The woman and her daughter (left) & the church pastor’ poster (right)
A middle-aged woman simply identified as Amara dumped her baby in Sapele, Delta State over the weekend, Sunday to be precise after being told by a pastor that her baby was a snake and that she’d need to give him 52 thousand naira for him to conduct a deliverance on her.
According to Sapele Oghenek, A pidgin news outlet who shared the news, the baby was found crying by the road side and was taken to a police station by residents before the mother later came to identify her.
The mother reportedly said that the pastor instilled fear of the child in her with the spiritual talk and she didn’t have such huge amount to give him for prayers, that’s why she dumped the baby.
