Men of the Ondo State Police Command have invaded the Promised Land Prophetic Ministry (formerly Christ Apostolic Church, Promised Land) located in the Shasha area of Akure and dug the altar.
It was gathered that the action of the policemen was connected with an ongoing investigation into an allegation that the founder and pastor of the church, Gbenga Akinbiyi, was engaging in fetish practices.
The policemen were said to have been sent from the office of the Inspector-General of Police, Force Headquarters, Abuja.
Some former members wrote a petition that the founder buried fetish objects at the altar in order to draw more crowd to the church.
Things fell apart between the embattled pastor and some foundation members after he broke away from CAC and changed the name of the church some years ago.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Femi Joseph, said the policemen went to the church as part of the ongoing investigation into some allegations against the pastor.
