Pastor Alimi Victor Killed In Kogi
It was gathered that the cleric was on his way home from the church service at the Okaito area along the Kabba-Okene road in Kogi when he was abducted and hacked to death by suspected assailants on March 10.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Williams Aya, said that the body of the cleric was found inside a pit along the route of his church, a few days after he was declared missing.
He added that the command went after the suspects, adding that intelligence led to the arrest of three suspects who are undergoing interrogation at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
Aya, however, said the command would not reveal the identities of the three suspects, noting that police were still making efforts to track more persons.
