Ofuche Ukoha (Dr. Sign Fireman) –a popular miracle pastor in Lagos- Nigeria has been arrested by police over alleged ritual murder of a 12 year old girl.
The involvement of pastor Sign Fireman was revealed by a 17 year old teenager who was arrested by police officers in Lagos after it was alleged that he killed a young girl.
The suspect identified as Ikechukwu Friday was interrogated at the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Panti, Yaba and presented before the press.
He told police that Pastor Fireman asked him to kill a young girl and obtain her faeces. The pastor promised to give him N100,000 after the deal
“I attend a popular church around Ketu Street, Aguda but I live with my parents in Badagry. I just finished secondary school and I have been very broke so I approached the pastor for money but he told me that I should strangulate a little girl.
“He said when strangulating the girl, she would pass out faeces. The pastor said I should obtain the faeces and bring it to him. He said if I could do this, he would give me N100,000.” Narrated the teenager
“So, on December 30, 2013, I approached a young girl, Bose Ogoja. I told the girl that I wanted to show her something and that she should follow me. So I took her to an abandoned NITEL building and locked the door.
“I pressed her neck tightly and she passed out faeces. I was, however, not able to get the faeces because I was caught before I could escape.”
He was arrested by neighbours in the area and handed over to the Badagry Police Division, State Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide said
Braide said the pastor, who allegedly gave the boy the instruction, had been arrested and was already cooperating with the police.
She also said the outcome of the investigation would soon be made public.
