Woman dies after drinking pastor’s ‘power water’

A lady has been confirmed dead Monday morning after drinking power water allegedly given to her by a pastor at Ajegunle area of  Mpape.

A resident of the area told our reporter that the deceased went with her friend to get the power water in the pastor’s house in the morning and that the pastor gave the water to the two friends.

“The surviving lady told us that the pastor is known to be able to cure many diseases with his power water, so that morning the deceased went to the other girl’s house so that they can go to  the pastor’s house to get the power water,” the resident said.

According to the source, the other girl narrated that when they got to the pastor’s house, they knocked and the pastor came out with the power water, she drank as the pastor commanded, then she handed the remaining water to the deceased, who also drank.
“As soon as she drank, her eyes started bulging; she started vomiting blood and died instantly,’’ the source said.

When contacted, the Mpape Divisional Police Officer, Chief Superintendent Abayomi Surajudeen, confirmed the death and called it unfortunate but said that the case has been transferred to FCT criminal investigation department.

At the command, FCT Police spokesperson, Deputy Superintendent Hyelhira Altine Daniel, said it is true that a lady died after drinking holy water popularly known as power water given to her by the pastor but said nobody can prove that the lady died as a result of the power water because nothing happened to the other lady, who drank the same water with her.

She said, “We cannot be able to prove that the lady died as a result of the power water. Two ladies went for the water, both of them drank from the same bottle and the one who drank last died, does that mean that the water killed her? As a matter of fact, she left the pastor’s house hale and hearty after drinking the power water, and when she got home, she started complaining of stomach ache, before she could be rushed to the hospital, she died.”

The FCT police spokesperson said that maybe they branched somewhere and ate something while returning from the pastor’s house and that it would be unfair to accuse the pastor of causing her death.
The Deputy Superintendent however said they are investigating the allegation and that the findings would be made public when concluded.
