Police in Delta State, yesterday, confirmed the death of three persons in mysterious circumstances, weekend, at Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministries, Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area, Delta State.
“three people actually died. We heard one was through drowning. The other two also died in the church. Investigations are ongoing.”
The dead, Vanguard learned, include 10-year-old Emmanuel Odili, who was found dead, Saturday, in a canal dug around the church after being declared missing on Friday, when he reportedly visited the popular miracle church to see his mother, who was there for deliverance prayers.
“While the matter of the boy was still being sorted out, people ran down to the station to report the sudden collapse and death of Mrs Nwachukwu. Later, some others came again to report the death of another man from Kano, Antonio. “The two died at intervals, Saturday, during the prayer session. They were trying to link Mrs Nwachukwu’s death to high blood pressure, but her husband claimed nothing was wrong with his wife before they got to the Church.”
