Redeemed church founder Pa Akindayomi son’s shaves head for Dare Adeboye

Pastor Ife Akindayomi

Pastor Ife Akindayomi, son of the founder of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) the late Pa Josiah Akindayomi, has shaved his head in honour of the late Dare Adeboye.

Dare died in his sleep last Tuesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State. He was aged 42.

Youths and the young at heart in the RCCG have been taking turns to cut their hair to honour Dare who was the second son of the church’s general overseer Pastor Enoch Adeboye.

Adeboye’s last son Leke on Monday evening shared a picture of Akindayomi joining in the ritual.

“Pastor Ife Akindayomi son of the founder of RCCG #forPDee #NotTodaySatan,” he wrote.

Pa Akindayomi founded the RCCG in 1952. After his death in 1980, Adeboye became general overseer the following year.

Despite becoming the church’s leader at a time it was not well known, Adeboye, 79, has expanded it to about 200 countries, including more than 14 million branches in Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Dare’s funeral began on Monday with service of songs in Akwa Ibom.
