While seeking help, it is very important to know where we go to get such help. Sometimes people end up destroying themselves while seeking what will make them better. 

This is the story of Sukura Owodunni, a 21-year-old lady who resides in Ogun State. Her story, however, is a tragic one.


The 21-year-old was set ablaze during a deliverance session at the Cherubim and Seraphim Maberu Parish in Offin in the Sagamu area of Ogun State.


Owodunni had gone in search of spiritual help, but her problems, however, remain unknown till this point.

Sadly, the problem remains unsolved, and she is even in more problem now than she had approached the Ogun pastor.


As a matter of fact, she is very lucky that she still breathes, because the search for help, almost took her life.

The Invitation

It all began on August 17, 2023, that was the day pastor, Taiwo Odebiyi, invited Owodunni to his church for a special prayer.

On arrival, she was instructed to go and buy Amazing Grace perfume, local eggs and a candle for the deliverance.

She bought the needed items, and the pastor began the deliverance.


He poured the perfume on the lady’s body while praying for her and lit the candle.

The deliverance came to a sudden end when Owodunni’s clothes went up in flames, causing severe burns to her chest, shoulder and legs.


The Arrest

An eyewitness said the suspect was immediately arrested after the Divisional Police Officer in Adigbe, CSP Abdulfattah Ogunsanya, and his men came to the scene of the deliverance.
