A middle-aged man, Mr Michael Agbede, has raised an alarm over the threat to his life for converting to Christianity from traditional religion
He similarly raised an alarm over the kidnap of his 9-year old son, Emmanuel.
According to Agbede, who hails from Igbara-Oke, the headquarters of Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State, the incident to the threat of his life began a very long time, when his family members were against his decision to convert to Christianity from their traditional religion of worshipping masquerade
In a chart with newsmen he said his decision brought about the discord between him and his family members, a situation which he disclosed, led to several attempts to kidnap him.
Agbede recalled that on several occasions, some of his family members had visited his church in Ibadan, with the aim of kidnapping him, but their failure to know his whereabouts resulted in destroying the church property worth several thousands of naira.
He narrated further: “Till now as I am talking to you, I don’t know the whereabouts of my 9-year old son, Emmanuel. I don’t know if he was kidnapped by herdsmen or ritualists, because he was kidnapped at his school in Ibadan.”
