A father in Nigeria, Samuel Sunday Otasi, has commited a serious crime by killing two of his sons following a pastors declaration that they were demons. Otasi hails from Agbobiri community, Biseni clan, in Yenagoa local government area in Nigeria’s Bayelsa State.
In a post sighted by Yen on social media, the father was said to have picked his three sons from a deliverance service in church on December 29, 2018, and conveyed them into a bush along Glory Land Drive, Igbogene, where he allegedly tied his sons to a tree and fed them with poison in the company of one his cousins.
A Yenagoa-based prophet, George Odoko, of the George Odoko Outreach Ministries, was the pastor who reportedly told Otasi that his sons, 14-year-old Success, Miracle and Godstime, 12 and 10 respectively, were bewitched by their mother who happened to be the suspect’s estranged wife.
He told him that the children were responsible for his illness and other woes. However, it is not clear if the pastor ordered the killing of the children after declaring them demons. While the suspect succeeded in killing two of the children, 14-year-old Success, the eldest son, managed to escape and was found unconscious by passers-by along the road.
