Village sources told The Nation that the deceased had planned to start his own ministry and that he announced he would go to the “wilderness” to obtain power from God before operating his own ministry.
His corpse was discovered by one of his members who had gone to check on him in the bush where he had gone. Eke is the only son of his mother. In fact it was members of the community under the leadership of Tochukwu Ekeh (Angle 90) who are going to bear the burden of burying him.
