On Tuesday, September 5, the traditional ruler of the community, Oba Omoniyi Olufunmilayo, ordered that his house and land should be sealed up.
A source disclosed to Punch that despite the king’s warning, Pastor Olufunmilayo has refused to dig out the fetish items from the land.
The source disclosed that: “The failure of the pastor to remove the fetish items on the land prompted the people of the community to take action against him. The Akapinsa of Ipinsaland, Oba Omoniyi Olufunmilayo, ordered that palm fronds should be placed in front ofhis house and the land, which traditionally means that the house has been sealed up until kabiyesi reverses the order.”
According to the source, the land and the house will remain sealed up until the pastor digs up and removes the items he buried in the land. The pastor is said to have left the community and his whereabouts is unknown.
