A pastor has been accused of allegedly causing the death of his pregnant wife after refusing to allow doctors remove their dead unborn child from her womb.
He was accused by a man who shared the story with OAP Freeze. The OAP then took to social media to share the story.
The man, who claimed to have witnessed the incident, said the pastor was told that his pregnant wife’s unborn died inside her womb and they had to remove the baby before her body rejects it.
He explained that the pastor who ministers at a Pentecostal church refused, saying that the child was not dead. He added that the pastor took his wife away from the hospital and started praying to God without telling anyone about the woman’s predicament.
