The singer would be laid to rest at a private interment on Thursday, December 15th, which would be strictly by invitation.

Sammie Okposo died in his sleep on Friday, November 25th, at the age of 51.

Speaking on the singer’s death, the lead Pastor of the LOGIC Church, Flourish Peters, revealed the last moments of the gospel singer.

According to Pastor Flourish Peters, Sammie Okposo’s wife found him asleep on a chair, apparently, he slept into glory.

“On Friday, I received a troubling call around 4.45 am – a call I wish I never received. But it is what it is. It was Ozy Okposo (Sammie Okposo’s wife’s name) on the other side of the phone saying ‘Sammie, wake up in Jesus’ name’.

“So, contrary to what blogs reported, he did not slump and die. He sat on the chair watching TV, before sleeping. But never went back upstairs to sleep. From his sleep, he slept into glory.

“I went there and saw the body. I conducted CPR and hit him hard. But nobody sees Jesus and looks away. It becomes challenging when a believer crosses over to the other side. It is deeply painful for me. I feel hurt”, Peter said.
