SAD: Bishop of Sokoto Diocese Dies

SAD! Sokoto Anglican Diocese Mourns Bishop

The Church of Nigeria has been thrown into mourning as one of her Bishops joins the Saints Triumphant today, 8th of April, 2021.

He is the Rt. Rev’d (Dr.) Augustine Akinyele Omole, the Bishop of Sokoto Diocese in Anglican Communion. This was made public by the Anglican Clergy and Laity Forum after it was shared by an insider, Yinka Joe-Fadile via Facebook.

Details relating to his death are yet to be revealed.

Meanwhile, according to the Sokoto Anglican Diocese Facebook page, the late Rt, Rev’d (Dr.) Augustine Akinyele Omole celebrated his 20th-years episcopal Anniversary on Wednesday 29th July – 2nd August 2020.

This means he has been a Bishop for 20 years.

See the photos from the Anniversary.

The late Bishop was also spotted during Maundy Thursday, Easter eve, washing the Feet of his Priests as Jesus did to His disciples in his Cathedral, Holy Trinity Cathedral, Sokoto. Just exactly 7 days ago.

He is survived by a beautiful wife and 3 daughters. We mourn with the Sokoto Diocese and the Church of Nigeria as a whole and pray the Lord to rest his soul.
