Pastor Adeboye’s Chief of Staff, Olorunnimbe, Dies At 60

Pastor Adetokunbo Abayomi Olorunnimbe, the Chief of Staff and Chief Private Secretary to Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, is dead.

Olorunnimbe passed away peacefully on Saturday March 30, aged 60 years.


His death was confirmed in Lagos by his son, Olaolu, who also revealed that burial arrangements will be announced soon.

Olorunnimbe was born on May 26, 1958 in the United Kingdom to Hon. Justice Ishola Adekunle Olorunnimbe, OON and late Simisola Adetoun Olorunnimbe.

He got married to Modupe Olorunnimbe (nee Botu) in April 1987.

Tokunbo and Modupe are parents to Folasayo and Olaolu. They wove their life around their family, the church, and community.

Theirs was a life and home filled with love, laughter, music, friendship, and faith. Olorunnimbe was a man who daily practiced gracious hospitality.

The eldest son of Hon. Justice I. A. Olorunnimbe, he was known affectionately by his siblings as “Broda Adey.” As a man of faith, Olorunnimbe was deeply devoted to the life of the church. He served in many ways at the Redeemed Christian Church of God: He served as the pastor of several parishes and was pastor of RCCG City of Palms.

As Private Secretary to the General Overseer, he was a highly trusted and respected member of the church. He never wanted praise for any of his labour of love, but always saw his service to the church, to the community, and to his family as a way of sharing his love for God.

A fierce intellectual, Tokunbo was trained as a lawyer in the University of Lagos and Cambridge University.

He was stimulated by cerebral debates and was a man who was always up for the adventure of life. But no matter what he was doing, he enjoyed his time with his family – including his church family – more than anything.

Olorunnimbe is survived by his wife Dr Modupe Olorunnimbe, their children: Folasayo Williams, Laolu Olorunnimbe, a son in law Bode Williams, and two grandchildren: Olasheni and Oluwateniola Williams.

He is also survived by his father Hon. Justice I. A. Olorunnimbe, OON, brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
