*The man who foresaw his death
Arrangements had been concluded to give a befitting burial to the late founder/General Overseer of Christ Worshippers Church Worldwide, Prophet Dr. Duromola Adedayo Samuel, on Saturday 11th November, 2017 at his residence in Akure, Ondo state capital.
In a press statement issued and signed by the Head of Administration of the Church, Evangelist Boro Ekatoro and brother of the deceased, Dr. Monday Duromola, which was made available to www.gongnews.net in Akure said, service of songs and Christian wake keep would be done for the late Prophet at his Crescent, Oshinle, on Friday, 10th November while internment follows on the 11th November Saturday at the same venue.
Born about 52 years ago into the royal families of Pa Yeye Duromola of Owo Kingdom and late Prince Allen Oladigbolu Adegboro of Akure Kingdom, Prophet Samuel popularly called the lonely voice in the wilderness was renowned for his accurate, precise vision, outspokenness on the state of the nation in the media warning the political elites on their activities.
Among his numerous landmark prediction was the emergence of Boko Haram terrorism in the Northern part of Nigeria which the political elites then did not take serious until it started and became escalated in that part of the country.
He had severally warned on the ever increasing gap between the rich and the poor as capable of causing the revolution. Like the Biblical prophet, he had his life full of mystery from birth to death. His history is best described as that of rise from grass to grace. After decades of turbulence, he started Christ Worshippers Ministry in 1987 and got it registered in 1991 at Ometa inside Warri where it moved to Obahor, Okiki, Jakpa road, Effurun, Owian, Ogodogun, Uwangue and finally Osubi, Okpe Local Government Area of Delta State where the headquarters is located at various times.
To the glory of God, the church which started with just about 8 members according to Evangelist Ekatoro, can now boast of hundreds of thousands of members in different parts of the world.
In the course of running his prophetic and deliverance ministry, Prophet Samuel had waged wars against the forces of darkness just as he had escaped many fatal gun attacks and auto accidents unscathed.
Amongst his uncompleted dreams was his plan to build a Christian University that would be tuition-free in Owo, Ondo State as well as construction of Worshippers village in Otumewho, Delta State.
