The senior pastor of Fountain of Life Church, Taiwo Odukoya, has passed away.
On Tuesday, the church posted a message on its official Facebook page confirming his death.
“The Fountain of Life Church Family, in total submission to the will of God almighty, announces the passing unto greater glory of our father, teacher, a great servant of the most high God, pastor Daniel Taiwo Odukoya, Founding Pastor of The Fountain of Life Church, who passed unto glory on the 7th of August 2023 in the USA,” the message on the church’s Facebook page reads.
“We are in total submission to you LORD!!! We thank the Lord for the gift of a greater leader!!!”
In the United States of America (USA), he was reported to have passed away on Monday.
Odukoya passed away less than two years after losing his South African-born wife Nomthi on November 9, 2021, following a two-year struggle with cancer.
Two boys were born during Odukoya’s 11-year second marriage to Nomthi.
Odukoya was married to Bimbo for 21 years prior to Nomthi.
In the 2005 Sosoliso plane tragedy in Port Harcourt, the capital of the Rivers, Bimbo perished.
Bimbo, who served as a pastor at Fountain of Life Church, is best known for founding the “Single and Married” ministry, which has won praise for helping young people and married couples build satisfying and long-lasting relationships.
The pastor also lost his identical sister Kehinde Hassan in December 2021 as a result of complications from cancer.
