The death of the General Overseer of the New Generation Bible Church International, Bishop Godwin Elomobor, has been announced.

He was the first Pentecostal Bishop of Kano, according to a statement by the church’s National Coordinator, Revd. Sam Eboigbe, on Monday.

“Our Bishop went to be with the Lord on January 8, 2022 in the United States of America. He was aged 66 years after a protracted illness. He worked at various capacities with First Bank and African International Bank, spanning 10 years before he went into full-time ministry in 1989.

“Bishop G.I. Elomobor is survived by his wife, Anthonia Elomobor, three children and three grandchildren. He will be sadly missed but our joy is that he is with his Maker, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Details of the funeral will be communicated in due course by God’s grace,” the statement partly reads.
