Though thousands of worshippers at both the Redeemed Christian Church of God and the Trinity House could see smiles emanating from their spiritual leaders, Pastors E. A. Adeboye and Ituah Ighodalo during church services penultimate weekend, they never understood that their ‘GOs’ are going through some turbulent times underneath when on the pulpit doing what they know how to do best, preaching the gospel.
You may ask the reason for this… Well, Global News can exclusively tell you that the story is about how the two highly respected men of God lost one of their cousins to the cold hands of death. The man, Seun Fashawe popularly known as Dr. Fash died in London. His father, a late monarch in Ondo State was a maternal uncle to both Pastor Adeboye and Pastor Ighodalo. Prior to his death, Dr. Fash was a popular Lagos-based medical doctor who served as the medical director of Silver River Healthcare Nigeria Limited. Also a politician, he once contested and won election as House of Representatives member from Okeigbo/Ileoluji Federal constituency, Ondo State in 2011.
Another angle to this story is the fact that Dr. Fash’s wife Dolapo is the first daughter of the recently ousted Ekiti State deputy governor, Mrs. Modupe Adelabu and this occurrence must have been a double hit on the woman who works as a mental health desk officer at the Ministry of Health, Lagos State Secretariat. She also doubles as the coordinator, Eko Free Health Mission as sadly, her mother recently lost out as the number two citizen of Ekiti State. Both Dr. Fash and Dolapo were blessed with two boys, Oluwakayode and Ayomidimeji.
Though many may have heard about this, only few are privy to the spiritual angle of youthful deaths in the maternal homestead of Pastors Adeboye and Ighodalo. Global News would like to shed more lights on the cause of these deaths. Few years back, another uncle of the dead Dr. Seun battled so hard with other families who were all interested in becoming the monarch of Okeigbo in Ondo State. Engr. Femi Fasawe lost his life to a ghastly motor accident in his Nissan Altima car just few months after he was enthroned as the Oluroke and till date the town has never had a King to replace him. However, we can tell you that one of the younger sisters of the dead Dr. Fash emerged as the regent of the town. This ugly phenomenon is ongoing as the cold hands of death keep snatching young and upwardly-mobile members of the Fasawe clan. In fact, this is indeed the time for both Pastors Adeboye and Ighodalo to combine their anointing powers together and put an end to this ugly trend.
