The Nigeria Police Force, Federal Capital Territory Command, on Monday arrested a pastor and his son in the Kubwa area of Abuja over a mutilated female corpse dumped in the area.
According to reports, the pastor and his son were arrested after a tricycle rider approached the police and told them that he conveyed the three sacks used in concealing the remains of the victim and those of the animals.
A source said, “The son lied to the Keke rider that the sacks were scraps and asked him to take them to the PW Bridge dumping site. The rider charged him N1,000.
“It was the following morning after the baban bola (scavengers) broke the bags in their usual search for items that they discovered the contents and alerted people. The information got to the Keke rider and he voluntarily led the police to the church.”
It was also gathered that the pastor’s son was in handcuffs and the pastor was seen being led out of the building by the police around 3pm into a police van.
He said the police later returned to the area to make further searches on the building before they sealed the church premises.
The police noted that two people were in police custody.
