According to reports, he died on Wednesday, May 5, 2021. Before his death, Kayode Badru had landed in Lagos from Dubai to attend the graduation ceremony of 40 students he gave scholarships to study at Academy For Innovative Art and Technology (ACIATECH).
After attending the graduation ceremony, he visited his church on Wednesday for Isegun – (Victory) programme. He was asked to kneel down at the middle of the church and was surrounded with white candles. He also held one candle in his hands.
While kneeling down, a prophet began to spray perfume on his body and within a few minutes, his body was on fire due to his closeness to the candles and strong attraction from the perfume. He was rushed to a hospital in Gbagada, where he eventually died.
