New Converts At RCCG, Stab Pastor To Death In Lagos

Two men who seemingly gave their lives to Christ recently at the Redeemed Christian Church of God have stabbed and killed a pastor of the branch in FESTAC Town, in the Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area of Lagos State.

Reports gathered revealed that the victim, Pastor Babatunde Dada, was inside the RCCG Chapel of Resurrection on 13 Road, 6th Avenue, FESTAC Town.

The incident which occurred on Thursday, December 2, was perpetrated by two new converts who came to the church for the first time a Sunday before the incident.

 The two youths were said to have come out during an altar call and surrendered their lives to Jesus. They claimed to be stranded and the church accommodated them on its premises. 

They had barely spent a week in the church when they reportedly stabbed the clergyman to death. 

 The wife of the pastor, Bose, told reporters that she called her husband on the day of the incident and he promised to come home to 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,” she said. 

 A family member, who is also a security expert, Mr Abolarinwa Olatunbosun, revealed on Wednesday that the pastor was killed after withdrawing money from a bank. 

 “The pastor went to a bank to withdraw some money and went to rest on the first floor of the church. Two persons said to be new converts went to meet him upstairs, broke his head and killed him.
