Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that C&S prophet, Baba Aladura Abidoye, confirmed dead as he died peacefully as he put on his garment and his Bible and laid his head on the table.
C&S confirmed: “A Saint has gone to eternal rest, the Secretary General, Sp Apo Ademola ODETUNDUN has confirmed the peaceful exit of the Baba Aladura Prophet Samuel Abidoye Adefila. He ate his breakfast, put on his garment and his Bible and laid his head on the table for eternity.”..
“That grace of God has not only seen him through to old age, it has always been manifesting in major trajectories in his life. About 1922, when he was born, there was nothing like Christianity in his town, Omu-Aran, in Kwara State, where he started his primary education at the Native Administration Primary School. Indeed, it was not until 1929 that Christian Missionary Society (CMS) got there and he joined. In 1936, he was baptised. That same year, Prophet Ayo Babalola, founder of the Christ Apostolic Church, visited Omu-Aran in the rainy season and it was raining heavily. Babalola reportedly prayed and the rain stopped. This confounded the teachers who were there and they decided to allow the pupils to choose whatever denomination they wanted to belong to. That was how Abidoye opted to become a member of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, at that time apparently unaware of the consequence of that singular decision”.
“Today, that young man who became a Christian by default is the Fifth Spiritual Father/Chairman, Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide. It was, apparently the fulfillment of a dream he had in 1937, when he had told someone in the dream that he wanted to become the head of a church, in response to that person’s question of what he wanted to be in life. His response was amazing because, coming from the Odetulu Abegunle Royal Family of Omu-Aran, he should have wished to mount the throne in the town, someday”.
Spiritual Father and Chairman of Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide, Prophet Samuel Abidoye, also known as Baba Aladura, is dead.
The death was announced on Sunday evening by the church’s Secretary General, Ademola Odetundun.
In a statement made available to The PUNCH on Monday titled “Transition to glory,” Odetundun said, “With gratitude to God Almighty for a life well spent, we announce the transition to glory of our father, grandfather, great grandfather, the spiritual father and chairman of Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church worldwide Ayo ni o, His Grace Baba Aladura, Prophet Samuel Adefila Abidoye, who passed unto glory today, November 12, 2023 around 10am at a ripe age.
“May his soul rest in perfect peace and may God grant the Church the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
