Prophet Elijah Ajanaku was the founder and President of the Christ Revival Victory Chapel International, Ayobo, Ipaja, Lagos. He came into lime light when he had a very public fight with one of his members, Tope Alabi, who is also a popular gospel singer. Ajanaku was reported dead by several blogs on Sunday, 18th August, 2013 only for his publicist to release a statement today saying he died on Thursday, 22nd, August. (See it after the cut).

Not only that o, another shocking revelation emerged of what went down at his funeral. According to GazelleNews, the late spiritual leader may have been a member of the Oro cult in his lifetime. Read their report below;

"Residents of Ikola Odunsi, where Ajanaku lived before he breathed his last on Saturday evening at Gbongan in Osun State, were surprised early Tuesday morning when Oro masquerades went to town in funeral rites for the departed ‘Pastor’.

The funeral rites which reportedly began at about 12.30am ended between 3 and 4am.The Oro worshippers chanted the name of Ajanaku throughout the night. The worshippers marched through the streets of Ikola Odunsi, Ikola Gbenaje, and landed at the deceased’s street, Folarin Williams Close. They were chanting, “Ajanaku lo, o di gbere”, meaning “Ajanaku is gone forever, adieu."

Meanwhile, read the statement by the prophet Ajanaku's press secretary announcing that he died on Thursday, contrary to claims that he died on Sunday after the cut...

The death has been announced of Prophet Elijah Iretiola Ajanaku whose death was confirmed by a team of doctors on Thursday night after several vigil of prayers since Saturday evening when his health deteriorated. Prophet Ajanaku who hailed from the Owo Ope family in Gbongan is survived by his wife, Joy and two  children, Stella and Apotieri. His remains has been deposited at the Military Mortuary, Yaba, Lagos.
 Though he was born a Moslem over 40 years ago in Gbongan, he moved to Lagos in the 90s and settled in Ipaja Ayobo area where he acquired skills in many vocations and engaged in several trades before his encounter with God. He founded and shepherded the Christ Revival Victory Chapel International, Ayobo, Ipaja, Lagos and rose to become the President of The Ajanaku World Outreach, a ministry devoted to the spread of the gospel outside the church. His last mission unaccomplished was Idoani For Christ, slated for September 30 and October 1, 2013 in Idoani, Ondo State. Until his death, he was a widely travelled evangelist with remarkable crusades and prophetic healings around the world. Burial arrangements will be announced by the family and the church soon.

  1. I don't even know who he is, I have never heard of him or his church before now.. Just thinking why he had to bleach to the extent that the cream or whatever he used turned his skin into something else... >>Millicleo<<

  2. He once said he had Vitiligo, don't know how true that is though.
