She later told her mother that she wanted to go to the church. The mother asked her to rest since she had malaria, but she insisted on going to the church.

Nobody knew how she got into the well. It was a man who wanted to fetch water in the well this morning (Sunday) that saw her lifeless body and raised the alarm.”

The body of the deceased was evacuated from the well by some youths in the community. The pastor of the church was arrested for interrogation by the police.

Mr. Femi Joseph, the Police Public Relations Officer Ondo State, confirmed the incident, he said: “It happened early this morning (Sunday). The deceased was sick and her mother took her to the church for prayers. Later, she (the deceased) went home but returned to the church on Saturday evening.
