The Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria, one of the leading Pentecostal movement in the country has announced the death of Wilson Badejo, their former General Overseer.
Yomi Oyinloye, the National Secretary of the church noted in a statement that Mr Badejo, who was the church’s G.O between 1999 and 2009, died on Saturday after a brief illness. The deceased was 74 years of age.
“He was a great achiever, an accomplished servant of God, a role model, a bridge builder, mentor, teacher par excellence, an apostle and respected family man.
“Dr Badejo served the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria in several ministerial capacities, crowning his stewardship at the apex as the General Overseer of the Church from 1999 for 2009.
“He was a man of many parts who was able to unlock socio-cultural gateways, and in the process successfully endeared several friends and loved ones from all walks of life across the divide,” the church said.
The PFN (Pentocostal Fellowship of Nigeria) has also expressed shock at the news, noting that his death is a great loss to the Christian community.
