The members of a popular church in Oshodi area of Lagos were shocked to realise that their member identified as Daniel had married his younger blood sister, Grace, and had two kids as the fruits of their marriage.
The church is located at Mafoluku Road in Oshodi area of Lagos and was founded by a prophet who hails from Delta State.
The man and blood his sister resided in the prophet’s house before she relocated to Ejigbo with their children.
It was gathered that Daniel had come to Lagos from their home state, Akwa Ibom, started attending the church and was given an accommodation by the prophet. After a while, he told the prophet that he wanted to travel to his village to get married and the church supported him.
He went, brought his blood sister, introduced her as his wife and received the blessing of the church.
Thereafter, they moved to the house allocated to them by the prophet in Ogun State due to accommodation problem; there the wife became pregnant and had the kids.
However, recently Daniel was found dead and his private part removed with other parts of his body missing. The death was reported to the police who had commenced investigation into the matter and his wife was brought to Ejigbo stay with the pastor’s family while the church was making arrangements to take the corpse to bury in their home town.
It was at the pastor’s house that the wife confessed that Daniel was actually her blood brother but they came to Lagos, started living as husband and wife and had children. She was also said to be pregnant for Daniel before he was murdered. The church members were shocked over the revelation and were said to be in dilemma about what to do.
When P.M Express correspondent went to the church to speak with the prophet, he was said not to be around. When the reporter also asked to know about Daniel and his wife, they declined to speak further on the matter.
However, a member of the church referred the reporter to the wife who had relocated to Ejigbo but on getting there she was said to have gone out and may travel to her village with the children soon to face whatever the consequence might be.
