A source quoted a close relative of the deceased as saying Rev Mrs Yinka had been ill even before her husband’s demise.


“Her husband was concerned about her health before he died. Ironically, her husband was not sick before he died. It was Mrs Badejo that had been ill.” said the source.

It was learnt that the church may have to wait until the end of its ongoing annual convention before making official statement on her death.
