Kogi State Police Command has arrested a 45-year-old Pastor identified as Sunday Edino for stealing medical equipment in Lokoja, the State capital.
Pastor Edino and his alleged accomplices were arrested on Monday after they looted a medical equipment worth over N1.2 billion kept in a warehouse in Lokoja.
