Members Desert Late Ajanaku's Church, Family Spends Half a million Naira to Preserve his Corpse!

Barely six months after the demise of the controversial  Gbogan, Osun born spiritualist and former spiritual father of Yoruba gospel singer, Tope Alabi, late Prophet Ajanaku, members have dumped the once buoyant ministry.

ENCOMIUM Weekly checks revealed that the ministry which recorded over 2,000 members at times during the era of the late prophet now barely records over 150. And according to sources, this is not unconnected to the fact that many miracle seekers became members due to the spiritual power of the prophet and his prophetic messages which is now conspicuously missing.

A source squealed to Encomium that he left because he was comfortable with the way and manner they
managed his death issue.Continue...

“I wasn’t too happy with the stuff going on there, especially with the way they are going about his death issue. They quarrel with people who admitted that he is dead. We are not fools and everybody knows he has been certified dead, why the confusion? Also, some of his aides have turned the administration of the ministry to politics which I’m not comfortable with.
Aside that, we learnt some left due to the many alleged controversies surrounding his death and several speculations about his involvement with occultism. They felt betrayed when the church authority didn’t have good explanation about the whole issue.Why keep everybody in the dark about such issues?
ENCOMIUM Weekly authoritatively gathered that the church has spent about N500,000 preserving his corpse at the mortuary at 68 Military Hospital Road, Yaba, Lagos.
One of the mortuary's attendants, on Friday, February 28, 2014, revealed that N1 ,500 is the fee for the form and about N100,000 is for deposit of corpse, especially for VIPs. Then, preservation fee is N1,000 per day but for those who want special treatment, they pay N1, 500 daily - a category late Prophet Ajanaku falls into.
Thus, for six months the church has paid about N300,000 on preservation alone. That excludes the other expenses they paid on tips for attendants, amongst other things.

Despite the disagreement between the family members and the disciples of late Prophet Ireti Ajanaku over his burial plans and date, ENCOMIUM Weekly gathered that he would be buried at his church in Lagos.


The whole palaver began on Sunday, August 18, 2013, when it was reported that the controversial clergy passed on, on Saturday, August 17, 2013, at Gbongan, Osun state. Few hours later, it was announced that he had resurrected. ENCOMIUM Weekly later gathered that his church members brought his corpse to Lagos and started a vigil, praying for his resurrection.

However, on Thursday, August 22, 2013, he was certified dead by a team of doctors. His corpse was deposited at the Military Hospital, Yaba, Lagos, on Friday, August 25, 2013. While the family members knew their son was dead, the church members still held on to the belief that he only went on a spiritual exercise.
