A Pastor of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor Alimi Victor has been assassinated in Okehi Local Government Area of Kogi State, Daily Trust has reported
Victor was on his way home from a church service at Okaito area along Kabba-Okene road in Kogi, when he was attacked.
It was learnt that the death of the pastor may not be unconnected with issues arising from a grant scheme that he allegedly got himself involved in.
The handlers of the scheme were said to not have disbursed the grant to the beneficiaries.
Police have arrested three suspects in connection with the death of Alimi, which occurred on March 10.
The Police Public Relation Officer(PPRO), SP Williams Aya, told Daily Trust that the body of the deceased was found in a pit along the route of his church, few days after he was declared missing.
He added that the command went after the suspects, and that intelligence has led to the arrest of three suspects.
According to him, the three suspects are already undergoing interrogation at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
SP Aya added that the command would not disclose the identities of the suspects now as the police were still making efforts to track more persons.
