The son of the late Apostle Timothy Obadare, founder of World Soul Winning Evangelical Ministry has announced that his father would be buried in a gold-plated casket.
Pastor Paul Obadare said it was a mark of honour for his contributions to Christendom.
“The coffin to be used for the burial of our father, Apostle Timothy Obadare, is taken after the type used for the burial of the late Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston,” he said.
“Our father was a renowned teacher of the bible, a great missionary, crusader and devoted apostle of Jesus Christ. He lived a well-fulfilled exemplary life of a good Christian,” said Paul, who is the General Overseer of the church in the United States of America,
“He served man and God before his passing. We the children, biological and spiritual, have come together to give him a deserving burial as a national figure.
“There will be service of songs in Ilesha, Akure, Ibadan and Lagos, while he will be interred at a mausoleum prepared for his final rest at WOSEM conference ground at Ilesha-Ife, in Osun State,” he added.
According to reports, the Batesville-branded golden caskets cost between $25,000 and $30,000.
