The commissioner said that the case was reported by one Adebola Saheed, who stated that his younger sister, Mrs Raliat Sanni, 35, had left home since March 21 and had yet to return.
Punch reported that Iliyasu said on the strength of the report, police operatives at Ewekoro Division led by SP Oluwarotimi Jeje, the Divisional Police Officer, started an investigation.
He said the pastor, after discreet analysis of facts, was the last person who was seen with the missing person.
The so-called Pastor was promptly arrested and thoroughly interrogated.
“In the course of interrogation, the pastor confessed to killing the victim and burying her inside his church after removing her head and two hands for reasons only known to him and God,’’ he said.
The police commissioner said the suspect named another accomplice who was also paraded.
“This is the height of wickedness that can be meted out to a fellow human being. It will interest you to know that the victim was a secret lover to the pastor who eventually hacked her to death, ” he said.
