He died in his sleep on Wednesday, May 5, in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was based with his family.
According to an unconfirmed report, he retired to his bedroom on Wednesday and asked not to be disturbed.
When his wife Temiloluwa Adeboye noticed her husband’s unusual sleeping hours and could not reach him on phone, she raised alarm and he was discovered dead. Pastors in the church were called to pray for him, all to no avail.
The younger Adeboye was neither sick nor on medication when the tragic incident happened.
