1: Another church general overseer loses son.

Pastor Elijah Abina, the General Overseer of 65-year-old church, The Gospel Faith Mission International, has lost his son, Emmanuel Folorunso, just as the tragedy of Pastor Dare Adeboye, Pastor Enoch Adeboye's son hit the country during the week. 

SaharaReporters learnt that the son of 85-year-old Pastor Abina, who is also a founding father of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, died on Wednesday, April 28, eight days before the Adeboyes’ bereavement, but the press release was released last week. 

Emmanuel reportedly died after a brief illness.
