- A pastor has been arrested over the murder of a girl for ritual.
A yet-to-be-identified pastor and one other have been arrested for the alleged murder of a 13-year-old girl by the Delta State Police Command, EKO HOT BLOG has gathered.
It was gathered that the victim, Miracle Nwafor, and her mother, a petty trader, were members of the pastor’s church located along Board road in Boji Boji Agbor area of Delta State.
It was learnt that the remains of the girl was dumped close to the Central Hospital Agbor, where it was removed by the police on Friday.
The girl’s heart was said to have been ripped open and other vital organs removed by the killers.
A source in the community disclosed that the pastor had recently decided to help the girl after the evening service by calling for a motorcycle to convey her home.
“After waiting endlessly without seeing the girl at home, the mother went to the man of God to ask about her child. The cleric did not deny getting a commercial motorcycle to convey the girl home. He pacified the troubled woman that the child was safe,” the source disclosed.
EKO HOT BLOG further gathered that the motorcyclist was later arrested by the police and during interrogation, he allegedly implicated the pastor.
The suspected killers were said to have later led detectives to the spot where the girl’s mutilated body was dumped at the back of the state School of Nursing by Central Hospital.
The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe, who confirmed the killing, noted that the pastor and another member of the church had been arrested.
“We have arrested the pastor of the church and one other suspect who is a member of the church. Whether the other person is the okada man or not I can’t confirm for now,” the police spokesperson said.
