Man Kills Pastor Inside Osun Church

Lekan Ogundipe, one of the pastor’s aides, is alleged to have killed Moris Fadehan, the pastor of Celestial Church of Christ, Grace of Comfort Parish, Omitoto, in Osun State, inside the church.

There were reports that the suspect alerted other people on Monday to the pastor’s partially burned remains lying within the church.

After committing the deed, it was reported that Ogundipe ran to the church’s founder—whose identity was not immediately known—and informed him that the pastor was being burned by fire.

It was also discovered that a resident of Omitoto, the town where the church is situated, was informed by Ogundipe that the pastor was being burned by fire. When the resident arrived at the scene, he noticed blood on the suspect’s clothing and brought this to the attention of the church’s founder.

The same man reportedly alerted the police, who sent officers to the scene before they took the culprit into custody.

It was not immediately clear the issues between Ogundipe and Fadehan that could have led to the murder of the deceased.

But a source close to the deceased, who does not want to be mentioned for security sake said Fadehan had retrieved keys to the church from the suspect, after he assaulted a prophetess, following undisclosed differences last week Wednesday.

He said, “Assault on the prophetess occurred last week Wednesday. The prophetess was in the church and Lekan (Ogundipe) came around and met her. They had a disagreement. Lekan eventually assaulted the woman. He bit her and that got the shepherd angry.

“Because of the way he acted, the pastor retrieved church keys from him. This last Sunday, there was a crisis in the church that almost disrupted the service. Lekan’s matter was also part of the issues that caused the crisis.

“But on Monday, when the pastor arrived at the church, he was praying at the feet of the altar when someone pounced on him and attempted to cover his face with clothes. That led to a tussle. Pastor struggled to push the attacker away and in the process, he got to know it was Lekan that attacked him.

“While that was on, Lekan reportedly picked up a screwdriver and hit it against the pastor on the face, killing him on the spot. To cover his track, he dragged the body towards the generator, poured petrol on him and set him ablaze. Unfortunately for him, he didn’t cover his track well.

“After killing the man, he ran to the residence of the founder of the church and told him that fire was burning the pastor in the church. He also raised the alarm in the neighborhood that fire had killed the pastor inside the church.

“But one of the those that arrived at the scene early observed blood on Ogundipe’s dress. The man also observed a mark of violence around his neck region. The man and the founder then tricked the suspect and kept him in a vehicle and when the police operatives arrived, they handed him over to them.” [CONTINUE READING HERE]
