Nigeria’s former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to the death of a minister at the Redeemed Christian Church of God(RCCG), who committed suicide yesterday.
The young Gospel singer reportedly took his own life after falling into depression for failing to come up with his rent.
Reacting to the suicide, Fani-Kayode condemned the church for “sitting by and doing nothing”, when one of its own had difficult times.
He accused the church of turning their back on the deceased and driving him to a state of despair and frustration.
He wrote: For a Church to sit by and do nothing when one of its young Ministers cannot pay his rent is sad. For them to turn their backs on him and drive him into such a state of frustration, despair and desperation that he ends up committing suicide are damn right condemnable. RCCG why?
