A pastor, Wale Fagbere, found himself trapped while trying to destroy a shrine in Ketu, a community in Nigeria’s Ogun State.
According to a report by the Punch newspaper, the pastor proceeded to the shrine after claiming that he had received a revelation from God that shrines in the community must be destroyed.
He reportedly became motionless and speechless while trying to destroy the idols in the shrine.
His predicament drew cries from residents who pleaded with the custodians of the land to intervene.
The chief of the community, Oba Abdulaziz Adelakun, is said to have performed certain rituals before the pastor regained his senses.
The Ogun State police public relations officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the report, saying police officials had been called to the scene.
“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.
