He said, “On Thursday, they just called to tell the man that they had killed the pastor since they could not bring more money. The leadership of ECWA has been finding it difficult to break the information to the wife until yesterday (Friday) which was why people are just getting to know about it.

“What this means is that the bandits have become so cruel and brutal to their victims. They no longer have mercy.

“It shows our government needs to triple what its doing. These people cannot be defeated through rhetoric but by a superior fire. Despite the measures taken, they still continue their wickedness.”
