A Pastor from Ogun State, Taiwo Odebiyi has reportedly set a 21-year-old Sukura Owodunni on fire while conducting a deliverance session on her.

New Telegraph gathered that the incident happened on August 17, 2023, in the Cherubim and Seraphim Maberu Parish in Offin, Sagamu region of Ogun State.

According to the reports, the victim had been invited by the pastor to come to the church for a special prayer, and she was given instructions to purchase Amazing Grace perfume, local eggs, and a candle for the deliverance.

But during the cause of the deliverance, the pastor lighted the candle and prayed for the woman before applying the perfume on her body.

Surprisingly, Owodunni’s clothes were up in flames, causing severe burns to her chest, shoulder and legs.


According to a witness, the suspect was taken into custody right away when CSP Abdulfattah Ogunsanya, the divisional police officer for Adigbe, and his colleagues stormed the scene.
