A Pastor with United Evangelical Church identified as Michael Bassey, has been arrested for unlawful possession of a human skull.
The 45-year-old pastor was arrested by men of the cross River State police command at his residence.
The arrest was confirmed in a statement by the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Sikiru Akande.
According to him, the pastor was arrested upon the police receiving a complaint from a concerned citizen on the threat to life.
“The suspect was arrested with one human skull tied with the complainant’s picture and carved human image with red clothes. Investigation is still ongoing and the suspect will be arraigned in court.”
Bassey, however, claimed innocence as he told reporters that he was not into any diabolical act.
“I don’t know anything about this human skull. I am innocent of the charges against me,”
