.Ogun Church Founders Allegedly Kill Member During Fellowship


Two suspects, Chidi Samuel and Paul Zakari, co-founders of a Christian fellowship group, Life Builders Network, have been arrested by the police for allegedly killing a church member, Favour Okumazor, in Oyan village, Imala, in the Abeokuta-North area of Ogun State.

   The state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, who paraded the suspects and 13 others at the police headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, on Monday, said they were arrested for various crimes, including armed robbery, murder, kidnapping, among others in different parts of the state.

  Bankole said, “The suspects took some youths numbering seven away from their parents to an isolated area in Oyan village via Imala for what they called Bible study and fellowship.”

   The police boss said the suspects were arrested following a report by a parent, who was alerted by one of the victims after he escaped.

  He noted that a murder suspect, Saheed Ogundahun, was arrested on March 13, for allegedly killing a Fulani herdsman with a dane gun and burying him on his farm in Ewekoro.

  He explained that the corpse was exhumed and taken to the Ifo General Hospital’s mortuary for an autopsy.

  Bankoke said, “On credible intelligence, one Saheed Ogundahun, a hunter, was arrested in connection with the case.

  “On interrogation, the said Saheed confessed that he shot the victim to death and buried him in the bush.”

   Also paraded were two notorious kidnappers, Sulaimon Mohammed, 40, and Jato Bello, 40.
