Ghastly! Church of God desecrated, another RCCG pastor assassinated

Another cleric of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Lagos has been killed just a few weeks to Yuletide. He is Pastor Babatunde Dada of the RCCG in FESTAC Town in Amuwo-Odofin council area and he was both the Admin/Accounts Officer as well as the parish pastor.

The horrendous crime was committed inside the RCCG Chapel of Resurrection on Road 13, 6th Avenue, FESTAC Town, Persecondnews.com reports.

The two assailants, who came into church as new converts, reportedly stabbed the pastor multiple times before hacking him to death.

“Two boys had come to church last Sunday and they responded to the altar call by giving their lives to Christ. After church service, they waited to see the head pastor and told him that they were stranded without any place to stay.

“On compassionate grounds, the pastor allowed them to stay somewhere within the church premises pending when they would be resettled. Pastor Tunde Dada, who had for almost a decade been the accountant of RCCG Chapel of Resurrection Parish, was assigned to provide needed welfare for the boys until their matter would be sorted.

“On the fateful Thursday, Tunde was seated in his office and the boys targeting that they were alone on the church premises with him, entered his office and attacked him with knives and other sharp weapons. He was stabbed multiple times and places until they had him killed right there on the spot.

“Our minds are still searching for what the rift between the boys and Tunde was considering the fact that the Tunde we knew was a very gentle soul. Could they have asked for more welfare than what was approved for them and Tunde declined?

“What on earth would warrant this brutal killing by those who were recipients of a server of the church’s benevolence?

“There are many more questions that we have not found answers to,” a friend of the slain pastor, Fred Enemigin, who is the founder, Highflyers International, Lagos, wrote on Facebook.

The widow, Bose, said she called her husband on the fateful day of the incident, promising to come home and rest.

“My husband was killed on December 2 at the church. He was the admin/accounts officer, as well as the parish pastor.

” I was not with him when he was killed, but I was told that they collected money from him. I heard that those who killed him were new converts,” the grieving spouse narrated.

Meanwhile, the case has been reported to the police for Investigations.

A police source confirmed that one of the suspects, who had bolted to Ilorin, Kwara State, has been apprehended.

Persecondnews also recalls that on August 14, 2021, a pastor, Bolanle Ibrahim of the King of Kings parish of RCCG, Ketu, Lagos, WA shot dead.

The pastor was said to have been killed at the church premises located at Maidan area in Ikosi-Ketu.

Ibrahim was said to be praying during a child dedication service on Sunday when the gunmen attacked the church and shot him dead.
