The source said, “For some time now, Olalekan has been acting strangely. For more than a week, he could not sleep. He just woke up yesterday to say he was going. They asked him, ‘going where?’.

“They tried to hold him but he overpowered the people around because he was very powerful, maybe it was a spiritual attack. We could not ascertain that. He just woke up and said he was going and that they should pray for him.
