destroy the idols in a shrine in Ketu, a community in Ayetoro, Yewa North Local Government Area of Ogun State.
Punch correspondent gathered that
the pastor whose church could not

motionless and speechless after he
had allegedly destroyed some shrines in the town.

reported to have told his
congregation that he had a
revelation to destroy all the shrines
in Ketu community. After being found transfixed in the shrine, residents of the area raised
the alarm, following which custodians of the shrines came to the place.

perform some rites before the cleric
could regain his sense. The rites were performed following

appealed to the priests to ‘release’
The state acting Police Public

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.

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.”
