Prophet (Dr.) Wole Bamiduro to the World...'I am sure a day will come that i will no longer be in your midst again, hold yourselves'

The People of Ahmaddiyya Community in Ojokoro LCDA area of Lagos state woke up on Monday January 4, 2016 to the most disturbing and unbelievable news of their life, “Prophet Wole Bamiduro is dead”. The news was not only shocking but quite disturbing as no one ever believe the 62 years old man of God could die so suddenly early in the year.

Not only members of Ahmaddiyya community who have benefitted so much from the Prophetic gifts of Prophet Dr. Oluwole Jacob Bamiduro were shocked but the entire Christian Community in the area and members of his church, Lion of Judah.  To start with, the very agile and always happy-go-lucky Ikare-Akoko, Ondo State-South West Nigeria born man of God who came from a family and linage of Prophets was not sick and never showed any sign of illness before passing away on that very first Monday of the year. In fact, the man of God was said to have woken up very early in the morning of the day to offer his early morning prayers around 5 am and the prayer was almost for two hours, and he equally prayed for all the people living in the church premises (Ayika) before he retired back into his bedroom and slept. It was from his sleep that he passed away. A family source who confided in this blog said ‘The Rosary he used to pray was still hanging on his finger when we burst into his room after we discovered he is gone”.
A death foretold by the bearer… 
The biggest irony of the entire death scenario of Prophet (Dr.) Wole Bamiduro aka Lion of Judah was the fact that he himself has predicted his death severally and has always told his followers and family that “I can go anytime and I think you people should get your acts together and continue from where I stopped”. On three occasions before year 2015 wind up  Prophet Bamiduro  was alleged to have warned  his congregation about the possibility of his death anytime soon? One was in August 2015 during the Wedding Ceremony of one of his daughters Dupe and the second was on December 5, 2015 during his church anniversary and launching of his last album “Special Message”. The man of God who is also a gospel musician is said to have continued to warn his members, followers and families that “You people don’t know these things. I can tell you that something big will happen soon and if it happens, a lot of you will want to run away. But I encourage you not to run away because there is nothing that will happen without the knowledge of God Almighty. I am telling you that if I leave today, don’t think any witch or wizard killed me, it is God Himself that took me away. So, be prepared”. 

“You people must get yourself together because anytime the call can come and you must not run. You must hold yourself and do what is expected of you”

“Don’t burry me in a Coffin and…”
Prophet (Dr.) Oluwole Jacob Bamiduro in his lifetime was said to have given three separate warnings; one was that nobody should mourn over his death as God knows much about it and it was just the appropriate time for him to go. However, the most important warning he allegedly gave and which he attached severe consequences in terms of placing a curse on whoever flouted it was the one concerning the way he wanted to be buried. The great man of God who has discovered and has equally raised over 1000 Men of God and Prophets including the famous founder of Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN) Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua in his over 25 years of ministry work was said to have warned members of his immediate family that on no account should his corpse be buried in a casket as he cherished to be buried in the Muslim fashion just with his clothes alone into the soil without any fanfare. Founder as he was famously addressed in his lifetime was said to have warned both members of his immediate family and the Christian community that on no account should that order be flouted or else it will boomerang with dare consequences on any body or group of persons who flouted it. The third all important warning he gave was the one concerning the location of his burial site, the great man of God who would have clocked 62 this coming February 25 warned that on no account should his body be taken to Ikare-Akoko his home town in Ondo state for burial. He was said to have even laid a curse on any one that tries to change that instruction and carry out another order, saying such a person will bear a very terrible consequence in life. Dr. Bamiduro was said to have enjoined his family to burry him within the confines of his Lion of Judah Church on No 1-7 Wole Bamiduro Street, by Ahmaddiya Bus stop along Lagos-Abeokuta express road.
The veteran Prophet was alleged to have ordered that his tomb should lie within the premises of his own church and not any other place and that any family member who flouted his instruction regarding the way he wants to be buried will face a very tough spiritual consequence.

