‘Pastor’ Anthony Obo of God’s Commandment Ministry was defiant this Tuesday evening when he was paraded by the police, claiming that the blood found in a red bucket in his church is that of a goat and a chicken he killed to celebrate his baby’s dedication.

The ‘pastor’ who was paraded along with five other accomplices told our reporter in an interview that he did not abduct the one year six months old girl whose heart was found in a white basin in his church.

“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”. He said.

The ‘man of god’ who was once an okada man watched without displaying any emotion as the police brought out and displayed the items which he has been using for his ‘pastoral’ activities which  more or less have the outlook of an occultist shrine  and emitted awful stench.

The Cross River Police Command spokesperson,  ASP Irene Ugbo, said the ‘pastor’ and his accomplices were arrested following  a confessional statement by one of the suspects that they were sent by the ‘pastor’ to abduct and kill a baby whose heart was put in a basin and handed over to him.

“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” said the police PRO.

She added that the photographs of many people were found in the church and investigations are being carried out to identify the reason the pictures found their way there.

Meanwhile, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, Chairman in the state, Dr. Lawrence Ekwok has called on the police to carry out proper investigations and ensure the man, if found guilty is prosecuted to serve as deterrence to other “herbalists who masquerade as pastors to cause havoc in the society”.

“We commend the members of the public for being alert and they should continue to blow (the) whistle on others who have the same obnoxious intentions and attitudes as Anthony Obo”. The PFN chair said.

He added that the suspect is not a member of the PFN and people of his ilk do not identify with the organization because they would be found out since a screening exercise has been put in place to fish out “herbalists among us”.
