A pastor with the Christ Apostolic Church, Onigbogbo, Atan Ota, Ogun State, Pastor Olusegun Omoniyi, has said that his in-laws are subjecting him to torture over his late wife’s death.

Telling Punch his tale of woes, Pastor Omoniyi stated that his problem with his in-laws started when she fell sick after leaving him.

He said his in-laws mobilised some members of the Oodua People’s Congress, OPC, to abduct and torture him and later took him to her sick bed.

And when she later died and he went to commiserate with her in-laws alongside some of her church members, on the instruction of his in-laws, OPC members who previously abducted him, bundled him off to where the remains of his late wife was, insisting he must die with her.

“As I was leaving, they blocked the road and said they would burn the two vehicles we took there. The OPC members, who had earlier abducted me, came and dragged me to where the corpse was.

“After beating me again, they put me on the corpse and said I must die with her. They put me in a car with the corpse. I couldn’t recognise anybody until I saw some policemen who rescued me the second time,” Pastor Omoniyi told the paper.
