Pastor Who Attempted to Destroy Idols in Shrine TO Be Charged To Court

Yesterday we reported here about a pastor who got stuck in a shrine in Ogun state while trying to destroy idols in a shrine.

The police in ogun state say that pastor Wale Fagbere would be charged to court for malicious damage stating that everyone has a right to worship whatever deity he or she chooses.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Mr Abimbola Oyeyemi, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abeokuta on Monday that the cleric would be charged for malicious damage and conduct likely to cause a breach of public peace.

 “What he did was wrong and so he must be charged to court. If it was the other way round too, they will also be charged to court. “Everyone has a right to worship whatever deity one chooses without fear or favour, “he said. Oyeyemi, however, said he could not tell in which court the accused would be arraigned as at press time.

 NAN reports that Fagbere on Saturday attempted to pull down a traditional shrine in Ketu, Yewa North Local Government Area of the state.
