The Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria has announced the death of its former General Overseer (G.O), Dr Wilson Badejo, aged 74.
Rev. Yomi Oyinloye, National Secretary of the church, said in a statement that Badejo, who was the church’s G.O between 1999 and 2009, died on Saturday after a brief illness.
Oyinloye said: “He was a great achiever, an accomplished servant of God, a role model, a bridge builder, mentor, teacher par excellence, an apostle and respected family man.
“Dr Badejo served the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria in several ministerial capacities, crowning his stewardship at the apex as the General Overseer of the Church from 1999 for 2009.
“He was a man of many parts who was able to unlock socio-cultural gateways, and in the process successfully endeared several friends and loved ones from all walks of life across the divide.”
