The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a pastor, Ayodele Bamiduro, and a prophet, Olushola Akindele, for allegedly killing a woman.
This was disclosed by the State’s Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, while parading the suspects at the scene of the incident in Ijoko area of the state.
Mr Ilyasu said the arrest was made following a complaint by the traditional ruler of the area in Ifo Local Government Area of the state.
He stated that the monarch had reported that a decomposing body of a woman was found in an uncompleted building within the community.
After investigations by men of the command led to the suspects, the police chief described the incident as an act of “conspiracy and ritualism”, saying the perpetrators would be arraigned before a court of competent jurisdiction as soon as possible.
Iliyasu called on members of the public to remain calm, stating that the police would ensure those engaging in such activities and other forms of criminality were fished out and made to face the wrath of the law.
