First son of late Apostle Timothy Obadare has disclosed that his father would be buried in a gold-plated casket as a mark of honour for his contributions to Christendom.

Pastor Paul Obadare disclosed this during a press briefing organised by the Obadare family and the protégés of the late man of God in Lagos on the burial arrangement.

“The coffin to be used for the burial of our father, Apostle Timothy Obadare, is taken after the type used for the burial of the late Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston,” Obadare said.

He said the late founder of World Soul Winning Evangelical Ministry, WOSEM deserved the honour and more.

Michael Jackson was buried in a gold-plated casket called Promethean, said to have cost $25,000. Whitney Houston’s casket was also said to have cost around the same amount, but she reportedly wore costlier jewelry worth $500,000 inside the costly casket. Obadare won’t be using any jewelry, save probably his wristwatch…maybe a ring too.

Paul Obadare, who is the General Overseer of the church in the United States of America, described his father as a national figure, who made lasting impact on the nation in his time.

According to him, other events lined up for the burial of the renowned evangelist include an exhibition of snapshots of crusade documentaries.

He added that there will be lying-in-state in Ilesha, Osun State in a transparent ambulance.

“Our father was a renowned teacher of the bible, a great missionary, crusader and devoted apostle of Jesus Christ. He lived a well-fulfilled exemplary life of a good Christian.

“He served man and God before his passing. We the children, biological and spiritual, have come together to give him a deserving burial as a national figure.

“There will be service of songs in Ilesha, Akure, Ibadan and Lagos, while he will be interred at a mausoleum prepared for his final rest at WOSEM conference ground at Ilesha-Ife, in Osun State,” he added.


  1. I am not convinced that this son of baba obadare and all those who are planining this wastage never know God at all and a bit of what and who God is nor know His word. You are a nobody if you chrictianity does not impact lives of men. This was what Papa obadare lives, preaches and practiced while. Souls are perishing, many just need only N500 support and they will run to give their lives to Christ and stay forever connected with God and the kingdom of God will keep rising in population. Its a pity……OMO ENI IBA JONI ABAYO. (HOW JOYFUL IF OUR CHILDREN RESEMBLES OR TAKE AFTER US)
