Hours ago, an alleged RCCG chorister, Michael Arowosaiye, committed suicide due to his inability to pay house rent. RCCG has however denied that the late chorister was a member of its’ church. The church in a broadcast message sent out by comedian Enenche Enenche revealed that he was not a member of The Redeemed Christian Church of God but member of Shepherds House (Pst Joshua Telina). He was only invited to minister at a RCCG programme, which is a common practice within the Christian family to invite music Ministers across denominations and help push their musical careers and creating platforms for expressions for their gifts. Further findings reveal that Micheal committed suicide after his wedding plans backfired.
He was supposed to get married recently, but the wedding was cancelled. Reason for cancellation of the wedding even after invitation cards were out according to my findings is that another girl in the choir claimed that he also proposed to her too. Complications from the cancelation of the wedding, coupled with his accommodation issue possibly led to chains of events that led him to committing suicide. A source, Bennie Umoren wrote thus:
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. Photo Credit: Getty
