The pastor who was arrested for killing a commercial sex worker in Kogi state and using her body parts for rituals which was buried in his altar - has confessed to be have been engaging in money rituals while preaching salvation messages to his church members.
Pastor Olusegun Otaru of the Voice of Cannan Temple (C&S) Aladura Church Ozuru in Adavi, Kogi State, a father of eight children, revealed this to journalists Monday (yesterday) while being paraded along with his accomplices at the force headquarters in Lokoja.
Otaru who was arrested by the police last week for his involvement in the killing of Miss Mercy Moses 19, for money ritual, blamed his actions on the devil and his quest to solve poverty that has bedevilled his family.
He disclosed that he has participated in the exhuming of three bodies from the burial grounds which he used to prepare concoction for money to no avail stressing that the failure of the concoction made him look for a fresh human being which he thought would be effective.
He added that he learnt the trade from one Alfa at Abeokuta before he relocated home saying that he expected to reap over N2.5 million only from Miss Mercy Moses.
Explaining further, he said, “We, first of all, took a turns to rape her and after we killed her. We also took turn to sleep with the dead body. We cut the head, the fingers and toes. We ground the fingers and the toes which we mix with other concoctions which we lick every morning expecting an inflow of money.”
