One Hospitalized, Others Burnt As Traditional Worshippers Clash With White Garment Church
A woman is reportedly battling her life at the hospital following a chaotic event yesterday between members of a white garment church and traditional worshippers at a community in Ogun State.
Reports obtained by Naija News on Saturday revealed that there was an exchange of fists and exercise of spiritual powers on Friday in the Almaroof bus stop area of Agbado after members of a church in the area got into a heated argument with the traditional worshippers.
Sunday Vanguard gathered that the trouble started when the vigil of the white garment church coincided with routine rituals of the traditional worshippers.
In an attempt to see that one halts its worshipping for the other, a crisis broke out between the groups as none was ready to stop their services for the other, Naija News understands.
It was reported that the traditional worshippers through occultic means, set the small church ablaze and disrupted their service.
One of those that got burnt during the fisticuffs according to the report was a woman said to be a middle-aged nursing a baby.
The report said she is currently in the intensive care unit at a private hospital. The incident also rendered a 15-year-old girl, Abisoye Oyinkansola Adekoya, said to be living in the church homeless.
The teenager according to reports, had relocated to the church some years ago after losing her parents. It was revealed that after the death of her parents, Abisoye was left with no other option than to be squatting in the church since there was nowhere else for her to live.
Sympathisers in the area where the burnt small church was located are now appealing to spirited individuals to come to the rescue of Abisoye by relocating her to a secured place before she became a victim of untold agony and security threats.
Naija News understands that authorities are yet to respond to the incident as of the reporting time.
