The Ondo State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps has arrested a pastor of the Christ Apostolic Church, Moses Abiodun, for allegedly burying fetish items inside his church in Ikota, in the Ifedore Local Government Area of the state.
The 34-year-old suspect was arrested on Wednesday following information that the cleric allegedly performed rituals in the church.
The state Commandant of the NSCDC, Mr. Fasiu Adeyinka, said the suspect was the founder of the C.A.C. Dagunro and he was alleged to have buried some substances inside his church.
The NSCDC boss explained that his men quickly swung into action and went to the church where some fetish items were exhumed.
Adeyinka said, “ He was asked to dig some spots inside the church where various items such as a cow and pigeon head, big clay pot, white clothes and other charms were exhumed at the entrance and inside the church.”
The commandant said the command had started investigation into the matter, adding that the pastor was still in the NSCDC’s custody.
He enjoined the people of the state to be very vigilant and always give useful information to the corps.
