A lady died on Monday after drinking power water allegedly given to her by a pastor at Ajegunle area of Mpape, Abuja.
According to a resident of the area, the deceased and her friend had gone to the house of the pastor who is known to be able to cure many diseases with his power water that morning. When they got there, the pastor gave them the power water to drink. The deceased drank first and then gave the remaining to her friend who also drank.
“As soon as she drank, her eyes started bulging; she started vomiting blood and died instantly,” the source said.
Confirming the incident, the Mpape Divisional Police Officer, Chief Superintendent Abayomi Surajudeen said the case has been transferred to FCT criminal investigation department.
At the FCT criminal department, Police spokesperson, Deputy Superintendent Hyelhira Altine Daniel, said it is true that a lady died after drinking holy water popularly known as power water given to her by the pastor but added that it cannot be ascertained that the lady actually died from drinking the water because her friend also drank the same water and she’s still alive.
He said it would be unfair to accuse the pastor for the death as the lady left the pastor’s house hale and hearty, only to get home and start complaining of stomach ache and she died before she could be rushed to the hospital.
According to him, the ladies may have branched somewhere and eaten something else while returning from the pastor’s house.
He however said they are investigating the allegation and that the findings would be made public when concluded.
