A former Deputy General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor J. H. Abiona is dead.
Confirming the development, a top official of the Church said Abiona died at the age of 96, on Saturday, 1st January, 2022.
Abiona was reportedly one of the respected elders of the church. He was appointed acting General Superintendent after the death of the founder, Pa Josiah Akindayomi.
Report has it that Abiona handled the transition of the church leadership from Akindayomi to the present General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye in 1981.
Late Abiona was one of the very few people to pray for Pastor Adeboye and his wife, Foluke, during church programmes.
