Masked Gunmen Kill CAC Pastor in Edo State


A Christ Apostolic Church pastor, Oluwarotimi Akinroyeje, has been shot dead at the church’s mission house in the Ago Gbooro area of Ore, in the Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State.

According to a source, a masked gunman entered the mission house at about 1am on Monday and went straight to where the pastor was, and shot him at close range with a locally-made gun.

The source said the motive behind the killing was unknown, adding that the assailant did not take anything from the cleric after shooting him dead.

“The man, who wore a mask, entered into the mission house in the middle of the night and brought out a locally-made gun. He shot the pastor dead and did not take anything when he was going; he just killed him and left,” the source said.

The Public Relations Officer of the Ondo State Police Command, Mr. Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident, adding that the command had commenced investigation into the case.

He, however, alleged that the deceased’s family members were not cooperating with the command on investigation, saying they had refused to honour police invitation.

He said, “The family of the deceased should do well to cooperate with the police. They have not been assisting us in our investigation; their only concern is for us to release the corpse to them for burial.

“It will be good if the family can be feeding us with useful information. We are not magicians; it is from the information we get that we can have our lead and arrest the perpetrator.

“What the family is doing on the matter is not good enough.”
