The Ogun State Police Command has arrested two pastors, for allegedly killing their brother-in-law Peter Chukwuyem, in the Papa-Ibafo area of the state.
The suspects are Chukwuka Stephen and Ejim, who allegedly waylaid and killed their brother-in-law after he had stopped them from conducting church services in the frontage of his house.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed in a statement on Thursday that the suspects, while living with Chukwuyem, were using the frontage of his house to conduct church services.
“Men of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested two self-acclaimed pastors, Chuckwuka Stephen, 43, and Ejim Stephen, 39, for killing their brother in-law, Peter Chukwuyem, on Tuesday, February 5, 2019.”
The victim, who was married, to the elder sister of the two suspects, the police said, brought them from their village in Delta State to Papa-Ibafo in Ogun State, where they lived with the couple for some time.
The police spokesman, added that “While they were living with the deceased, they were using the frontage of his house for their church activities, but when their conduct was no longer pleasant to their brother-in-law, he sent them away from the place, which led to them nursing animosity against the deceased.”
