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.
Abiodun Odude, commissioner of police, told reporters 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.
Odude said the pastor was arrested at about 10:30pm on May 4 on his way to another branch of the church at Imini in Afijo local government area of Oyo state.
The suspect, on his part, told reporters that he got the human head during a demolition exercise in Alagbado, Lagos.
Isaiah, who claimed to be the son of a herbalist, said he was taking the human head to the branch of the church at Imini to offer sacrifice in order to chase away thieves terrorising the area.
He, however, said such an attitude was not expected from a pastor.
