Archbishop God-Dowell Avwomakpa, former South-South chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has lost his wife.
Reportedly Pastor (Mrs) Victoria Avwomakpa died at 68 last Friday.
The deceased spent 48 years marrying the music-loving cleric.
She had been confirmed to have been down for several months with an unidentified ailment.
Avwomakpa is the founder and general overseer of the Crusaders Church of Christ Missionaries in Ekpan near Warri, Delta State.
On Sunday a son of the deceased, Tareri Avwomakpa (Esq.), confirmed his mother’s death by phone.
Describing her passage as “a great loss,” he noted that his mother was pivotal to the growth of the church, which has branches across the state and beyond, as well as great support for Archbishop Avwomakpa, their father.
The lawyer added that his mum would be greatly missed and prayed for her soul’s rest.
