Tears as Prophet D. A. Samuel Goes Home
By BEN AKPONINE SAMUEL
The general overseer of Christ Worshippers Church, Osubi, Warri, Prophet Dr. Duromola Adedayo Samuel has passed on. According to a press statement issued by the church’s General Evangelist, Elder Boro B. Ekotoro, the man of God was healthy and attended the Annual women convention in the church and during his sermon told the church to pray because the hour had come as he had completed his mission. The church did not understand what he meant. After the service he ate with his pastors and they asked him about his sermon and what he meant by the statement he made that the hour had come. He asked them how many years Jesus spent in his ministry. And when someone said 33 years, the prophet said his ministry was about 30 years. He told them to eat because it was the last supper.
The following day he slumped and was taken to the hospital where doctors certified him dead on arrival. The pastors took him to the church temple and prayed over him. According to Elder Ekotoro, “his body did not decompose, swell or stiffen and that made them believe he was not dead. Seven days later, he opened his eyes but neither said a word nor even moved.”.
According to the statement, it was 22 days later that the body began to change. And that was when the church announced his passage.
Prophet Duromola was aged 52 and he is survived by an aged father, wife, children, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, cousins, church members and many who benefitted from his kindness that was legendary. He was an indigene of Owo in Ondo State and he is related to the Akure monarch through his mother.
