A Prophet and a landlord have been arrested by the police following the death of a woman who went for a prayer session conducted at a private residence in Agbor, Delta State.
The incident, according to state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Charles Muka, occurred weekend, at the residence of the landlord, who organised the prayers for spiritual healing.
Muka said: “The deceased, identified as Nwanwundu Abiodu, on Saturday, came to the house of the landlord for prayer purposes, which had been on since August 31, conducted by the prophet.
“But at 11p.m., the prayer ended and the prophet left for his home, but suddenly, one Reverend Rose started shouting that Abiodu was dying. The prophet was called back and holy water was sprinkled on the woman, who was unconscious,” adding that the woman was rushed to Central Hospital, Agbor, where she was confirmed dead.
“As I speak, both the prophet and the landlord of the prayer have been arrested while investigation is in progress.”
