A pastor in one of the churches in Ijebu-Ode was believed to have died as a result of a magical spell locally known as magun (Thunderbolt), after having sex with his female lover.

Reports have it that the deceased pastor went into a hotel which he had booked for a date with his lover and was later found dead in the room.

The incident was reported to the police attached to the Obanlende Divisional Office by the hotel owner.

The late pastor’s female partner is yet to be identified as she was said to have escaped from the hotel.

His body was taken to the mortuary after the scene was visited by the police and investigation into the pastor’s death has commenced.
