Pastor arrested with human body parts
The Presiding Pastor of Light of God Church paid the people who severed the body.
Two of the suspects, Olapade Saheed, 32, and Olatunji Abiodun, 26, were said to have been arrested with the exhibits at Ayegun Area of the capital city by vigilante men. This incident adds to the increasing claims of bizarre behaviour by the clergy and religious leaders.
The human parts were severed from a corpse buried barely four days earlier in the area.
A Muslim cleric, Hammed Sulaiman, 35, who participated in the Fidaus prayer for the deceased whose body parts were severed was also paraded alongside the Presiding pastor of Light of God C & S Church, Ojagbo, Oranyan, Ibadan.
Sulaiman, who said he had requested for some human parts which he needed to make money rituals had taken the duo of Saheed and Abiodun to the grave side of the deceased.
The pastor partner took custody of the severed human parts before the bubble burst.
Narrating what led to the arrest, Sulaiman said he only needed a handful of human parts to mix with some concoction to make financial breakthrough and he had requested the friend to help him get the human parts.
He said he paid some money to the people who severed the human body, claiming however that he has no knowledge of what the group was going to do with the human head.
