A blind cleric and General Overseer of the Hour of Mercy Prayer Ministry Worldwide (Orioke Alaseyori), Prophet Muyideen Moses Kasali, has urged the police to probe cases of alleged child labour and slavery levelled against a top chief in Ilora community of Oyo State.
Kasali, who prevented some youths from burning down some homes and churches during a crusade he organised, told reporters that the police should also tighten security in the town to stop those he called power brokers from using youths to breach the peace in a dispute between the Akibio of Ilora in Afijio Local Government Area and a businessman, Mr Afolabi Steven (aka Afos).
Some angry youths, comprising “Area Boys”, reportedly planned to torch some churches, homes and business premises belonging to Afos over a dispute between him and the monarch.
It was learnt that Afos had been having a running battle with the monarch.
Kasali said: “I had a powerful crusade at Ilora town, as the Lord led me. God displayed his awesome powers during the crusade, which was a vigil and lasted for hours till the morning. Many people received miraculous healings, deliverance and salvation.
“I have organised so many crusades, as directed by God, where I anointed even some kings in Ilora neighbouring towns just for peace, progress of the area. So, I am concerned that some people were plotting to truncate these works.”
