But after his death, the pastor and immediate family members of the deceased reportedly acted against his wish.
A source said: “Since the late pastor including his immediate family had limited authority over the burial plan, he arranged for an ambulance, which took the corpse to Erusu Akoko, alongside his family members and some church members.
“While the pastor was conducting the burial service at the cemetery, he started feeling uncomfortable after which he became unconscious before he was rushed to an undisclosed hospital in Akoko area,where he was confirmed dead.”
The ambulance, which conveyed the remains of the late church member to his home town in Erusu for burial, was also reportedly used to convey the corpse of the Pastor back to Akure.
The shocking development was said to have created confusion and wranglings within the church members and the family of the late cleric.
