The lady was then dragged to the church to confirm her words that the pastor was also involved in juju practice and a search in the altar revealed 5 human heads buried alongside some other skulls of animals, a basin of blood and fingernails.

“As the Pastor’s altar was later vandalized, other revelations emerged. In his altar was found 5 human heads buried alongside some other skulls of animals.
The youths also discovered a basin of blood and fingernails at a discrete area of the church.
On interrogation by the vigilantes, the pastor who is well respected in the community confessed to being a spiritual father to some militants and other criminals who come to him for various powers and other members of his church.
He also confessed that he used strands of hair from babies dedicated at the church for his devilish rituals.”
Another community source who claimed to be an ex-militant said that after preparing charms for the criminals, the pastor was constantly on their necks for payment but when some of the militants’ charms became impotent, they became angry and accused him of reversing the charms he prepared for them.
