“New Converts” Murder Pastor in Lagos

Hoodlums who pretended to be new converts have killed Pastor Babatunde Dada of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in FESTAC Town, in the Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area of Lagos State.

The pastor was killed inside the RCCG Chapel of Resurrection on 13 Road, 6th Avenue, FESTAC Town on Thursday, December 2, 2021.

The deceased was said to have been stabbed multiple times before giving up his ghost.

Reports have it that “Two boys had come to the Church last Sunday and they responded to the altar call by giving their lives to Christ. After Church service, they waited to see the head pastor and told him that they were stranded without any place to stay,” wrote Fred Enemigin, a friend of the slain pastor, on Facebook.

What could have left to the heinous attack was still a mystery to sympathisers and members of the Church.

“Our minds are still searching for what the rift between the boys and Tunde was considering the fact that the Tunde we knew was a very gentle soul. Could they have asked for more welfare than what was approved for them and Tunde declined? What on earth would warrant this brutal killing by those who were recipients of a server of the church’s benevolence? There are many more questions that we have not found answers to.”

The wife of the pastor, Bose, however, told reporters that she called her husband on the day of the incident and he promised to come home to rest.

She said, “My husband was killed on December 2 at the Church. He was the admin/accounts officer, as well as the parish pastor. I was not with him when he was killed, but I was told that they collected money from him. I heard that those who killed him were new converts.”

A family member, who is also a security expert, Mr. Abolarinwa Olatunbosun, on Wednesday, said the pastor was killed after withdrawing money from a bank.

He said, “The pastor went to a bank to withdraw some money and went to rest on the first floor of the church. Two persons said to be new converts went to meet him upstairs, broke his head, and killed him.

“The matter was reported to the police and one of the suspects, who ran to Ilorin, was said to have been arrested.”
