Photos: Wonders In Lagos As Cele Pastor Sets Woman On Fire, Says God Told Me She Won’t Burn

There was confusion on Sunday at Celestial Church of Christ
(CCC) on Unity Street in Abule-Egba, Lagos, when a prophet set a member ablaze
during the church service. The victim, simply identified as Madam Bosede, is now
lying critically ill in hospital.
It was gathered that the prophet in his sermon claimed he
got a revelation that there was God in their midst, adding that if the woman
was set ablaze she would not suffer burns.
Madam Bosede, who joined the church a month ago told TheNation yesterday: “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

The cleric however told The Nation that he clearly heard a
voice instructing him to set a member on fire to prove and confirm that God was
in their midst. “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,” he said.
Some members, however, left the church, doubting their
prophet’s credibility, adding: “We cannot worship here again, who knows who the
spirit will ask him to burn next.”
A resident, Irene Ohekina said: “I don’t pity her; she was
the one who allowed herself to be deceived by the prophet. Why did the prophet
not try the fire on himself or any of his family members?”
Another resident, Nkechi said for the prophet to have given
such instruction, it must have come from God, adding “I believe it’s the sins
of the victim that made her burn, the prophet of God could not have lied.”

Daniel Ayodele, who also witnessed the incident said: “This
whole thing is funny, when the pastor said the woman should be set on fire, why
did she not refuse or was she scared to disobey the prophet. Now, she is
writhing in pains on the hospital bed and I am sure the prophet is elsewhere
enjoying himself.”
