September 26, 2016 – Nigerian Pastor Arrested While Destroying Traditional Shrine In Ayetoro Ogun State Facing Charges

The Abeokuta-based Pastor who under the leading of the ‘Spirit’ raced to Ogun Shrine in Ketu area of Ayetoro in Yewa North LGA of Ogun state over the weekend has been arrested.

Pastor Wale Fagbere who reportedly has a church in the area stormed the Ogun (god of thunder) shrine on Saturday and pulled down some of the fetish items there but while he was proceeding into the inner chamber, he suddenly became numb and unconscious.

He was rescued by the timely intervention of the traditional ruler of Ayetoro town, Oba Adelakun Abdulaziz who directed some traditionalists in the town to perform some rituals on him.

Police stormed Wagbere’s home today and arrested him for malicious damage and breach of public peace.

Ogun Police spokesperson says Wagbere would be charged to court soon.

    Very serious incident indeed. The pastor have gone too far. One truth and fact that will remain is,there will always be diversity and deferences in religion and it freedom of worship. While you look at other religion in disdain,you should also expect that other people that belong to other set of religion will also detest and refer to yours as false region. So, many believe their form of worship is the best and better than others.

    And that is why every religious individual must be careful so that his or her actions will not be interpreted as encroaching on the right to freedom of worship of others.

    We don’t have to stop people from exercising their right to freedom of worship by destroying their place of worship.

    Ours as christians is to preach the word of God to them and allow God’s word to take root in their hearts and mind and in Gods due time,the seed of God’s word we sowed in their hearts will grow and they will make changes in their form of worship with time and come to serve the true God.

    We don’t have to use force to deprive others from carrying out their religious duties in their respective places of worship. Our God of peace may not be in support of that. Perhaps that was what resulted to the numbness and unconsciousness of that pastor while he was destroying “THE GOD OF THUNDER SHRINE” . Who knows what would have happen to him if it had not been the timely intervention of the traditional ruler of the area who requested that ritual be perform by the traditionalists to rescue his life? On the other hand the police should try and restore calm to the region rather than bringing multiple charges on the pastor.

      I agree with you Endure. God is not an author of confusion and He would not pay for what He did not order. Holy Spirit did not instruct him to go their. If God had ordered him to destroy the shrine he would not be numbed and go unconscious to the extent that they had to carry out rituals on him. What a disgrace to him and his ministry that Ogun had to be appease on his behalf before he could regain his consciousness. He has forgotten that his foundation is connected to the occult “Fagbere”

    The devil finally got that dummy, Jesus says preach the gospel and mine will follow me. This is what naivety gets a zealot who is been impelled by uninformed instincts. He is lucky they did not leave him to die like sacrificial dog, l hope other mumu or miracle oriented pastors would not step into similar shit!

    How callous! this the height of stupidity this man tried to bring more gullible Nigerians to his ‘church’ by destroying ogun shrine. . This is lawlessness.The decision to charge him to court is good as this will send strong message to other ‘pastors/prophets’, his action is akin to terrorist who is terrorising African traditional religion and destroying their places of worship.The traditional religions don’t constitute nuisance in the neighborhoods they are patriotic. Everyone has right to worship whatever they choose. Live and let live!

    If a native juju priest came into the church with similar intentions, the same will happen to him….some times you dont have to run faster than the spirit, you can destroy them all with prayers even from inside of your heart. Its not by MIGHT but by the Spirit.. God deliver you from their evil.. Amen

    Christianity is and was the religion of the slave master, of the invader. It is not African. It is the spiritual perspective of a people from a far away land. How as black people, as Africans can this be reconciled? Especially African Americans. Your ancestors were murdered, raped and tortured and forced into Christianity. It is the masters chains that now they CHOOSE to wear. Time to return to native roots, to what is beautiful, powerful and what makes you African.

      I agree EDY ENCINIAS! We will forever wander aimlessly throughout the African Diaspora, misguided by our oppressors as long as we keep showing contempt and disdain for the spiritual beliefs of our ancestors. No major positive change and true power through self-awareness will come to us until we fully embrace our ancestors and their spiritual history.

      I hate how I find you everywhere I look. And I love it. No one can tell me that fate is not real. Even though the fated may ignore it. Why do I find you when I’m not looking for you? Why do I find you when you have clearly meant to hide yourself from me. And yet right in front of me there you are. Reading, minding my own Business. And there you are. Our energy attracts and pushes away, attracts and pushes away… i’m sure you’ll never see this. A comment buried two years past. So because of that I will say. I will always love you. You’re a part of me like my ancestor nature. And will you deny it, because you can’t. I am part of you….
