A self acclaimed Pastor, Mr. Adeniyi Johnson has escaped death by a whisker after he was caught hawking fried meat and fetish items in his bag. The incident happened at Ijomu area in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
According to reports, Johnson, who claimed to be a pastor at a popular pentecostal Church in the state, was attacked by an angry mob who accused him of belonging to the devil.
It was gathered that the pastor was begging the people to come and eat with him. The action was said to have aroused curiosity on the part of the people who immediately apprehended him.
The angry mob tried to lynch the man to death but was stopped by policemen. Johnson told the crowd that he has just been transferred to Ipogun branch of the church from Iju/Ita-Ogbolu and he was directed to do this by the Holy Spirit. He was taken to the palace of the chief in the area.
At the palace, Johnson recounted his mission in Yoruba while being quizzed by palace chiefs. He explained that he divinely instructed to go and share the meat to save his dying son.
He appealed to the people to allow him to go and continue what he called his end time mission based on revelation from God.
Thereafter, he was whisked away to the Area Command headquarters of the police for further interrogation.
At the state headquarters of the winners chapel in Akure, a senior pastor who spoke off record said Johnson was sacked as a Pastor of one of its local branches about a month ago to allow his family treat him after showing signs of insanity.
It was gathered that some pastors from the church have come to attest that pastor Johnson has mental issues.
The officer said the police is now awaiting his family to come with his medical record on his mental state before he can be possibly released to them.
