Contrary to reports in some sections of the media, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has said that one Mr. Michael Arowosaiye said to have committed suicide in Abuja on Tuesday was not a minister in the church as widely reported.
In a statement signed by the Head, Media & Public Relations of the Church, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, the church clarified that Arowosaiye was a singer and a keyboardist in one of its Youth Parishes in Abuja until 2017 when he left for another ministry.
It further said that his movement to another ministry notwithstanding, Michael, through his elder brother who was presently one of the coordinators of the RCCG Youth Choir, continued to get invitation to minister in RCCG programmes.
It added that he had accommodation problem in 2018, though he was no longer in the RCCG, a family in the Mission gave him the Boy’s Quarters of their house in Sunnyvale Estate in Lokogoma FCT, which was where he lived till the unfortunate suicide incident.
“It is therefore untrue to refer to him as a Minister in the RCCG. It is also misleading and absolutely incorrect to create the impression that RCCG does not care for its Members and Ministers. The RCCG is in the forefront among organizations with robust welfare package in Nigeria”, it submitted.
