Police parade pastor allegedly caught with human head

The Oyo State Police Command on Friday paraded  a 55-year-old pastor  over unlawful possession of  a human head, buffalo horn  as well as gun powder and  charms.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the police also paraded 18 suspects arrested for alleged armed robbery, stealing and cultism.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr Abiodun Odude,  told newsmen   in Ibadan that the pastor said to be 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.

Odude said that the pastor was arrested at about 10:30 pm on May 4 on his way to another branch of the church at Imini in Afijo Local Government Area of Oyo State.

The suspect, on his part, told  newsmen  that he got the human head during  a demolition  exercise in Alagbado, Lagos.

Isaiah, who claimed to be the son of a herbalist, said that 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, said that such an attitude was not expected from  a pastor.

Items recovered from other robbery suspects were eight vehicles, 14 cell  phones and 106 rounds of  ammunition. (NAN)
