A 55-year-old pastor has been caught and paraded by the Oyo State Police Command on Friday for being in possession of a human head, Buffalo horns and charms.
The Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude, told journalists in Ibadan that the pastor, the founder of Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Idapomimo Zion, Alagbado, Lagos, was arrested by operatives of the Federal Highway Patrol during a “stop and search’’ operation.
Mr. Odude said that the pastor was arrested at about 10:30 p.m. on May 4 on his way to another branch of the church at Imini in Afijo Local Government Area of Oyo State.
According to Premium Times, the pastor told journalists that he got the human head during a demolition exercise in Alagbado, Lagos.
The pastor who claimed to be the son of a herbalist, said he was taking the human head to the branch of the church at Imini to offer sacrifice in order to chase away thieves terrorising the area.
He, however, admitted that such an attitude was not expected from a pastor.
The police also paraded 18 suspects arrested for alleged armed robbery, stealing and cultism. Items recovered from them were eight vehicles, 14 cell phones and 106 rounds of ammunition.
