Two suspected yahoo boys have been arrested in Akure, the ondo state capital while allegedly invoking the spirit of late Mrs Iyabo Omokri, the General overseer, Greater Works ministry (House of Prayers and Praises for All Nations (HOPPFAN) who had died for over ten years ago.
It was reliably gathered that the incident occurred around 1a.m in the midnight around the church premises at Sijuwade area, Akure, where the deceased was buried as fear gripped residents of Sijuwade area who could not sleep again after the incident.
It was also gathered that the two Yahoo boys were caught when they were saying incantations to raise the dead cleric with the intention of sleeping with her.
A source close to the church said that luck however ran against the suspects as the security guard in the church arrested them.
According to him, one of the Yahoo boys ran away but the other one was not allowed to escape and was later handed over to the police at nearby Ala police station.
Another church member who preferred anonymity confirmed that the incident occurred but the church doesn’t want the matter blown out by the press.
He said: “Yes, it happened actually but it is a case that had been well-handled, we don’t want to it publicised. We have involved the leadership of the church and they said they didn’t want to go further on it.”
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in Ondo, Mrs Funmi Odunlami said she had called the DPO in Ala police station and he said nothing of such occurred in the midnight.
