Officers of the Imo Command of the Nigeria Police Force have arrested a prophet of Christ Army Ministry, Ulakpo, Owerri North LGA, for allegedly Kidnapping and killing of one of his church members, Princewill Ezeji.

The victim, Ezeji was said to have come visiting the suspect, Michael Mbonu, seeking his blessings driving his Toyota Camry car, before he was killed and dispossessed of the car by the supposed man of God.

One Kingsley Udemba, 24, who was arrested alongside the prophet, was said to have capitalised on the situation to fleece Princewill’s family of the sum of N960,000 as ransom, claiming to have abducted the missing man.

However, while parading the suspects, Mr. Rabiu Ladodo, the Imo State commissioner of police, told newsmen in Owerri, that the prophet had initially kidnapped the victim before getting rid of him.

Ladodo noted that the disappearance of the victim was reported to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) by his brother, Emeka Ezeji.

Upon the arrest of the prophet, he took the police to where he murdered the victim, the police Boss said, adding that some personal effects like phone, car and SIM card, which the victim took to the prophet’s residence, were recovered.
