The General Overseer of a fast growing church in Lagos, where Lagos big girls rush to, has been arrested by the Police for alleged ritual murder. The pastor simply identified as Fireman has been detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti, Yaba, Lagos following confessional statement of a young man, Ikechukwu, who was caught strangulating a 12-year-old girl identified as Bose.
In his confession, Ikechukwu said: “I started attending the church in Surulere since 2011 when I heard how the man of God was performing miracles and I believed in the pastor. After Christmas celebration, I was ashamed that I had nothing for the New Year celebration, especially clothes.The spirit moved me to approach my pastor for help and when I met with him, he promised to give me N100,000 if I could get the faeces of a strangled virgin.”
Ikechukwu had told the Police that the Pastor had contracted him to kill a female virgin and bring her faeces for a NI00.000 fee. Ikechukwu, who was paraded at SCID, Panti by the state Police spokeswoman, Ngozi Braide, narrated how he strangulated the girl.
“I agreed to get the faeces of a virgin. I remembered a food vendor’s daughter, who I suspected was a virgin and I went to the woman’s shed at Badagry. When I met Bose, I bought rice and plantain from her. She served me and after eating, I lured her to an uncompleted building on the pretence that I wanted to show her something.
