Ex-Anglican Bishop Peter Adebiyi dies at 79
Former Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Lagos West, Peter Adebiyi, is dead.
Born in 1943, Adebiyi died in the early hours of Friday.
He was the Bishop of the diocese between 1999 and 2013 when he retired.
His successor, Bishop Olusola Odedeji, announced his death in a message to members of the Diocese on Friday morning.
He wrote, “Good morning brothers and sisters. It is sad and heartbreaking to announce the home call of our patriarch and hero, Papa Peter Awelewa Adebiyi, a few hours ago.
“May his industrious and loving soul rest in perfect peace. May God console us all.”
