T.O. Obadare, Nigeria’s blind prophet, dead

The prophet was a leader of the Christ Apostolic Church.

A renowned evangelist and founder of the World Soul Winning Evangelical Mission (WOSEM), Prophet Timothy Obadare, is dead.

Mr. Obadare, a blind Akure-based evangelist noted for the monthly Koseunti Crusade, died on Thursday at the age of 85 at an undisclosed private hospital in Akure, the Ondo State.

The prophet was said to have battled an undisclosed ailment in the last few months.

He was a renowned evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) before the ministry fell apart over certain issues within the church.

The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ondo State branch, Joshua Ketiku, confirmed his death.

He described his death as a rude shock, saying the deceased lived a good life and had gone to rest.

“Baba is happier where he is now,” he said.

The media aide to Mr. Obadare, Michael Awe, described him as a great evangelist, who travelled wide within and outside Nigeria on rigorous evangelism activities.

Mr. Awe, who said there was no faction in the CAC Worldwide, said WOSEM had always been an evangelical arm of the church.

In the same vein, the Publicity Secretary of the CAC Worldwide, Adeemisoye Alawode, said the entire CAC was shocked on the news of the death of the prophet.

Alawode said the President of the CAC Worldwide, Abraham Akioso, had condoled with the entire members of the Church and the family of the deceased.

He said during the life of Mr. Obadare, he worked like a General in the Jesus Army saying he did his best for the Church.

One of the children of the late prophet, Joseph Obadare, said his father lived a fulfilled life adding that the family was waiting for the eldest son before they can say any other thing.
