An attack on a pastor of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry, Wale Solomon, by a group of cultists, popularly known as badoo, has occurred in Lagos.
Newsbreakers reported that the attack on the minister took place at his residence on Obafemi Str., First Gate Ikorodu, where hoodlums raided his family at about 2am on Saturday.
It was gathered that the criminals inflicted injuries on the pastor’s head and other parts of his body with a mortar. While groaning in pain, his wife however, dashed out of the house to seek help from neighbours. On arrival to the house, she found her husband in a pool of blood, as the mortal was found beside him.
The attention of the police was drawn to the incident from the Sagamu Division.
A resident in the community commented on the attack: “They invaded First Gate on Saturday and entered the man’s house while he was asleep with his wife and kids. They came with a big mortar, which they used to smash the man’s head.
“The noise woke up the wife and on sensing danger, she rushed out and called for help. People came out and saw the man bleeding from different parts of his body. They rushed him to a private hospital in the area from where he was referred to General Hospital, Ikorodu.”
On the arrival of the policemen no arrest could be made since the criminals have already gone.
Another resident’s comments relay thus: “He was transferred from the General Hospital, Ikorodu, to LASUTH and from there, he was taken to a specialist hospital on the Lagos Island. I was told he still bleeds from the nose and ears. But the family is hopeful that God will take control.”
It was reported by a resident that the pastor has been attacked on regular basis owing to the uncompleted status of the building he lives in with his family. Hear the resident:
“The house is an uncompleted building; he lives there alone with his wife and children. The man has been trying to finish the building, but he appeared not to have the funds.
“I think the family was lucky that the woman ran out to call for help on time, because Badoo members always wipe out the household they attack. They left behind the mortar that they used to break the man’s head.”
