The Chief Overseer of the Sabbath Church in Dape Village, Life Camp, Abuja, Pastor Isaiah Okoye, has landed himself in trouble following the death of a teenager he was trying to deliver of alleged witchcraft.
Pastor Okoye was said to have tied two ‘witch’ teenagers for three days during a special ‘deliverance’ without food and water but rather than accomplish his purpose, the action resulted in the death of one of the alleged witches.
The police has filed a criminal suit against Pastor Okoye for alleged culpable homicide.
The suit was filed before Justice Jude Okeke, a vacation judge in the Abuja High Court, listed one Ngozi Ogbonna, a member of the church, as an accomplice to the crime.
The two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide that contravene the Penal Code, was filed by Inspector Tony Akerele. It alleges that Pastor Okoye used ropes to tie the two teenage boys for three days without food, and should thus be convicted for the death of one of the alleged witches.