His Very Last Moments revealed by wife and aide
Speaking to Asabeafrika during his wake keep service on Thursday January 7th, one of his aides who pleaded anonymity as he was not authorized to speak by the family said “Founder became so interesting with words in his last days on earth. He became so funny, always casting jokes and talking in parables and he will dance and celebrate at any given opportunity. Even his last Sunday Service on Sunday January 3rd, he gave the sermon, gave prophetic messages to many people who came to worship and he will always pause and say “You people must get yourself together because anytime the call can come and you must not run. You must hold yourself and do what is expected of you”
The aide who is very close to Founder  gave a vivid illustration of how the Ikare Akoko born renowned Prophet  hinted them about his exit from this world “Last December 5, we just finished our annual anniversary and launching of his sixth  album (Special Message) and we all retired to his office. There were large number of visitors who came to see him from all over; and some of them jokingly asked him “Founder, won’t you buy us drinks to celebrate this occasion; you always buy us drinks in the past?” But he replied and said “Ah, I can’t buy you drinks again. I can only serve you water or wine, which one you chose” So, I teased him, I said “What about me? Won’t you buy me a drink?” and he replied “You don’t drink, your brand is either juice or malt and I can afford that for you now”. Then he paused and said “You people, this might even be the last harvest I will be doing with you”. I quickly rebuked him and said “Ah, ah, Founder, why should you be saying such funny words? Who told you that and why are you scaring us?” But he just laughed it off and responded “Look, I can go anytime. My advice is that you people should always endeavor to do this anniversary every year. If you can afford a cow buy one and do it. If you can’t afford a cow, just contribute among yourself and make sure you celebrate the anniversary” That was his very last warning to us on that Saturday December 5.

“We wouldn’t have known if not for a male visitor who came to see him that early hour of the day and that was how we knew he was not breathing again. In fact, the rosary he used in praying that morning was still hanging on his fingers on the bed.”

Prophet (Dr.) Oluwole Jacob Bamiduro...'If i die, no witch or wizard killed me. It is God's time'

Speaking further, one of his elder wives Mama Femi who is now in her mourning period while speaking to Asabeafrika during her husband’s Christian Wake Keep Service and Lying-in State ceremony Yesterday (Thursday January 7) gave her own version “I just discovered that in the last one month or two, my husband’s skin started glowing and he was always looking dashing in his dresses. And I will joke with him and say ‘What sort of cream are you using Founder that your skin is now glowing? And he will say “nothing” that, it is the glory of God on him. In fact a day before his death, I still joked with him, I said you must tell me about the cream you use and he responded by saying to me ‘I am not using any cream, I only apply oil on my face” so, I said “Give me that oil” and he said “Come and have it tomorrow”.
Mama Femi spoke further on her husband’s last moments on earth “On Sunday January 5, he was in his best mood, he was the one that gave the sermon and he was also the choir master for the day. He raised several thanks giving songs and danced so well. In fact I was happy within myself, I said ‘thank God Founder is happy today ooo’; and then, he also gave so many people prophetic messages, very strong ones, in fact, some people were even moved to emotion. Then he gave general prophecies on the economy, politics and the nation at large. He said one that really struck my attention, he said “This year, many powerful people will die and pass away” he kept re-emphasizing it. I didn’t realize the message was also for him. So, I said ‘this is a great service today’ because we closed the service at 3pm. During the service he also asked us if we saw the people passing by on the street and we said ‘no, the one we saw are people, physical people hawking things’ Then, he shook his head again  and said “If you people’s inner eyes were opened and you see the thousands of angels passing by, you will fear. I am seeing them in white and I can’t count them, they are in multitude. They are passing through now, now, now”. That was how he handled his last Sunday on earth. I think he ate and went to bed at 9pm”. As usual he always wakes up as early as 5am to conduct early morning prayers for the church which he did on that Monday morning. In fact, he did individual prayers for many people living in the church premises and he went in to have his early morning rest and that was it”

Prophet (Dr.) Oluwole Jacob Bamiduro...'All of you should hold yourself'

