Oyo State CAN mourns death of cleric



Apostle Joshua Akinyemiju, the Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Oyo State, has described the death of Rev. Gomba Oyor, as a great shock and a huge loss to the association.

The details of his death are not yet known as at the time of filing in this report.

Akinyemiju said his demise was sad because he had been a worthy resource person to CAN in the state.

“He was a man of God, who impacted on so many lives in and outside his ministry, we therefore, give glory to God for his life, a life of service to God and humanity.

“We pray that God grants all the mourners the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” he said.

Also, the Oyo State former CAN chairman, Pastor Benjamin Akanmu, described Oyor as a genuine man of God, who feared God and impacted on humanity.

“Death is inevitable, it’s something that everyone of us must bow to when the time comes, no one can die without God knowing.

“We must all die one day when we finish our assignment on earth, so Rev. Oyor has finished his own work and God has called him home,” he said.
