If the following report from the thegazellenews.com is anything to go by, then something is amiss!
“It may sound incredible but it is true. The late founder and spiritual leader of the Christ Revival Victory Chapel International, Pastor Elijah Iretiola Ajanaku, might have belong to the Oro cult in his lifetime.
“Residents of Ikola Odunsi, where Ajanaku lived before he breathed his last on Saturday evening at Gbongan in Osun State, were surprised early Tuesday morning when Oro masquerades went to town in funeral rites for the departed ?Pastor?.
“The funeral rites which began at about 12.30am ended between 3 and 4am.
“The Oro worshippers chanted the name of Ajanaku throughout the night. The worshippers marched through the streets of Ikola Odunsi, Ikola Gbenaje, and landed at the deceased?s street, Folarin Williams Close.
“They were chanting, ?Ajanaku lo, o di gbere?, meaning ?Ajanaku is gone forever, adieu?. ”
