The Punch reports that the police investigation led to the discovery of the body and the arrest of the cleric alongside Ibrahim Ayuba and Yusuf Aliu.
It was reported that the trio confessed when they were paraded by security operatives on Tuesday, July 4, that they wanted to use the body for money ritual.
