A scene from a horror movie played itself when a pastor of a Living Faith Church, a k a Winners Chapel, Adeniyi Johnson, was caught by a mob with pieces of fried meat suspected to be human parts.
This Day reports that the flesh eating pastor who was caught in the act at Ijomu area of Akure metropolis of Ondo state was also alleged to be in possession of some fetish items that were kept inside his bag.
An eye witness said the middle-aged pastor shocked the people in the area when he brought out pieces of fried meat from his bag, spread them in a tray and started calling people to come and join him to eat.
But people around who were suspicious of the curious invitation by the pastor began to shout “eran eyan ni, eran eyan ni” meaning “It is human mean meat, it is human meat".
Some among the crown suggested that the man should be lynched due to his suspicious behaviour and the fetish item found on him.
However, Johnson pleaded that he had just been transferred to Ipogun in Ifedore Local Government Area branch of the church from Iju/ Ita-ogbolu in Akure North local government.
When people gathering at the scene were becoming uncontrollable, the man was moved to the palace of Deji of Akure, where he was quizzed by chiefs at the palace.
Upon interrogation, he said he was 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 a revelation from God.
He was thereafter taken away to the area command headquarters of the Ondo state police command for further interrogation.
