Pastor stuck in shrine trying to destroy idols

Published by Kemi Filani on Sun, 25 Sep 2016


A pastor, identified as Wale Fagbere, got stuck in a shrine inKetu community in Ayetoro area of Yewa North local government, Ogun State while destroying the traditional worshipers' items.According to Sunday Vanguard, the pastor, whose church could not be ascertained as of the time of this report, became unconscious in the shrine.Fagbere was reported to have earlier told his congregation that he had been directed by God to destroy all the shrines in Ketu community. An attempt to destroy the shrine boomeranged as he got stuck in the place, prompting residents to raise the alarm.Further findings showed that the priests in charge of the shrine insisted that until they performed some ritual on him, he could not be let off the hook.The intervention of the Alaye of Ayetoro, Oba Abdulaziz Adelakun, however saved the cleric as he was treated by the priests before he regained consciousness.Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident,said the man might be charged for sacrilege and malicious damage. He said:'The police got the report inAyetoro that one Evangelist Wale Fagbere went to Ketu to destroy a shrine. After the destruction, the man became unconscious.When policemen visited the place, the traditionalists claimed that the subject could not be taken away until some spiritual exercise had been performed.The Alaye of Ayetoro, Oba AbdulAzeez Adelakun, waded into the matter which led to the release of the man. The victim has been revived and has been handed over to his family for more spiritual cleansing'.When asked who the police would charge, the traditionalists or the victim, the PPRO said the latter would be charged for sacrilege and malicious damage after he gets well. He said the police next step would be determined by the traditionalists lodging of a complaint against the pastor.'Everybody has right to worship anything he so desires', Oyeyemi said.
