Pastor Adebiyi Adam, one of the associates of the late popular Ibadan-based cleric Prophet Michael Olowere, has described his last moments as a transition into glory.
Adam, the District Coordinating Superintendent, Christ Apostolic Church, Oke Agbara, Ashi, Ibadan, said in Ibadan on Friday that the deceased had a premonition of his death.
While speaking at the residence of the late pastor in the Ashi area of Ibadan, he said that Olowere, popularly known as Baba Automatic, did not die of sickness.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that scores of church members, ministers of God and other mourners were seen thronging Olowere’s residence to commiserate with his wife and children over the incident, which they described as painful.

Recounting Olowere’s last moments, he said the deceased knew he would be with his maker before 7 p.m. on Wednesday and had prepared the minds of everyone around him.
Adam said that the late prophet was sound-minded and received the best treatment, adding that he wanted his privacy during his last days on earth.
He, however, cautioned those peddling unfounded stories about the deceased to take caution, saying that he left at a ripe age and with no scandal.
“It happened the way it should be, not even one of his biological or spiritual children died before him.
“Baba Olowere foretold his departure from earth. He said that before 7 p.m. that day (Wednesday), he would be gone and asked that arrangements be made for his transition. When it was 5:24 p.m., he breathed his last.
“Whatever prayer we said, he would only say ‘amen’ to the one he liked. He had set things in order and called for unity after his demise.
“He died while actively serving God,” the cleric said.
Adam said that the deceased’s senses were functional, as well as his limbs, adding: “he died a fulfilled man, having impacted the world positively for Jesus Christ.
“He had a sense of appreciation and even compensated all who took care of him in his last days.”
