Leke and Adeolu Adeboye, the male children of General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, have shaved their hair, and beard, in honour of their brother, Oluwadamilare Adeboye.
Oluwadamilare, 42, died in his sleep last Tuesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he pastored a church.
Leke said in a post on his Instagram account: “This is our tradition. Anytime we lose a fallen soldier as youths, we shave off our hair as a sign of respect and honour.
“To live is Christ and to die is gain. It is very simple. PD is already gone. How are you living right now? Heads shaved; clean hearts and clean minds.”
It was learnt that some male members of the church have also shaved their hair as a sign of respect for the deceased.
The family, in a statement by Leke, released the burial programme.
