Things have gone south for a Celestial Church pastor in Lagos who roasted his member alive in a bid to perform signs and wonders.

According to reports from the Lagos state police, an unidentified pastor in the Celestial Church of Christ was arrested for setting a new member of his church, Mrs. Bosede on fire in order to show everyone the power of God.

The pastor during a morning service told his congregation that God instructed him to set the woman on fire, assuring that that the woman will not suffer any injuries.

Bosede who just joined the church about a month ago was then doused with fuel and set on fire.

When she began to scream in pain, members of the church brought water and quenched the fire but the deed had been done. She suffered serious burns and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she is said to be in critical condition.

The pastor was immediately arrested and surprisingly the members of his congregation kicked against his arrest saying the woman’s sins caused the fire to burn her.

The pastor in his statement to the police said he doesn’t understand why the woman suffered burns as God told him she will not suffer.

He has been charged with attempted murder.
