Pentecostal Pastor Should Be Charged For Invading Shrine – Ogun Police Public Relations Officer Says
The Ogun State Police Command on Monday vowed to prosecute a Pentecostal pastor, Wale Fagbere, who allegedly invaded a traditional shrine in the Ketu area of Ayetoro.
“What he did was wrong and so he must be charged to court. If it was the other way round too, they would also be charged to court.
Everyone has a right to worship whatever deity one chooses to worship without fear”, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr. Abimbola Oyeyemi said.
Oyeyemi, however, added that he could not tell in which court the accused would be arraigned as of press time.
It will be recalled that Fagbere on Saturday attempted to pull down a traditional shrine in Ketu, in the Yewa North Local Government Area, Ogun State.
But he was reported to have gone numb upon entering the shrine, attracting a crowd to the scene.
He, however, regained consciousness after the traditional ruler of the town, Oba Abdulaziz Adelakun, intervened and directed that some traditional rites be performed on him.
