A viral video shows Ogunnusi, alongside an interpreter, warning against the rising cases money-making rituals as there have recently been worrying cases of ritual killing in Ogun State and other parts of the country, with not less than three cases of killing for money ritual recorded in different parts of the state last month.

Before he slumped, Ogunnusi said, “The money you make through unlawful means, killing people, sucking human blood; when death comes, it will belong to another person.”

However, when the interpreter was still trying to present the words in English language, Ogunnusi slumped. He was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, where he was pronounced dead.

A member of the church clarified that Ogunnusi “was not the pastor of the church; he was just an elder. He was the Baale of Onikoko. But he was the one that delivered the sermon on Sunday.

“He was talking about death and people who make money by killing other people, and all of a sudden he collapsed. He was rushed to the FMC, but he died. We don’t know what happened. I was very scared. Everything was disrupted. We just shared the grace and went home.”
