A pastor of God’s Commandment Ministry who claimed that the occult items found in his church costumes for the drama group in his church while the blood found in a red bucket in his church was that of a goat and a chicken he killed to celebrate his baby’s dedication.
The pastor was paraded by police on Tuesday alongside five other Accomplices.
According to Vanguard the suspect did not abduct the 1 year six month old girl heart which was found in a white basin.
He said: “The red chairs covered in white sheet and the black bag and other occult items were used by the youth of my church for art and drama presentation, while the blood in the red bucket is that of the goat and chicken I killed to celebrate the dedication of my child who was one year last week.”
However the Spokesperson of Cross River state Police Command, Ms Irene Ugbo, said the pastor and his accomplices were arrested following a confessional statement by one of the suspects that they were sent by the pastor to abduct and kill a baby, whose heart was put in a basin and handed over to him.
She said: “The heart has been sent to the University of Calabar for forensic examination, while we are investigating where the body of the baby was dumped or buried.” She said investigations into pictures of those found in the church are being carried out to identify the reason the pictures were found there.
