The Senior Pastor of Fountain of Life Church, Ilupeju, Lagos, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya's wife, Nomthi Odukoya, has passed on.
This was made known on Tuesday in a post Pastor Taiwo made via his Instagram handle.
Nomthi, who is the second wife of the pastor, died of cancer after battling with it for two years.
Taiwo wrote, “With deep regret and gratitude to God, I have to announce the passing of my wife, Pastor Nomthi Odukoya.
”She battled cancer for the better part of two years, she stood on the Word of God, and she fought.
“She gave me 11 beautiful years of marriage and two wonderful boys, who I know will be very significant in life.
“I loved her with all my heart, but who am I to fight with the will of God. The truth is, at one point in our lives, we all will have to say goodbye. So for now, till we meet again in glory, Goodbye Nomthi.”
In January 2020, Nomthi and Taiwo who are both senior pastors of the church, celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary.
