Police Parade Pastor Caught With Human Head

The Oyo State Police Command on Friday paraded a 55-year-old pastor over unlawful possession of a human head, buffalo horn as well as gun powder and charms.

Police say the pastor was arrested at about 10:30 pm on May 4 on his way to another branch of the church at Imini in Afijo Local Government Area of Oyo State.

The police also paraded 18 suspects arrested for alleged armed robbery, stealing and cultism.

The Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude, told newsmen in Ibadan that the pastor said to be the founder of Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Idapomimo Zion, Alagbado, Lagos, was arrested by operatives of the Federal Highway Patrol during a “stop and search” operation.

The pastor, on his part, told newsmen that he got the human head during a demolition exercise in Alagbado, Lagos.

Pastor Isaiah, said to be the son of a herbalist, said he was taking the human head to a branch of the church at Imini to offer sacrifice in order to chase away thieves terrorising the area.

He, however, admitted that such an attitude was not expected from a pastor.
