Pastor Denies Rituals Allegations, Says They Are Drama Costumes

Pastor Anthony Obo of God’s Commandment Ministry in Cross Rivers state, who was arrested last week after the heart of an eighteen-month-old baby was found in his church, was paraded alongside five others before newsmen yesterday.

While speaking with newsmen, the fake pastor claimed that the ‘occult items’ found in his church were costumes which the youths in his church recently used for a drama presentation while the blood found in a bucket in his church was from a goat and a chicken he killed to celebrate his baby’s dedication last week.

“The red chairs covered in white sheet and the black bag and other occult items were used by the youth of my church for art and drama presentation, while the blood in the red bucket is that of the goat and chicken I killed to celebrate the dedication of my child who was one year last week.”

The state police command’s public relations officer, Irene Ugbo, who paraded the suspects, said another suspect in police custody confessed to have been sent by the pastor to kidnap and kill the baby. The heart of the baby was found in a basin in the church.

“The heart has been sent to the University of Calabar for forensic examination, while we are investigating where the body of the baby was dumped or buried,” she said
