Reports have emerged on the cause of death of the founder of Fountain of Life Church, Ilupeju Lagos, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya.

Naija News recalls that the church had announced that the clergyman passed on in the United States of America (USA) on Monday at 67.

The church, however, did not disclose how he died.

But, The Nation gathered that the respected cleric had health issues mainly triggered by personal tragedies.

A source close to the family said: ” He really didn’t get over the losses he suffered. He tried to be strong but there is a limit to what a man can take.

“Pastor was more devastated by what people said after Pastor Bimbo died than what actually happened. Many people said nasty things that saddened his heart. He was touched by the savagery of the comments.

“Well, he had no choice and decided to move on despite the heart break. It took a lot of talking for him to decide to remarry.

“If Pastor Bimbo’s death was shattering, Pastor Nomthi’s demise was a technical knock-out. It knocked Pastor down and out. He was inconsolable. He was very bothered about what people would say.

“It left him totally lifeless. There was nothing we could tell him. It took something deep out of him and some of us became afraid for him.”

Speaking further, the source explained that when the clergyman lost his twin few weeks after his wife’s death it was more or less the last straw.

“For someone who has lost two important women in his life, it was tough to take the death of someone with whom he shared his womb and childhood.

“It was a personal, humbling tragedy. He would just gaze and seemed to become completely disinterested in things around him. It was unusual to become totally lost in conversations and issues.

“I believe something died in him at that point. He tried to put up a strong face for the church but he was human. He was died within and it was only a matter of time. That he lived for almost two years after showed the strength of his character,” The family source explained.
