Assemblies of God Church Ex-General Superintendent, Charles Osueke is dead

The former  General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God Church in Nigeria, Reverend Charles Osueke has died.

Osueke, who led the church for 22 years as General Superintendent before his retirement in November 2010, died in the early hours of Thursday, a source said.

The 79-year old preacher was hospitalised last week, following a decline in his health but was later discharged from the hospital, Vanguard disclosed.

It was gathered that the cleric had his night devotion as usual on Wednesday night before going to bed but could not make it in the morning as he passed on later.

Confirming the news of his demise, a former Executive Council member of the church, Reverend P. K Emeaba, when contacted, said he had arrived at the Enugu residence of the former GS to condole with the family.

He said Osueke was reported sick a few days ago and taken to the hospital but discharged two days ago, adding that upon the receipt of the sad news he left Okpoto where the church leaders had gathered for a summit, to commiserate with the family.
