Nigerian Pastor Allegedly Kills 22-Year-Old Man, Family Accuses Police Of Covering Up Crime

A pastor of a Christ Apostolic Church, David Ayorinde has been accused by the family of one, Pelumi Babayemu for allegedly killing their son and extended the allegation to the Nigeria Police for trying to cover up the case.

The pastor whose church is situated in Abekoko area of Ifo (Ogun state) was alleged by the family that he had turned the deceased against the his family by hypnotizing the victim before he was killed.

Newsmen learnt that 22-year-old Pelumi who played drums for the church had gone to visit Ayorinde, the accused Pastor when he reportedly slumped.

The mother of the victim, Peju, said Ayorinde arrested her and her husband on the pretext that their son had committed a crime. She added that after Pelumi slumped, the pastor went to report to the police instead of taking him to a hospital in order to save his life.

Peju said;

“Pelumi was my only child. He played drums and used to go to churches to play. The owner of one of the churches he played for came to us and asked us to allow him to stay with his family with the promise that he would work as a secretary in their bakery. We obliged and he started living with them.
“All of a sudden, Pelumi left the place. We searched for him for a while and when he came back home, he told us that he met a guy in one of the places he went to play drums, who took him to Ayorinde that he should be playing drums in his church. He moved to the pastor’s place. We kept asking Pelumi to take us to where he was now staying, but he didn’t because the pastor had already hypnotized him.
“On July 19, members of the family of the pastor he formerly stayed with were arrested and his father and I were also arrested. We were taken to the Ifo Police Station on the pretext that Pelumi had stabbed someone and the person was in a critical condition in a hospital. Unknown to us, it was Ayorinde, who fabricated the lie.
“We got to the police station around 2 pm and we were not allowed to see him. It was around 5.30 pm that the policemen told us that Pelumi had died.”

The father of the deceased, Ebenezer, said the circumstances surrounding his son’s death showed that he did not die of natural causes. He also alleged that the police were trying to cover up the case by tampering with evidence. The deceased’s father explained;

“We learnt that my son left the bakery around 11 am and went to Ayorinde’s place. It was while he was at Ayorinde’s house that he was told to enter a room. As soon as he stepped into the room, he allegedly fell down and died.
“When we went to the hospital, the doctor said the autopsy showed that if Pelumi had been taken to the hospital immediately, he would have survived because he had about four hours to live. But instead of the pastor to have taken him to a hospital, he covered him up and went to the police station and bribed the police to do his bidding.
“Pelumi fell down around 11 am and we were not informed until around 2 pm. The police tampered with his pictures when he died. The police took his body from the mortuary back to the pastor’s house and took a different set of pictures. Pelumi’s belongings are still in the pastor’s place but as soon as the incident happened, Ayorinde removed the signboard of his church.”

The accused pastor has now been arrested and taken into police custody.
