Ondo State Police Command has rescued 77 persons held in the basement of Whole Bible Believers Church located at Valentino Area of Ondo town, Ondo State, by the Pastor.

According to the Police, 26 children, eight teenagers, and 43 adult members who had abandoned their families, businesses, and school for several months, were rescued.

The Police say the victims were made to believe that the second coming of Jesus Christ would take place in April by Pastor Josiah Peter Asumosa, an Assistant Pastor of the church, also known as Ondo Church.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Funmilayo Odunlami, maintained that Police Operatives attached to Fagun Division went to the church following an intelligence report that some children were being harboured at the church.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that one Pastor Josiah Peter Asumosa, an assistant pastor in the church, was the one who told the members that rapture will take place in April, but later said it has been changed to September 2022 and told the young members to obey only their parents in the Lord,” he said.

The head pastor and his assistant are currently in Police custody and the Police has assured that an investigation is ongoing.
