Edo: Female pastor allegedly beats man to death during deliverance
TVC E. There was chaos in a community in Benin recently when a man allegedly died during deliverance in a church in Edo state. It was gathered that the man died during a deliverance session at Hope Deliverance Ministry, Ukwanga street, Oselu quarters in the state. In a viral video, residents in the area were seen in their numbers trooping into the church to see the remains of the unidentified man. A member of the church who claimed to have witnessed the deliverance section said that the victim who was allegedly possessed by evil spirit, was proving stubborn leading to the pastor pushing him hard to make sure he fell to the ground. The victim allegedly fell, hit his head on a generator set and died.
The body of the victim was later placed in a car inside the church premises. The sister to the deceased, Osas, claimed that her brother was beaten to death. “They beat him to death. They removed the cloth that he was putting on before, cleaned him up and wore him another cloth. They said they were taking him to the mortuary and we said no.” However, the pastor of the church, Mrs. Ogundaye Isoke said: “We have been taking care of him (the deceased) without money. We save soul. We don’t destroy soul. We don’t kill here; we don’t beat here. If they bring insane people we heal.”
