How Reverend Ezekiel Obiora Battled Illness Till His Last Day
November 28, (THEWILL) – It is no longer news that Rev Obiora Ezekiel, the founder and general overseer of Christian Pentecostal Mission, CPM, is dead. What is however news is how the 78 year-old cleric battled several health issues until he gave up the ghost. The predicament of Rev Ezekiel, who was a fiery preacher and an apostle of strict and austere Christian living, began about 20 years ago when he suddenly went blind. Many thought that would be the end of his ministry, but they were wrong.
The cleric kept ministering on the pulpit and would quote scriptures accurately, despite not being able to read. His ministry continued to flourish and many who were in awe of how he was able to pull through flocked to his church. Some years later, he became confined to a wheelchair, but it slowed his pace rather than stop him from preaching the gospel and his wife, Rev Mrs Mercy Ezekiel, had to take full charge of running the ministry. He battled several ailments, which prevented him from appearing in the public. This became the pattern for some years until he finally gave up the ghost on November 21, 2021.
He is survived by his wife, three adopted children and one biological daughter, Ogechi Ezekiel, who manages the South African branch of the church. Ogechi used to be married to Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo and the marriage produced a son.
