The victim, simply identified as Madam Bosede, is lying critically ill in hospital.
It was gathered that the prophet in his sermon claimed he got a revelation that there was God in their midst, adding that if the woman was set ablaze she would not suffer burns.
Madam Bosede, who joined the church a month ago told The Nation yesterday: “Our prophet said the spirit of God whispered to him that I would not burn if he sets me on fire. When I came out, they poured kerosene on my body and set me ablaze. But, unfortunately, I was burnt beyond recognition and before the other church members could get water, the deed had already been done.”

It is sad that it took a tragedy as such for some to wake up, "“We cannot worship here again, who knows who the spirit will ask him to burn next.”
