The suspect, Adedoyin Oyekan

The police in Lagos, on Thursday said they have arrested a pastor for allegedly beheading a seven-year old boy and burying his head in the church’s altar.

The command’s spokesman, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, confirmed the arrest to newsmen, stressing that the suspect was arrested with an accomplice at Ikorodu.

Famous-Cole said the policemen arrested one Eric, whose confession led to the arrest of the pastor and the recovery of the boy’s body.

“On investigation, one of the suspects, Eric confessed to the crime. He led a team of policemen to Odokekere/ Odogunyan in Ikorodu area to apprehend Oyekan, who later led the team to where the seven-year-old boy was beheaded and his head buried.

They hid the body inside canal. The two suspects involved have been arrested and the body and the head of the boy were brought to the station.

Investigation has commenced and the case would be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba, Lagos,” Famous-Cole said.

The pastor, identified as Adedoyin Oyekan and one Eric were arrested at Odokereke, Odogunyan of Ikorodu on Thursday.

It was gathered that the suspects were rescued from being lynched by some angry residents of the area after committing the offence at 16, Apata Abo Street, Odokekere, Odogunyan.

Eric, who was said to be a friend to the victim’s father, allegedly stole the boy around 11AM on Wednesday, after his father left him in his care.

It was gathered the suspect was said to have taken the boy to the pastor’s church where they beheaded and buried him between 2AM and 4AM on Thursday.

When the victim’s father came back to take his son, Eric claimed he had sent him home.

Eric opened up during interrogation and led detectives to the pastor’s place where the child’s mutilated body was buried.

“The Ayangburin of Ikorodu, Oba Kabir Adewale Shotobi said he will make sure the accused are brought to justice,” a source told NAN.

      So True. I live in the USA and in the state of NH. We had a pastor up here that kidnapped a woman and chained her up in this dungeon and raped her everyday. Too many people entering a sacred profession with mental illness and its all over the world. How very sad for that child and his family and may God due justice to this event.

    Even the Bible said when the end time comes people will be the lover of themselves, money and worldly things rather than God, they will do signs and wonders in his name yet he knew them not…….. But the holy spirit will guide you to know the true man of God sent by God and do God’s will alone… It is well..

Every lazy man want to b a pastor just to get rich and b like other so-called men of God who goes around buying private jets and others. I pray God continue to expose them. May the soul of d young child rest in peace. Amen

      It is called offering to the devil….an altar is very important to any individual. It now depends on the kind of altar and sacrifice you make. You have the devil’s altar with blood sacrifice and you have God’s altar with Jesus’ blood. You get my drift?

    I read this for today’s devotional —
    Jeremiah 23:16 Thus says the Lord of hosts: Do not listen to the words of the [false] prophets who prophesy to you. They teach you vanity (emptiness, falsity, and futility) and fill you with vain hopes; they speak a vision of their own minds and not from the mouth of the Lord. (AMPC)

    –That is why I reiterate: “…work out your own salvation with fear and with trembling.” (Philippians 2:12).

    Personal agenda na hin dey drive pastors these days. I used to have one pastor or the other praying for me until It hit me that, “can a pastor pray for you more than you yourself?” After all, it is me that the shoe is pinching. Hereafter, I just cut them off and I mean, I don’t answer their phone calls, etc. anymore. Let everybody do their own jare. Especially with their generic prayers that they pray for you and everyone else. Prayer must be customized as in, hit the spot, not general one. If so, I can be doing “Our Father Who Art in Heaven” on my own abi!
