A yet-to-be known pastor and his accomplice have been arrested by operatives of the Delta State Police Command over the alleged murder of a 13-year-old girl, identified as Nwafor Blessing, in Agbor.
Sources said the victim’s heart was ripped open with other vital organs removed from her body.
NEWS NAIJA gathered that the late Nwafor Blessing and her mother, a petty trader, were members of the Pastor’s Church located along Board road, Boji Boji, in Agbor.
Witnesses said the remains of the 13-year-old girl were a disgusting sight to behold as the corpse of the little girl was dumped close to the Central Hospital, Agbor, from where the police removed it on Friday.
According to a source in the community, the pastor had taken a decision to ‘help’ the girl after an evening service by calling for a motorcycle to convey her home.
“After waiting endlessly without seeing the girl at home, the mother went to the man of God to ask about her child. The pastor c did not deny getting a commercial motorcycle to convey the girl home. He consoled the troubled woman to be at peace that the child was safe,” the source who would not want his name mentioned said.
However, the motorcyclist who was later arrested by the police, during interrogation implicated the pastor of being in the know of what happened.
The suspects later led detectives to the spot where the girl’s marred body was dumped behind the state School of Nursing by Central Hospital.
Meanwhile, Edafe Bright, the state acting Police Public Relations Officer said “We have arrested the pastor of the church and one other suspect who is a member of the church.
An investigation is currently ongoing and they will face the law.
