It was a sad story for members of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Oluwatoyi District in Ado-Ekiti on Monday as their monthly global crusade ended in a fiasco.
According to the wife of the pastor in charge of the church, Dr. Ajibade, the unrest started when suspected thugs led by a certain Alfa Kudus invaded the church premises in large numbers to disrupt the solemn assembly.
Ajibade recounted that “During our worldwide crusade on January 31, 2022 at Deeper Life Bible Church in Oluwatoyi Ado-Ekiti District, a young man, named Alfa Kudus, came with some men to meet one of our members (brother Imole) during the prayer session and started shouting that his wife had been beaten by Bro. Imole.
“They started beating Bro. Imole and in about seconds seven people joined them, including a girl, before we intervened.
“The pastor of the church told them to solve the problems outside but they did not listen to him. One of them used a truncheon to beat Bro. Imol. They also destroyed 12 seats.
“It took the intervention of the landlord to restore normality before the matter was reported to the police.”
At the time of filing this report, the matter is under investigation at the Ado-Ekiti Police Zone Command.
