Odukoya’s death comes about two months after he celebrated his late wife Nomthi on her posthumous birthday.
Nomthi died on November 9, 2021, following a two-year battle with cancer.
Odukoya’s twin sister Kehinde Hassan died in December 2021.
The cleric wedded Nomthi, a South African, in January 2010, five years after his first wife Pastor Bimbo Odukoya died on December 11, 2005 from injuries sustained in a plane crash.
