A ‘Vision’ from God lands Bishop in police pursuit after he led his followers to burn a human skull found at a beach in Landa Nyamasari, Homa Bay County.
The incident was reported at the Mbita Police Station by the area assistant chief, Francis Kasuku.
A police report states that the bishop had confessed during an Easter Prayer that he had seen a vision from God, indicating he would find a human skull on the beach.
The Church Bishop of The New Gift of God Roho led the congregation to the water where skull was discovered and the group proceeded to burn it before a local assistant chief alerted the police.
By the time the officers arrived at the scene, the pastor had already left for an unknown destination and efforts to trace him were futile.
“Upon interviewing locals, it was established that the New Gift of God Roho Church Luanda Nyamasari led by Pastor Daniel Okoth Okumu had on 08/04/2023invited Bishop Charles Ouma Odoro of Roho Foenyi for night vigil Easter prayers and the said Bishop confessed that God had revealed to him that there was a human head in Lake Victoria waters about 50M from the lake shores,” the police report read.
The skull has been taken to a mortuary awaiting forensic analysis.
