Ezekiel Atang, the General Overseer of God’s House of Refuge, Uyo, Akwa Ibom, has passed away three weeks to his 50th birthday.

The report of his death was confirmed by popular clergyman and relationship coach, Kingsley Okonkwo, who described him as his “partner in family life mandate”.

Pastor Atang was slated to celebrate his 50th birthday on Monday, March 14th, and had sent out initiations to his friends and family before his untimely death.

The cause of his death was however not disclosed.

In his tribute, Pastor Kingsley wrote on Instagram,

“My brother and my friend, my partner in family life mandate to the body of christ

You left an indelible mark, and unforgettable legacy, you spoke with clarity and conviction, loved by all, we will definitely miss you

I received the invitation to your 50th birthday celebration same day you went to be with the Lord

I’m happy I spoke to you and saw you a few days before you went to be with the Lord, we love you – you will never be forgotten on this side.

@ezekiel.atang”
