Popular deacon Slumped and Died on the alter during sermon
Francis Ogunnusi, a deacon at the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), Onikoko, Abeokuta, Ogun State, reportedly slumped and died during a Sunday service while preaching the “get-rich-quick” syndrome.
When the Deacon, also known as the Baale of Onikoko, a community near Panseke, suddenly slumped with a microphone in his hand, the church was thrown into disarray.
“The money you make through unlawful means, killing people, sucking human blood; when death comes, it will belong to another person,” Ogunnusi said in Yoruba.
However, when the interpreter continued to try to present the words in English, the man slumped and caused a ruckus in the church.
He was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre in Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, where he was pronounced dead, according to reports.
“The man was not the pastor of that church, he was just an elder,” a congregant told the aforementioned publication. He was the Onikoko Baale. On Sunday, however, he was the one who gave the sermon.
“He was talking about death and people who profit from the deaths of others. He collapsed all of a sudden. He was rushed to the FMC, but he succumbed to his injuries. We have no idea what happened. I was terrified. Everything was thrown off. We just went home after sharing the grace.”
At the time of filing this report, Ejes Gist Newspaper could not confirm whether the deceased was suffering from any health issues.
