The Cross River State police has proved effective after apprehending a clergyman, Pastor Obo-Ekpenyog who allegedly murdered a 2-year-old baby.

He was paraded at the state command along with six other suspects who helped him in an assault he launched at the residence of the infant's parents.

Obo-Ekpenyog, who presided over the Royal God’s Commandment Ministry in Calabar was arrested after the police found some incriminating items in the church.

This happened during a search made possible due to the alarm raised by the victim's mother who was able to identify the pastor despite covering his face with a mask after forcefully entering her home.
