Reports says the pastor, Wale Fagbere is likely to face a charge of sacrilege and malicious damage.
Wale Fagbere, a pastor of a church in Ogun State, has been rendered motionless while trying to destroy a shrine.
According to reports, Fagbere had told members of his congregation that he received a revelation to destroy all the shrines in Ketu , located in
Ayetoro, Yewa North Local Government of the state.
Residents of the community found the pastor rooted to the ground and unable to speak, which gave rise to pandemonium that attracted other members of the area, including the traditional priests.
Oba Abdulaziz Adelakun , the Alaye of Ayetoro , appealed to the priests to restore the dare devil back to his normal condition.
The priests however insisted that some rituals must be performed before this is done.
According to Abimbola Oyeyemi, who is the acting Police Public Relations Officer of the state, Fagbere is likely to face a charge of sacrilege and malicious damage, Punch News reports.
“The command got the report at its division in Ayetoro that one Evangelist Wale Fagbere went to Ketu to destroy traditional worshippers’ shrines. After the destruction, the man became motionless and could not talk.”
“When the policemen visited the place, the traditionalists said the subject could not be taken away until some rites were performed. The victim was revived and handed over to his family for more spiritual cleansing”, he said.
