The Ondo State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has arrested a pastor of the Christ Apostolic Church, identified as Moses Abiodun for burying fetish item, suspected to be human head inside his church located at Ikota in Ifedore Local Government Area of the state.
The 34-year-old suspect who hails from Esa Oke in Osun State was arrested by men of the state command of NSCDC following information that the cleric allegedly used human being for rituals in the church.
The State Commandant of the NSCDC, Mr. Fasiu Adeyinka told news men today, Thursday, that the suspect was the founder of the C.A.C ‘Dagunro’ and that he was suspected to have buried something suspected to be human head inside his church.
Having got the information, the NSCDC boss explained that his men went to Abiodun’s church where some fetish items were exhumed. Consequently the pastor was arrested.
”He (the pastor) was asked to dig some spots inside the church where various items such as cow head, pigeon head tied with kolanut, big clay pot wrapped with white clothes and other fetish items and charms were exhumed from the ground both at the entrance and inside the church.”
The commandant said that the command had begun investigation on the matter while the pastor is cooling off in the NSCDC’s custody. [myad]
