The   Head, Media and Public Relations, RCCG, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, while commiserating with the family of the deceased, said Arowosaiye had left the church before the incident.

He said, “For us as human beings, it is painful that somebody has committed suicide. So, it is not right to begin to say whether he  was  with us or not. So, we to first sympathise with the family.

“The report we have is that he used to be one of the singers in one of our parishes in Abuja. He left the church a while ago to join the Shepherdhill Ministry, where he became their choirmaster. So, as of this time, we cannot say that he  was  our member.

“Secondly, if he were our member, there is a tradition in RCCG whereby every parish attempts to assist every member under stress. So, if he were our member or minister and had some challenges, he could have approached his pastors.”
