He reportedly died in his sleep on Wednesday, in Eket, Akwa Ibom state where he resides with his family, PUNCH reports.

The 42-year-old who served as assistant pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35 and had ministered in church the previous day, didn’t complain of anything, was neither sick nor on medication before the incident.

According to PUNCH, leaders of the church have confirmed the incident but are yet to comment on it.

“It is true. The incident happened in Eket where he was based. I don’t have the details for now. Maybe before the end of today, we will issue a statement,” said Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, Head of Media and Public Relations, RCCG.

Dare’s brother, Leke Adeboye also confirmed the sad news via an Instagram post that read,

The righteous man perishes [at the hand of evil], and no one takes it to heart; faithful and devout men are taken away while no one understands that the righteous person is taken away [to be spared] from disaster and evil.

Several Nigerians have taken to social media to express their shock and send prayers and condolences to the Adeboye family. Here’s what they have to say:

Sending BN love and light to members of the Adeboye family❤🙏

    This is a nightmare that must never be true. This man of God, his parents and their entire family have given their all and, I mean all to the service of God, with the love of the great nation Nigeria and the world at large, at the very heart of all they do!
    I pray that the Almighty God, who is best at comforting will by Himself succour His own people, and comfort them endlessly in the name of Jesus. This is a huge blow! However, only God understands what we can never understand. It is well with our dear Daddy G.O and dear Mummy G.O. – people with a genuine heart of gold. It is well with the wife, children, brothers, sisters and the congregation this God’s general has left behind. I am sad and, I mean sad with this news.
