A woman who attends a Celestial Church in Abule Egbe area of Lagos state is presently being treated for burns in a hospital.
A member of a Celestial Church of Christ in Abule Egbe part of Lagos, has been set on fire by the prophet of her church.
According to The Nations who spoke to the victim identified as Madam Bosede, the prophet had said he got a revelation from God that he was in their midst during a Sunday service and had been instructed to set the lady on fire with the promise that she will not burn.
Madam Bosede explained the incident to the journalist saying:
Our prophet said the spirit of God whispered to him that I would not burn if he sets me on fire. When I came out, they poured kerosene on my body and set me ablaze. But, unfortunately, I was burnt beyond recognition and before the other church members could get water, the deed had already been done.
The prophet also spoke with The Nation saying:
I heard the voice clearly, but I don’t know what happened after we set fire on her. God has been speaking to me since and it has been working, so I wonder why now.
Some members of the Celestial church has since stopped worshiping there as Madam Bosede is presently laying in critical condition in the hospital.
