In an unusual display of courage, the Senior Pastor, Trinity House, Ituah Ighodalo, on Sunday morning conducted funeral service a few hours after receiving news of the death of his wife, Ibidunni Ighodalo, a former Miss Lux winner and popular event planner.
Pastor Ituah conducted the funeral service of Deji Okoya, the grandson of industrialist, Razak Okoya.
Those who attended the service were shocked when the pastor told them of the death of his wife which he said occurred earlier that morning in Port Harcourt, saying he was heartbroken by the news.
He therefore preached how life is transient, urging his listeners to live their lives according to the commandments of God.
“For the past 72 and 84 hours, everywhere tensed, confused, frightening, and disturbing but here we are today. I mean, if they had told us last week Sunday that we will be here to celebrate Ayodeji’s life, we’ll say it’s not possible. She was ill, no doubt, we were believing God that she will be well.
“But here we are right now and here she is. And of course, a lot of you know that I really shouldn’t be here but that’s how life is. So, this morning, I received a call that shattered my life but life must go on,” the pastor stated.
