Former Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Lagos-West, Peter Adebiyi, has passed away at the age of 77.
Adebiyi died in the early hours of Friday, according to his successor, Bishop Olusola Odedeji.
The late ex-bishop who was born on 27 April 1943 passed away two months to his 78th birthday.
Adebiyi retired as the bishop of the diocese in 2013 after about 14 years in the position which he held from 1999.
“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,” Odedeji announced in a message to members of the diocese on Friday morning.
