Yinka Badejo, widow of the former general overseer of Foursquare Gospel Church Rev Wilson Badejo, has died at the age of 72.
It was gathered that Badejo’s widow died on November 12. Her husband had passed on on August 7, 2021, at 74.
Family sources told Church Times that she had been ill before her husband’s death.
“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,” the source said.
Yinka was born on October 26, 1949, at Idioro, Ibadan, in Oyo State. She obtained a bachelor’s degree in library studies in 1975 from the University of Ibadan after which she got married to Badejo the same year.
She attended Foursquare Theological Seminary in Ikorodu, Lagos where she obtained a degree in theology in 1998. She was the deputy president of Foursquare Women International.
Yinka founded Dew of Heaven Ministry which focuses on counselling women facing critical challenges.
