Wahala: Woman Dies During 14 Days Fasting And Prayer Session To Save Her Marriage

A married woman has reportedly died while undergoing a 14-day fasting and prayer session in a bid to save her marriage which has been facing challenges.

According to reports by Punch, the middle-aged woman, who resides in Isheri Olofin area of Lagos state, had solicited spiritual assistance concerning her troubled marriage at the Christ Apostolic Church, Ori-Oke Gbogunmi, aka Ajanpelenbe Mountain, located at Pipeline Road, Isheri Olofin.

The late Owoyele was said to have been placed on a 14-day fasting and prayer, but unfortunately, on the10th day of the fasting, after morning prayers, she collapsed right inside the church building.

Confirming the incident, the resident pastor, Pastor Alfred Sunday, disclosed that after late Owoyele collapsed during the spiritual exercise, she was quickly rushed to the Igando General Hospital for treatment where she sadly gave up the ghost.

Pastor Alfred narrated;

“She came for prayers and nothing more. Before the day of the incident, we held a vigil and she was fine. Her fasting was supposed to be for 14 days, but the incident happened on the 10th day. God is my witness, there is nothing hidden here.

Her daughter, Oluwatise, was also with her in the church during the spiritual exercise and they always slept together. The incident happened around 7am. I was praying on the altar when one of the church members informed me that she had passed out.

When I moved closer to assess her, I observed that she could not stand up and when I called her name, she answered faintly. We had to rush her to the Igando General Hospital for treatment, but she died.” she said

Speaking further, the pastor said;

“When I reported the incident, the police took my statement and that of the victim’s daughter. But the General Overseer and I were detained for three days and the police also visited the church to conduct an investigation.

But the family insisted on not pressing any charge and after the police investigation, we were released. I met with the woman’s family immediately after the incident and they accepted what happened as fate.

During the spiritual exercise, she was fasting and praying, and usually broke her fasts with honey and water. But on the 10th day, she became very weak and we had to rush her to hospital to save her, but she died.

After the incident, we insist that anyone embarking on fasting and prayer in the church must break with pap instead of honey and water that we usually use. Anyone who refuses won’t be allowed to embark on the spiritual exercise in the church.”

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, said the circumstances surrounding Owoyele’s death were sudden and unnatural, adding that the investigation was still ongoing.

“On Saturday, April 24, 2021, around 11.50am, one Alfred Sunday reported that one Joy Owoyele, 30, came to his church, CAC Ori-Oke Gbogunmi, aka Ajanpelebe Mountain, in Isheri Olofin, for prayers on April 14, 2021.

Around 7am on the day of the incident, Owoyele fainted and was rushed to the Igando General Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Detectives led by Inspector Bridget Edosa visited the scene, inspected the corpse and deposited it in the Yaba General Hospital morgue for autopsy. The case is under investigation” Adejobi said.

The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), Reverend Father Ekije Camillus Anthony, Ebenezer Mbaka has stepped out to challenge the All Progressive Congress (APC), to report him to the Pope.

This is coming following a statement published online by Fr. Mbaka, where he asked the House of Representatives to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari if he refuses to resign as the country’s insecurity challenges increases daily.

In response to his statement, APC warned him not to take his luck too far because there is a lot to tell the pope about him. They further described his statement as ungodly.

Reacting to APC’s threats, Reverend Mbaka on Sunday, May 2, while delivering homily in his Ministry at Emene Enugu, challenged The All Progressive Congress to report him to the pope as he said that Pope Francis will be happy and will give him accolades if he hears that he is criticising a bad government in his country.

In his words;

“The pope will clap for me if he hears that I am challenging a bad government in Nigeria. So, the APC can go ahead and report me to him.

“The Pope may even give me a position I may not want to handle,” Rev. Mbaka said.
