It was a tragedy for the Christian community in Bauchi on Thursday as Rev. Emmanuel Ogbeba, the Chairman, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) in the state and pioneer pastor of Potter’s House Church, Bauchi kicked the bucket.
According to reports, the 69-year-old cleric he died on Thursday night, it was not officially announced until Friday morning after an emergency meeting of PFN.
Ogbeba, who is in the second year of his tenure as the Bauchi State PFN chairman, had been sick for some time.
According to a source; “It happened late Thursday night at about 11 pm, but it wasn’t announced because of the sensitivity of the story. It was this morning that the news was broken.
“The PFN called for an emergency meeting at Harvest Field Church, Yelwa, which was chaired by the Chairman of the Advisory Council, Rev. Nathaniel Odekunle, and it was at that meeting that he officially announced the sad incident.
“Prominent pastors in the state were present. And from there, all of us moved to his house to greet them although a few family members were there. He has been in Ibadan, Oyo State, for about three weeks now and he was in the hospital receiving treatment,” he said.
He added: “They treated him there and he was a bit okay, but the doctors there still requested that he should be monitored.
“So, they called Daddy G.O. (Pastor E.A. Adeboye, General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God) as the church has one big hospital in Ibadan. He (Daddy G.O.) made arrangements that they should fly him to Ibadan. He even made provision for his flight and everything and he was flown there and since then, he has been there until that yesterday night that he died,” he said.
