Evil "pastors"

I just read a very sad story of how an 11 years old girl was raped to death by a so-called pastor. The story has it that a prophetess informed one Mrs. Bassey that her only daughter, Covenant was a witch and therefore needed some form of "spiritual cleansing" to chase the spirit of witchcraft away.

Mrs. Bassey was so afraid that she agreed to take her daughter for the spiritual cleansing. However on the appointed day, madam prophetess was out of town. Now this made Mrs. Bassey panic. She then confided in a friend of hers. This friend now recommended a "man of God god" to Mrs. Bassey. This man of god, one Henry Evbotokhai, is the pastor in charge of a church known as Miracle Deliverance Ministry, some where in Lagos. Mrs. Bassey took her preciuos little daughter to Mr. man of god for deliverance. The man of god demanded for N2,000 to enable him do the deliverance.

Anyway, Mrs. Bassey left her daughter with the pastor for 3 whole days. On the 3rd day, when Mrs. Bassey went to pick her daughter, believing that she would have been witch-free by then, she was shocked to find the place under lock and key! She finally reported to the Police, narrating her ordeal. When the door was forced open, the lifeless body of Covenant was found in a pool of her own blood. On further investigations, it was revealed that Covenant was raped to death by the so-called pastor!

The innocent child died for nothing!

My questions:
1. Is that pastor real?
2. Is Mrs. Bassey a church goer? (Note I did not use the word "christian")
3. IF she is a church goer, why did she not meet her own Pastor/Reverend Father/General Over Seer etc for counselling?
4. Is such a crime permissible?
5. Why are humans so mean even to their fellow humans?

I just wonder.

this story is crushing! I feel heart broken. The Bible says my people perish becos of lack of knowledge. Carelessnes of a mother. No.1, no true child of God demands money for the work of God. So no, the pastor isn't real. Plus how do they know the child na witch- en dey fly for nite or did she confess to such?

The crime definitely isnt permissible. As for why these sort of things happening? Bible again says- The heart of man is decitful and desperately wicked. The devil has come to steal, kill, and destroy. God help us o and may our lack of knowledge not lead us into stupidity. Amen!

TIGERESS: No mind the woman! She was truly a careless mother. She should have ran for cover when the pastor asked for money.

Thanks for visiting!

this is Sad. But it must be said that the mother was very careless. If ur child needs to be cleansed, must u leave her alone, and with a man for that matter.

U bet the man will not be found, and nothing will be done abt it...SAD...a life lost for no damn reason.

omg!!!!!!!!!!!
This is so sad and awful!! That poor child....i really am beyond words on this one

Femi B said...

all these witches stories...
child might just have some menal disease they equate to witch
child might have dyslexia, adhd,add they equate to witchcraft
Lack of education and ignorance...then the evil nature of people. I hope the pastor is convicted to the fullest. imagine the others he must have raped

Dee! said...

JUST TOLUWA: It is indeed very sad. The mother was ignorant and careless. Thanks for stopping by.

JARRAI: I think I know how you feel! Thanks for visiting.

FEMI B: For all we know, the child might be clean! The prophetess was only looking for a way to extort money from the mother. My sister, thanks for visiting.

I guess you know the answers to your question already. There is something in law called caveat emptor – means buyer beware, the onus is on the individual to take an extra caution, the fact that someone is called a pastor doesn’t mean he is to be tusted
