The source said, “After waiting endlessly without seeing the girl at home, the mother went to the man of God to ask about her child. The cleric did not deny getting a commercial motorcycle to convey the girl home. He pacified the troubled woman that the child was safe.
It was further learnt that the motorcyclist was later arrested by the police and during interrogation, he allegedly implicated the pastor.
The suspects were said to have later led detectives to the spot where the girl’s mutilated body was dumped at the back of the state School of Nursing by Central Hospital.
