A preacher has been pronounced dead the moment he was preaching against ritual killings in church.
A video showing the tragic moment a Deacon at Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), Onikoko, Abeokuta, Ogun State, suddenly slumped and died while preaching against ritual killing has surfaced online.
TopNaija reports that the sad incident happened on Sunday, April 3, when the deacon, identified as Ogunnusi, was preaching to the congregation during a service.
The deceased, Ogunnusi is Sadi to be the Baale of Onikoko, a community around Panseke area of Ogun state.
In the video, Ogunnusi was preaching in Yoruba, which could be translated as saying, “The money you make through unlawful means, killing people, sucking human blood; when death comes, it will belong to another person.”
The interpreter was still trying to interpret his words in English when Ogunnusi suddenly collapsed.
According to Daily Trust, he was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, where he was pronounced dead.
An eyewitness, who pleaded on anonymity spoke with the publication said,
“The man was not the pastor of that church, he was just an elder. He was the Baale of Onikoko. But he was the one that delivered the sermon on Sunday.
“He was talking about death and people who make money by killing other people. All of a sudden, he collapsed. He was rushed to the FMC, but he died. We don’t know what happened. I was very scared. Everything was disrupted. We just shared the grace and went home.”
As of the time of filing this report, it is unclear if the deacon had an underlying health condition before his sudden death but his body has been deposited in a morgue
