The Nigeria Police Force, Federal Capital Territory Command, has detained a Nigerian pastor and his son in connection with a mutilated female body found in a river in the area.

The preacher and his son were arrested in the Kubwa neighbourhood of Abuja on Monday, June 20.

A source told the Daily Trust on Tuesday, June 21, that the pastor and his son were apprehended when a tricycle driver approached the police and said that he transported the three sacks used to conceal the victim’s and animals’ corpses.

According to the source, the son told the Keke driver that the sacks contained trash and asked him to transport them to the PW Bridge dump. The taxi driver billed him N1,000.

“The next morning, after the baban bola (scavengers) broke into the bags in their normal quest for things, they discovered the contents and alerted the public. The information reached the Keke driver, and he took the police to the church voluntarily.”

Monday at 3 p.m., the pastor’s son, who was in handcuffs, was placed in a police van with the pastor.

The police returned to the scene on Tuesday afternoon, June 21, to conduct additional searches of the church before sealing the property.

The father and son continue to be detained by police.
