A Facebook user has shed more light on the reasons why a former music minister in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Region 18 Abuja, Mike Arowosaiye, committed suicide.
Arowosaiye was reported to have hung himself with a belt at his Sunnyvale Estate residence in Abuja on Tuesday over accommodation issues.
But the female Facebook user, Bennie Umoren, who claimed to have firsthand knowledge of the incident, claimed that Arowosaiye died due to the embarrassment caused by an illicit affair he had a with lady, who made public his nude pictures after they quarrelled.
She claimed the issue also led to the cancellation of the deceased’s wedding, which was earlier scheduled for April 27.
The invitation card for the deceased’s cancelled wedding
According to her, the deceased left the RCCG about two years ago for Shepherd House Church in Abuja, where he was the worship leader.
Read her post below:
Mike didn’t leave suicide note and he didn’t die because of financial or rent issue. No church abandoned him because of rent. If you know pastor Telena of Shepherd House, you will know he takes very good care of his members and pastors the way he takes care of himself.
Mike left RCCG 2years ago to Shepherd house church Apo, Abuja where he was a worship leader but was suspended 2 months ago, his wedding cancelled because of sexual relationship with another girl who leaked his nudes hence he got frustrated because of the embarrassment.
His house in Sunnyvale Abuja was given to him by the church for free.
This narrative that Redeemed Church abandoned him is a lie. No body is defending church but you people should stop looking for any opportunity to attack the church and men of God. They are not the reason Nigeria is hard. You didn’t elect them. Channel all your frustrations to Buhari and Fasola that’s not giving us light for days and won’t even give anytime soon.
