UPDATE: The Media aide to the deceased, Pastor Michael Awe described him as a great evangelist who travelled wide within and outside Nigeria on rigorous evangelism.
One of the children of the late prophet, Mr Joseph Obadare said his father lived a fulfilled life. He however informed that the family was waiting for the arrival of the eldest son before they can make further announcements.
In a statement, Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State said Obadare’s life, ministry and influence can be likened to those of saints, rare and uncommon.
“In his way of life, concern for the lost soul and uplifting of the name of God, Obadare stands tall among the prophets of his generation and broke barriers that health attempted to place on his way. He was consistent and controlled, aggressive yet unobtrusive and had no pretensions about his faith and God.
“Prophet Obadare made the life of the poor and the downtrodden his and helped many re-discover their connections to God.
“His strident cries against sin and warnings to those departing from what is right and just will be sorely missed.”
