A pastor, Wale Fagbere, was rendered unconscious and speechless at the weekend after invading a community shrine at Ketu – Ayetoro in Yewa North Local Government Area of Ogun in a bid to pull it down.



He was believed to have been trapped at the shrine by forces suspected to be spirits.

Fagbare was said to have boasted before his members he would flatten the shrine where the community traditionalists congregate to worship.
But he was said to have been rendered motionless until people spotted him.

It was gathered those who sighted him in his agony, unable to lift his feet, raised the alarm, which drew attention of priests in charge of the shrine.

It was learnt the priests demanded some rituals must be carried out before the trapped pastor could be set him free.

He was, however, said to have regained consciousness after treatment following intervention of the Alaye of Ayetoro, Oba Abdulaziz Adelakun.
Ogun Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.

He hinted the cleric may be charged with “sacrilege and malicious damage.”

According to Oyeyemi: “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 unconscious, motionless and could not talk.

“When the policemen visited the place, the traditionalists claimed that the subject cannot be taken away until some spiritual exercise was performed.”

He added: “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 handed over to his family.

“The police’s next step would be determined by the traditionalists.

“If they complain to the Police about the destruction of their shrine, the victim would be charged for sacrilege and malicious damage.
“Everybody has right to worship anything he so desires.”

  2. I've been saying it, stop meddling with other people's faith. The God whose power you want to show off says, DO NOT JUDGE SO THAT YOU WILL NOT BE JUDGED. When Jesus was with us on earth, He did not go about destroying shrines or comdenming others' faiths, He only warns. Religious faith is a very delicate issue that every body must respect.

  5. Jesus Christ is an an ancestor to certain people and they reserve the right to worship him just as much as we have the rights to worship our own ancestors. This ambition to lord things over the indeginous heritage should stop. It is a hangover of inferiority complex.
