By Ola Adeola

A Christian zealot was struck dumb and motionless after invading a traditional shrine. Ogun State-based Pastor

Wale Fagbere was said to have boasted to his congregation that he would invade and flatten a shrine where traditionalists worship at Ketu – Ayetoro in Yewa North Local Government Area of the state.

That however didn’t happen; instead the pastor became dumb and motionless. He was later revived by the shrine’s priest after the intervention of the town’s monarch, the Alaye of Ayetoro, Oba Abdulaziz Adelakun.

Meanwhile, the police have said the man may be prosecuted if the priests lodge a complaint.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, Ogun Police Command spokesman said “The police’s next step would be determined by the traditionalists.

“If they complain to the Police about the destruction of their shrine, the victim would be charged for sacrilege and malicious damage.

“Everybody has right to worship anything he so desires.”
