The Senior Pastor of the Fountain of Life Church, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, has lost his second wife after two years of battle with cancer.

According to the Nigerian Tribune, the South African wife of the pastor, Pastor Nomthi Odukoya, became the wife of the senior pastor after the death of his wife, Pastor Mrs Bimbo Odukoya, who died in a plane crash in 2005.

However, five years after the death of Pastor Bimbo Odukoya, and with the love and support from friends and family, Pastor Odukoya married a South African, Nomthi, on January 5 2010 and their marriage was blessed with two children.

Nonetheless, for the past two years, Pastor Nomthi Odukoya had been battling with cancer which eventually claimed her life.
