related well with officials of the CAC before his death and he was a great follower of the late Apostle Ayo Babalola who founded the CAC.”

May his soul rest in peace
