Outspoken Nigeria pastor, Tunde Bakare, who collapsed Monday while giving a lecture to a group of investors in Lagos is “hale, hearty and in good spirit though in need of rest,” his church, the Latter Rain Assembly said through its social media handles.
While thanking followers of Mr Bakare, who is also an influential social activist and one of the most relentless critics of governments, for their outpouring of love and concern, the church said he needs “the space and time to fully recuperate over the next few days”.
“Thank you all for your outpouring of affection and concern through calls, messages, and prayers,” the statement by the church’s executive council read. “Please be assured that Pastor Tunde Bakare is hale, hearty and in good spirits, though in need of rest.”
Mr. Bakare was reported to have collapsed while delivering a lecture during the Capital Investors dinner at the Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos on Monday.
A witness had told Sahara Reporters that there was a swelling on his forehead after he fell. He was rushed to Reddington Hospital in Lagos and was discharged after receiving preliminary treatment.
