The police in Benin have arrested one Apostle Ikenna Okafor for allegedly burying charms in his church in Benin.
The identity of what the suspect buried has not been revealed but many residents around the church located along Esigie St. in Benin alleged it was a live animal.
Policeman took away the Pastor to avoid being lynched by angry residents who stormed the church.

Confirming the report, the Police Public Relations Officer for Edo Police Command, DSP Osifo Abiodun, said the pastor who is now a suspect was under investigation.
He explained that Pastor Okafor has made useful statements that will assist police in their investigation.
