Former General Overseer of the Foursquare Gospel Church, Nigeria, Dr Wilson Badejo, aged 74, has been reportedly dead. 

The National Secretary of the church, Reverend Yomi Oyinloye, in a statement announced Badejo’s death, who was the former G.O and headed the church between 1999 and 2009.

According to the church, Badejo passed on Saturday, following a brief illness.

The statement read in parts, “He (Dr Badejo) was a great achiever, an accomplished servant of God, a role model, bridge-builder, mentor, teacher par excellence, an apostle and respected family man.

“Dr Badejo served the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria in several ministerial capacities, crowning his stewardship at the apex as the General Overseer of the Church from 199toor 2009.

“He was a man of many parts who was able to unlock socio-cultural gateways, and in the process successfully endeared several friends and loved ones from all walks of life across the divide.”

The statement read that though the church was saddened by the demise of the servant of God, it encouraged members to take solace in the fact that he lived a fulfilling, God-fearing, and impactful life.

While calling for prayers for the family of the deceased and the Foursquare Gospel Church, it stated that Badejo left behind an indelible mark in the heart of everyone who came his way.
