Edet who said he was not in a position to hand out details to the press, appealed to our correspondent to wait to get details from the presiding pastor when the service was over.

He, however, said the suspect had been handed over to the police and moved to the Sabon Tasha Division of the Nigeria Police Force.

An officer at the Sabo Police station confirmed to DAILY POST that the suspect had actually been brought there when our reporter went to get more details but directed our reporter to speak with the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO).
