The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has reacted to the reports doing the round about the death of one Mr. Michael Arowosaiye said to be one of the members of the church and committed suicide in Abuja on Tuesday May 14, 2019. 

In a statement made available to News Express on Thursday by the Head, Media & Public Relations of the church, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi stated that Michael decided to take his own life after going into depression. 

However, the report has been trending on the social media and has also featured in the newspapers. 

The statement added: “While the RCCG leadership sympathises with the family of the deceased, it has become necessary to clarify the mis-information and absolute falsehood in the report.

“The said Mr. Michael Arowosaiye was not a minister in the RCCG. He was a singer and a keyboardist in one of our Youth Parishes in Abuja until 2017 when he left for another ministry.

“His movement to another ministry notwithstanding, Michael, through his elder brother who is presently one of the coordinators of the RCCG Youth Choir, continued to get invitation to minister in RCCG programmes.

“He had accommodation problem in 2018 and 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, he added

The spokesman of the commission however maintained that it is untrue to refer to the deceased as a Minister in the RCCG, adding that it is 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.”
