The Nasru-Lahi-L-Fatih Society of Nigeria (NASFAT), a Muslim prayer group, on Monday commiserated with Pastor Enoch Adeboye, over the death of his son, Pastor Dare.

Mr Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG) lost Dare to the clutches of death on Tuesday May 4 at the age of 42 years.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Monday, NASFAT’s spokesman, AbdulHakeem Yusuf, said the group was shocked at the younger Adeboye’s death.

He added that the group prayed that God would grant the family and the RCCG the fortitude to bear the loss and overcome it.

He quoted NASFAT’s President, Niyi Yusuf, as describing deceased Mr Adeboye as an energetic and dynamic cleric dedicated to the works of God.

The spokesman also quoted NASFAT’s Chief Missioner, Imam Abdul-Azeez Onike, as saying: “we all came from God and to Him we shall all return.’’ adding that the cleric prayed that God would comfort the entire RCCG family.

The NASFAT group focuses on youth, women and the elite. It has millions of members across Nigeria.
