Ebenezer Obey Breaks Silence On Son’s Death
Regarding the passing of his son Olayinka, Ebenezer Obey has spoken out.
The seasoned performer began by saying that he had received a call from doctors informing him that his son Yinka had less than six months to live.
In a statement on Tuesday, the 80-year-old made this disclosure and said that, despite his best efforts to support Olayinka and “fight his weaknesses,” he was unable to do so.
The statement read in parts:-
“The doctors called me six months ago to inform me that Yinka had less than six months to live.
“It was very painful and bad news that a father must not hear about his son.
“Since then, l went back to the Holy Spirit to teach me what to do and the result of my communication with the Holy Spirit is the launching of this ministry.
“I have received several condolence messages from all and sundry. l appreciate everyone for their love and concern. l also thank Yinka’s friends for their efforts and support.”
Speaking further, Ebenezer added: “l thank my eldest son, Shina, for ‘coordinating’ all his younger brothers and sisters, for extra and special care for Yinka till the end of his life. I also thank the pastors, elders, and the entire Decross family for everything.
“Once again, I appreciate all condolences, but let us rather turn further condolences to prayer support of this new ministry to help those who are in pain of alcoholism and drug addiction. Get out of alcoholism, get out of drugs. Jesus loves you.”
