A pastor who allegedly killed a one-year and six-month-old baby for ritual in Cross River State has been paraded by the police command.

The suspect was paraded alongside six others.

The man whose name was given as Obo-Ekpenyog is the pastor of Royal God’s Commandment Ministry, Calabar.

The spokesperson of the command, ASP Irene Ugbo, while parading the suspects before newsmen, said he was arrested alongside six others on Aug. 24 by men of the command.

According to the PPRO, “they were arrested when the parents of the deceased raised an alarm that their child had been abducted by some masked men who stormed their house.

“Some operatives were immediately deployed to search the church and its environs.”

She added that “they found some incriminating items and arrested the pastor and six others.”
