How do you prove to a blind man you can see? This is a tragedy that befalls most pastor today as they face the judgement of the country’s law. In Nigeria today, a pastor has been arrested for maltreatment of people in the name of deliverance.
According to The Nation news
A 70-YEAR-OLD ‘pastor’, Emmanuel Adeyemi, has been arrested by the police in Lagos for allegedly chaining his son and 27 others.
Adeyemi was arrested alongside his first wife, at his Oyinbo Unity Estate, Olamidun Close, Yakoyo, Oke-Ira, Ojodu residence, after he was accused of putting his son, Toba Adedoyin Adeyemi, 17, in chains and starving him of food.
Thirteen children and 15 adults were rescued from the premises with an inscription, “Mimo Mimo Mimo Safulaijah”, situated in a valley at the estate.
But when The Nation visited the church, some of the pastor’s client was seen weeping over his arrest.
Two men and an aged woman who sat on a bench claimed that the suspect has been healing people of various ailments including mental disorder, diabetes, stroke and spiritual attacks.
