SHOCKING: Police Parades Pastor Over Human Skull
The police in Ogun state, Nigeria on Tuesday paraded Pastor Michael Oyewole (29) and Mathew Akiode (30) at the command’s headquarters Eleweran, for allegedly exhuming human skull in Sabo, Abeokuta.
The state Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna Okoye, told journalists that Akiode was caught committing the offence in the midnight.
Okoye added that after Akiode’s arrest, the suspect confessed that he was sent to get the skull by the pastor Oyewole, a pastor at Ona-Ara Mimo Cherubim and Seraphim at Olomore, not far away from the crime scene.
He said, “We got information about somebody who was digging a grave and we swung into action. He did not know he was being watched while removing the corpse".
“We apprehended him immediately he severed the head from the body. He told us that it was one Pastor Oyewole that sent him".
The police commissioner said Pastor Oyewole was subsequently arrested, and that the two suspects would be charged to court after the conclusion of investigations.
Akiode, who confessed to committing the crime said he was pushed into it by economic hardship.
"I used to work on his (pastor’s) site but he said I would make more money if I could get him human skull. So, I felt it was an easy way of making money and that was why I did it".
“I’m surprised at his denial. He taught me how to go about it,” Akiode said.
But Oyewole denied sending the suspect on such a mission.
“I am a man of God and pastor. I heal people in God’s name and not with human skull. He is just telling lies and I don’t know what I have done to him. Only God can save me now,” Oyewole said.
