3 Worshippers Dies In Church Deliverance Service In Delta State


The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Andrew Aniamaka, on Tuesday, confirmed that three died during a deliverance service at a Church located in the outskirt of Warri, Delta State.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, confirmed the incident on Tuesday.

However, a male source had earlier told journalists that the deceased were a 10-year-old boy, identified as Emmanuel Odili, Mrs Beatrice Nwachukwu and Mr Antonio Abba.

“The information actually is that one worshipper drowned and two died in the church; that is the information available to me at the moment,” Aniamaka said.

In addition, the source said the church authority deposited the remains of the boy at a morgue before reporting the incident at Eburumede Police Station.
“The authority of the church alleged that the deceased had mental disorder, which was denied by the parents.
“While the matter was being investigated, some members of the church, on Saturday, came to report that Mrs Nwachukwu and Mr Abba had died during deliverance in the church.
“They (church authority) said that Nwachukwu slumped during the prayer session; they also claimed she had high blood pressure, but the husband denied it.”
