Kogi State Police Command has arrested three suspects in connection with the murder of a Deeper Life pastor.
The punch had reported that Pastor Alimi Victor of Deeper Life Bible Church in Okehi Local Government Area had been abducted and allegedly axed to death on March 10 after the church service.
He was reportedly on his way home from church service in the Okaito area along the Kabba-Okene road in Kogi when he was abducted and hacked to death by suspected assailants.
State Police Public Relations Officer SP Williams Aya said the cleric’s body was found in a grave along the route of his church, days after he went missing.
He said the command pursued the suspects, adding that the intelligence led to the arrest of three suspects.
According to him, the three suspects are being questioned at the Criminal Investigation Department.
Aya, however, declined to reveal the identities of the suspects, saying police were still making efforts to find more people.
