Late Obadare

Late Obadare

The burial of late Apostle Timothy Obadare of the World Soul Winning Evangelistic Ministry, WOSEM, who was buried last week in Ilesa, Osun State gulped N96 million, according to his eldest son, Pastor Paul Obadare.

The Osun State Government had released N35 million for the event, but Obadare’s son said the family spent more than that amount.

According to him, the casket in which Obadare was was buried cost N5 million. N61 million was also spent on the construction of a mausoleum for the late man of God, while another N30 million was spent on entertainment.

Paul, who commended the Osun State Government for the donation, said the money given by the state government was part of the amount spent. He said many other people contributed to the burial.

The burial of the late seer was very grand and a beauty to see, but observers say N96 million was too huge an amount to be spent on the burial of a humble man of God such as Obadare.

Obadare, a blind seer, was buried last weekend at Ilesa, Osun State in a ceremony that brought thousands of Nigerians together irrespective of their religion or class.

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.
