Godwin Cena David, a Facebook user wrote “RCCG Gospel minister Michael Arowosaiye commits suicide in Lokogoma District, Abuja. According to sources, he had accommodation issue that led to depression. Acts 4 [NIV][vs: 34] There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales

[vs: 35] and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need. I keep saying it..they say I am the Antichrist. Continue wasting ur time and enriching these greedy folks. “

The acting spokesman, Federal Capital Territory Police Command, ASP Gajere Danjuma, confirmed the incident to Punch. His remain was deposited in a nearby morgue.
