Prominent bishop dies

Senior pastor of Five Porches of Deliverance Church, Bishop J. Rodney Roberts, died late last night following several weeks of illness, sources said.

On July 6, the bishop suffered a stroke and was well on his way to full recovery, however, he suffered a heart attack which, Eyewitness News understands, led to his passing.

The christian community described the bishop as charismatic and bold in his prophetic declarations.

Bishop Roberts would have celebrated his 64th birthday this coming Saturday.
