Pastor found transfixed in Ogun shrine says God asked him to keep quiet

shrine

The presiding pastor of the Ona-Iye branch of Christ Apostolic Church, Wale Fagbere, who was reportedly found motionless in a shrine at Ketu community, Ayetoro, in the Yewa North area of Ogun State, has denied being struck by idols while destroying the shrine.
Fagbere was said to have been stuck in the shrine on September 20, while trying to destroy it. When people in the area found him motionless, they raised alarm and according to reports, the priests of the shrine reluctantly revived him after the traditional ruler, Alaye of Ayetoro, Oba Abdulazeez Adelakun, pleaded with them.

The pastor, who is said to be the son of the late chief of the community, made the denial at a press conference convened by the State Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.
Fagbere further claimed that he was carrying out a “divine assignment” and was told by God to remain motionless after destroying the shrine, admitting that he was motionless after the assignment.

“God told me that I should go to the shrines to bring out those things for the liberation of Ayetoro. God told me to do three things in the shrines.

“That when I get there, I should evacuate, step aside and watch the film. He said I should not say anything when people come out to see me. So, I did as instructed by God on that day.

“I got there around 5am and after I took out those things, God told me to wait and stay and I did.
“God also told me to keep quiet. It was not their gods that held me.

“When I was taken to the palace, I told them that all my actions were directed by God and not human beings or the church of God.

“Although, they tried many charms on me, none was effective. I am healthy. I followed the instruction of God that I should be quiet and they also know the truth,” he told the gathering of CAN members in the State.

Fagbere claimed he deliberately waited in the shrines for the idol worshipers to see him.

The pastor was later charged with sacrilege and malicious damage, but the idol worshipers withdrew the case.

The Regional Coordinator of Yewa/Awori, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, Apostle Lola Dada, disclosed that the idol worshipers demanded that the pastor’s family contributes N300,000, while CAN was asked to pay N200,000, to appease the gods and repair the damage.

Dada, who spoke on behalf of the state’s CAN Chairman, Bishop Tunde Akin-Akinsanya, told newsmen at the occasion, “he [Pastor Fagbere] was handed over to the police and the police charged the case to court.

“The idol worshipers withdrew the case from the court; they said they cannot take the son of their late Oba to court and the case was withdrawn the same day.

“They said it was the church that encouraged him to do what he did. So, the idol worshipers transferred the aggression to the church.

“They barricaded the church with sacrifice and palm fronds, but the Christian youths removed them.

“They asked the family of the pastor to pay N300,000 while CAN should bring N200,000 for the sacrifice to appease their gods, but, no money was given to them and peace has returned to the town.”

Church leader
A Zimbabwean church leader, Nyasha Light Nyatsungo is enmeshed in a sex scandal and might also be facing legal action, after his ex-girlfriend flooded social media with his nude photo.
It was gathered that the Nyatsungo allegedly sent a nude picture of his Cape Town based ex–side chick, Shingi Mavenge, to his other girlfriend only identified as Beula who later broadcasted it on social media.
According to H-Metro, in an apparent fit of rage, Mavenge posted a WhatsApp chat she had with Nyatsungo’s wife identified as Nyasha Nhahumbi as well as a group chat with some of her former lover’s concubines.
According to Mavenge, she has gotten information that Nyatsungo has at least 33 girlfriends and has ditched his wife of eight years.
She adds that Nyatsungo bedded a girl who was their neighbour as well.
Mavenge said that the church leader’s wife revealed that they even consulted their local pastor in Mutare who failed in his attempts to mend Nyatsungo’s ways.
According to H-Metro, Nyatsungo, a married father of two, has denied ever circulating the picture, labelling Mavenge as a bitter woman whom he just flirted with on Facebook and nothing more.
“This Nyasha guy must be stopped in his tracks. He is going to pay for all the damage that he has done to me. He was the only one who had that leaked picture and I am shocked why he would forward it to some other girl,” fumed Mavhenge who is working on taking legal action.
 
“I started dating this guy in 2015 and never knew he was married. He lied.”  fumed Mavenge yesterday.
“That guy is full of lies and at some point, we opened a group chat with his wife and some of his girlfriends. He normally targets single mothers” added Mavenge.
H-Metro was furnished with six other cellphone numbers of his girlfriend that include Fadzai, Mutsa, Essy, Juliana, Barbra among others. Mutsa confirmed she once had a relationship with Nyatsungo have since terminated it since she discovered he was married.
Mavenge confirmed they met once in Johannesburg when she had to fly from Cape Town to meet her man sometime in April.
“That night he didn’t even have money. I had to pay the R800 for the accommodation as he had no money. He wanted to have sex with me but I flatly refused. He even wanted it without protection and I said No. he looked terrible with clothes in a plastic shopping bag. I want to write a letter to Pastor Rex who is the head of (the church) in Harare so that this guy be stopped with his tricks and lies,” added Mavenge.
When contacted over the phone in Mutare Nyatsungo confirmed he knew Mavenge but never had a relationship with her.
“I know her and we once flirted on Facebook. We never had a relationship as she is alleging. I don’t know why she is bitter. I haven’t seen the nude pictures she is talking about but I heard about it from Beula. We live in a democratic country. She can go ahead and sue me if she feels her rights have been infringed upon. All the allegations she is making are false and I don’t know her motive in trying to tarnish my image,” said Nyatsungo.
He said he was still with his wife whose phone rang without response yesterday afternoon. Despite his denials, H-metro was furnished with pictures of Nyatsungo and Mavenge, the time they met in April.
