On Sunday, 18 August, 2013, news went round town that the Pastor of popular Gospel singer, Tope Alabi, Pastor Elijah Iretiola Ajanaku, had died after an undisclosed illness.
Although his death was confirmed by a team of doctors on Thursday night (August 22) after several vigil of prayers since Saturday evening when his health deteriorated.
Some of his church members still harbour the illusion that Ajanaku would wake up from dead even as controversies surrounding the death of the controversial cleric persist.
Prophet Ajanaku who hailed from the Owo Ope family in Gbongan is survived by his wife, Joy and two  children, Stella and Apotieri.
Though he was born a Moslem over 40 years ago in Gbongan, he moved to Lagos in the 90s and settled in Ipaja Ayobo area where he acquired skills in many vocations and engaged in several trades before his encounter with God. He founded and shepherded the Christ Revival Victory Chapel International, Ayobo, Ipaja, Lagos and rose to become the President of The Ajanaku World Outreach, a ministry devoted to the spread of the gospel outside the church. His last mission unaccomplished was Idoani For Christ, slated for September 30 and October 1, 2013 in Idoani, Ondo State. Until his death, he was a widely traveled evangelist with remarkable crusades and prophetic healings around the world.
