MediaTek posted a topic in Places and RegionsPastor Bushiri’s church, The Enlightened Christian Gathering, has been accused of removing corpses of stampede victims at one of its branches across South Africa, before police arrival. The church said its action was negligent and it has suspended one of its own following the evacuation of the three bodies. The bodies were taken to a mortuary without the presence of police on Friday. A case of defeating the ends of justice was opened by police against Bushiri’s Enlightened Christian Gathering church. Lawyer and church spokesman Terrance Baloyi said: Three congregants died on Friday night and nine were injured during a stampede at the church’s gathering at the Tshwane Events Centre in Pretoria West. Baloyi said Bushiri went to the scene on Saturday after he was informed about the tragedy. He said the church had its own emergency services and qualified nurses and doctors. According to police, the congregation members started pushing each other to avoid a storm. Police spokeswoman Captain Augustinah Selepe said a case of defeating the ends of justice was opened.

Chief Magistrate Kikelomo Ayeye remanded Nielsen, 53, in Ikoyi Prison, following an application by the police. Nielsen was docked on a two-count charge of unlawful killing. Nielsen’s plea was not taken. He was represented by Frank Udoka Amah. Prosecuting counsel, Effiong Asuquo, tendered a three-page application, containing 15 grounds for Nielsen’s remand in prison. He said: “There is overwhelming forensic evidence linking the defendant to the assault and murder of his wife and daughter. The investigation has also shown that the defendant was habitually violent to his late wife, Zainab.” According to Asuquo, a fight broke out between the couple in their flat at about 3:00 a.m. on that fateful day. Nielsen was allegedly seen fighting and hitting the deceased’s head on a wall by her two relations, Mimi, 11, and Faith, 13 who lived with them. She died from injuries sustained from the assault. The prosecutor alleged that Nielsen then poisoned Petra before dragging her body into the kitchen. Asuquo said: “He took the lifeless little girl and put her under the mother’s body and then put on gas stove burners in the kitchen so that it will be believed that the wife and daughter were suffocated to death by the cooking gas. It is in the national interest that the suspect remain in prison pending legal advice and his arraignment and trial.” Chief Magistrate Ayeye upheld his prayer. She remanded Nielsen in prison and adjourned the case till May 8 for the DPP’s advice.
