A self acclaimed prophet of an old generation church in deep trouble in Ondo State over allegations of being fetish in his ministerial activities. The prophet, Moses Abiodun was equally accused of obtaining money under false pretence from unsuspecting members of the public, who thronged his church for miracles and deliverance from poverty and satanic attacks.
His Church, Christ Apostolic Church, CAC, Agbala Dagunduro located at Kilometre 5, Ijare Road, Ikota Junction in Ifedore Local Government Area of the state has been sealed by security operatives in the state.
Findings by Vanguard showed that acting on a tip off by a confidant of the suspect who reportedly fell out with him when the church started making waves and the church’s bank account started swelling, officials of the corps who later swooped on him some scary discoveries at strategic points inside the church.
Sources said that the suspects’ confidant, who knew about the activities of the prophet was sidelined and all his efforts to convince the prophet to allow him partake in the booty were rebuffed.
Vanguard was informed that the prophet called the bluff of the confidant when he threatened to expose him to the church members and security operatives. When he discovered that the prophet was unperturbed by his threat and having felt cheated he spilt the beans upon which the suspect was picked up, interrogated and detained. Vanguard gathered that the prophet’s close ally actually told security agents that the prophet allegedly buried human heads in strategic places inside the church.
This allegation prompted the invasion of the church by officials of the Security and Civil Defense Corps who later discovered that the prophet actually buried heads of a cow, tortoise, cowries, divination board and other fetish items on the altar and all the entrances of his church. These discoveries were made when he was interrogated and he reportedly confessed and took the security agents to the church. He was also forced to excavate all the fetish items buried in the church.
The decomposed heads of the cows full of maggots, pigeon heads tied with kola nuts, clay pots wrapped with white clothes and the dead tortoise were dug out by the prophet in the presence of security operatives and members of the public who got wind of the development in the church.
The church became deserted after the exposure of the prophet while his co-workers in the “vineyard” have equally disappeared into thin air. Vanguard gathered that the prophet also reportedly confessed that same fetish items were buried in.
Meanwhile, the national body of the Christ Apostolic Church has disowned alleged fetish clergyman. The Public Relations Officer of the NSCDC Kayode Balogun told Vanguard that some people from the national headquarters of the church came to the office to disown the suspect.