How Bamiduro died…
That morning, he woke up to organize the normal 5am early Morning Prayer for worshipers living on the premises and after that he went back to bed. Normally he will rest from that 6:30am till about 9am when he will resume in his office for the day’s job. But this time around, he just went in and from his sleep he passed away. We wouldn’t have known if not for a male visitor who came to see him that early hour of the day and that was how we knew he was not breathing again. In fact, the rosary he used in praying that morning was still hanging on his fingers on the bed. I had escorted one of my daughters who were to travel that morning to the bus stop and I only returned home to rest only for someone to wake me with the bedlam. I was astonished when I rushed in and saw him in that condition, I raised alarm and we rushed him into the car. Someone said we should rush him to General Hospital but I directed the driver to Mofam, a private hospital near by. And when the doctor checked him, he said ‘Madam, he is gone’ I said ‘Gone to where sir?’ and the Doctor just bluntly told us that Founder is dead and that was when reality dawned on us all. It was like a drama”
His No Hospital-Vistis History
On if her husband was suffering from an undisclosed ailment that was not known to the public, Mama Femi reacted this way “Since I married Founder many years ago (Her daughter is also married with a child) I have never seen him sick, ill to the extent of visiting any hospital. He is so strong, so fitted and he always mocks us whenever we go to the hospital. He will say ‘you people are just wasting your money because there are traditional herbs that can heal you here and I don’t know why you like making the Doctor richer. Yes, even if Baba is sick or tired, the worst he does is to invite the Doctor home to test him and after few medications he is back to his feet. Beyond that he was an agile person who never gives room for any kind of illness. So, he never had any illness and even until death, he was hale and hearty and was always in good spirit. I don’t think someone that is ill will wake up in the morning and conduct two hours prayer” 

“My husband was a good man, a kind man, a very generous and hospitable Nigerian. He has harbored uncountable people in this compound and raised many great men of God and that alone was his greatest achievement in life”.

I don’t want to be 70 before I die---Wole Bamiduro
However, one shocking reality this blog found out about the late Prophet of God who is equally called Eyin Ejo in several quarters was his spiritual commitment not to live beyond 70 years on earth. It was widely alleged and acknowledged by his members that Dr. Wole Bamiduro has said it on several occasions that he won’t like to clock 70 before his return home. Asabeafrika asked Mama Femi to confirm this allegation which she did “Yes, he actually said that and the day he said it, I was angry with him and I said ‘stop giving bad prophecy unto yourself’ and he said to me ‘don’t interfere in my own supplications to God. You ask for your own grace and leave me with my own grace. I don’t want to clock 70 before I die and that is my deal with God. You just face your own life and tell Him what you want, and since then we kept looking at him and we never knew he will go so soon”
Mama Femi who is also a prophetess regretted that she didn’t see this death coming to her man “I used to dream and see things before they come to pass and I will tell him, of course he is equally a great prophet but when I see things and I tell him, he will quickly act on it. But recently, I have been sleeking sound and I don’t have these dreams again. I will just sleep off and that is it. I never knew death was lurking around the corner and so fast to come in early January”
She spoke further on the great man of God “My husband was a good man, a kind man, a very generous and hospitable Nigerian. He has harbored uncountable people in this compound and raised many great men of God and that alone was his greatest achievement in life. He was a go getter and a man who was not materialistic.
There was a time Armed Robbers stole his car on the other street and the driver rushed home to tell him. The driver said “Daddy, we can chase them if you tell the church boys to join me” but my husband said to him “No armed robber can steal my car and moreover it is dangerous for you people to be chasing Armed Robbers, why should you endanger your life by chasing armed robbers? Lo and behold, those boys dropped the car at MICCOM and snatched another person’s car to escape. So, the next day, the owner of the newly stolen car went to the station to report that the robbers dropped their own car and snatched his own but before he got to he station my husband had already alerted the Police that the car dropped at MICCCOM belonged to him and that was how he got his car back”
Before his death and between Friday January 1st and Sunday January 3rd he called many friends, family members and long term relatives and greeted them. In fact he spent a fortune on recharge cards, calling and greeting and even making jests with some on phone, we didn’t know he was saying Good bye.
Prophet (Dr.) Oluwole Jacob Bamiduro is buried today January 8, 2016 at his Ahmaddiyya, Ojokoro LCDA Lion of Judah Church cathedral at 10 am. He is survived by wives, children and grand children.
This blog wish the kind and Great Prophet of God a peaceful rest in the bosom of Eternal God of Creation. Amen.

  1. This is an official communication from The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN). Our attention has been drawn to an article on your website titled, 'How Man Who Discovered TB Joshua Died Few Hours After Predicting His Own Death'.

    We wish to state that the information in this article concerning Prophet T.B. Joshua is untrue and nothing more than a rumour. If indeed the man in question was the one who discovered TB Joshua, you would see Emmanuel TV celebrating his death, as was the case of Evangelist Bill Subritzky who recently passed onto glory. We should be careful not to misinform the general public.
