The robbers numbering four were said to have robbed somewhere around 3.00am on May 30, 2017, and wanted to escape through Sanctuary Blessing Church when they jumped into the church premises through the fence.

They reportedly ran into Pastor Adeyinka, who lived with his bereaved family in the church.
Report said the robbers stabbed the 56-year-old before scaling the fence of the church and fled.

It was said that the pastor was pronounced dead at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, where he was rushed to.

A Facebook user, Amah Joyce Eze who was Pastor Adeyinka’s neighbour before his demise spoke highly of him in a tribute she posted.

She wrote: “He is a pastor of C.A.C in my former street, always ringing the bell at 12 midnight for prayers. So humble that when he greets a small girl like me he always bow down. Simple, gentle going man. Only for absconding thief’s to run into his Church while praying as usual and machete him, that’s how you met your death too early for us but God knows best. Rest in peace Pastor Ibukunoluwa Theophilus Adeyinka. We will miss you here on earth.”
