* Late Prophet Iretiola Ajanaku
It would be recalled that Late Prophet Ajanaku’s widow, Joy Ajanaku, and some elders of the church had refused to bury since his death because they were convinced he will rise again but have now accepted that once a man is really dead, he’s really dead. This was revealed in a statement released by the church’s media personnel, Shola Bamidele, who said a lying-in-state will be held at the Church premises and then interred in his home.
