C&S leader, G.O. Fakeye, dies at 78

The spiritual leader of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church, Ayo Ni o, Prophet Gabriel Olubunmi Fakeye, is dead.

The C&S Movement announced his death during their Sunday service, but did not specify what led to his death.

Further checks, however, revealed that the popular televangelists, also known as the Psalmist, died on Sunday in a hospital in the United States of America after a brief illness. He was aged 78.

Born in 1937, Fakeye, an engineer, started preaching the gospel at a tender age. He was popularly called “Bro Aladura” in his youthful days and remained a preacher until his death.

Even though he was advanced in age, he continued to administer the movement (Ayo Ni O) he founded.

Late Fakeye was a visionary leader with profound knowledge, grasp, and appreciation of history. He was renowned for his conviction and faith in the unity and greatness of Cherubim and Seraphim Church.

He was also a believer in the unity of Christianity worldwide, as he was not a sectional leader.

Until his death, he had television and radio programmes in a number of broadcast stations including the G.O Fakeye television programmes.

Fakeye is survived by wife, a son, six daughters and grandchildren.

Sources from the Ayo Ni O Movement told our correspondent that burial arrangement would soon be made public.
