The assistant, identified as Lekan Ogundipe, according to multiple sources, drew the attention of the people to the presence of the partly burnt remains of the pastor inside the church.

It was gathered that the incident happened after Ogundipe assaulted a prophetess in the church following an undisclosed disagreement.

Displeased with the assault, Fedehan approached Ogundipe, and retrieved the church’s keys from him.

Ogundipe, who was suspected to have been angered by the retrieval of the keys, then attacked Fedehan while he was praying.

Assault on the prophetess occurred last week on Wednesday. The prophetess was in the church, and Lekan (Ogundipe) came around and met her. They had a disagreement. Lekan eventually assaulted the woman. He bit her, and that got the shepherd angry.

“Because of the way he acted, the pastor retrieved church keys from him. This past Sunday, there was a crisis in the church that almost disrupted the service. Lekan’s matter was also part of the issues that caused the crisis.

“But on Monday, when the pastor arrived at the church, he was praying at the feet of the altar when someone pounced on him and attempted to cover his face with clothes. That led to a tussle. Pastor struggled to push the attacker away, and in the process, he got to know it was Lekan who attacked him.

“While that was on, Lekan reportedly picked up a screwdriver and hit it against the pastor in the face, killing him on the spot. To cover his tracks, he dragged the body towards the generator, poured petrol on him, and set him ablaze. Unfortunately for him, he didn’t cover his tracks well,” a source, who spoke on the incident on condition of anonymity was quoted as saying.

After killing the man, he ran to the residence of the founder of the church and told him that fire was burning the pastor in the church. He also raised alarm in the neighbourhood that a fire had killed the pastor inside the church.

“But one of those that arrived at the scene early observed blood on Ogundipe’s dress. The man also observed a mark of violence around his neck region. The man and the founder then tricked the suspect and kept him in a vehicle, and when the police operatives arrived, they handed him over to them.”

Osun Police Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Yemisi Opalola confirmed the incident, saying that the command has commenced an investigation into the matter.
