Nigerians on social media were thrown into disbelief after several sources claimed that a RCCG minister, Michael Arowosaiye, took his own life over difficulties he was facing with his rent.
Many wondered how the church could abandon one of their members in need. However, a Nigerian lady identified on Facebook as Bennie Umoren, has changed the narrative.
According to her, Michael stopped being a RCCG minister two years ago and he started ministering at Shepherd House Church located at Apo, Abuja.
She wrote: “Mike didn’t leave suicide note and he didn’t die because of financial or rent issue. No church abandoned him because of rent. If you know pastor Telena of Shepherd House, you will know he takes very good care of his members and pastors the way he takes care of himself.”
Explaining further, she added that the house the late Michael stayed in was given to him by the church for free.
However, Bennie added that the claim about the pastor killing himself over accommodation issue is false. She explained that he was driven to frustration because his wedding which was to hold around April was called off after another lady he had an affair with released his unclad photos.
“Mike left RCCG 2years ago to Shepherd house church Apo, Abuja where he was a worship leader but was suspended 2months ago, his wedding cancelled because of sexual relationship with another girl who leaked his nud*s hence he got frustrated because of the embarrassment. His house in Sunnyvale Abuja was given to him by the church for free.”
