A pastor, identified simply as Timothy Abiola, has allegedly shot dead a fellow pastor, who was also his friend, Pastor Bamiji Ilori, PUNCH reports.
This was revealed in a statement on Sunday by the Police Public Relations Officer of the Osun State command, Folasade Odoro.
Odoro said that the reason for the shooting is not yet known, adding that the incident happened in Ikire, Osun State.
“Ilori had confessed to the police. Investigation into the killing has started and the suspect will soon be charged to court,” Odoro said.
Odoro, who did not give the name of the church, added that the crime was committed with a locally made gun, and that the suspect was arrested after a relative of the deceased reported to the police.
