By Precious Igbonwelundu

The Police in Lagos this  evening uncovered an illegal healing centre where about 15 persons were chained.

It was gathered that some of the victims had been chained since 2014 at the place called Blessings of Godness Healing Church in Isheri Osun, Egbe Idimu.

It was gathered that some of the victims had suffered certain health challenges which their families termed spiritual and dumped them at the facility for divine healing.

At the time of this report, 12 of the victims had been rescued while efforts were on to evacuate the rest.

It was gathered that some of the victims could barely walk and were assisted out first.

This discovery is coming in the wake of police raid of various religious places where many people have been held captive for several years.

    This is not new,several healing home abound in every states of Nigeria because due to economic hardship most family couldn’t afford cost of taking the victims to psychiatric hospitals. The only options for them is to patronize the cheapest spiritual homes for solutions. If only government can take care of her citizens welfare as in other climes,those ‘illegal’ healing homes will reduce or where can the family keep them cos dangers they may pose for the public.
