The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said some people mocked him when he lost his son, Dare, in 2021.

He made this disclosure during the ongoing 70th Annual Convention of the church while preaching a sermon titled ‘Born Free’ on Tuesday, August 9.

The 80-year-old clergyman said losing his 42-year-old son was the darkest period of his life yet some people still made a mockery of him.

He said,

“Some of you have heard this before: when I was in the saddest period of my life, with so many questions and I know that even in my deep sorrow some people were still laughing at me, I got a text from one of my daughters.

“All she said was: ‘Daddy, let God carry you’. And that put an end to any problem; it ended my sorrows. It renewed my faith.”

Pastor Adeboye’s third child, Dare Adeboye, passed away on May 4, 2021, in Akwa Ibom State where he was based with his family.

He was married to his beautiful wife, Temiloluwa, and had three lovely daughters.

May his soul continue to rest in peace!

On his one year death anniversary, Leke Adeboye, one of the sons of Pastor Enoch Adeboye, paid tribute to him.

Taking to his Instagram page on Wednesday, May 4, the clergyman shared a post in remembrance of his late brother who passed away exactly one year ago.

Leke shared a graphically curated photo of his late brother and wrote, “Forever in our hearts”.
