Victor Kanayo, a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), was on Saturday, killed by suspected members of the Badoo cult gang in Ikorodu, Lagos State.
His wife and 10-month-old baby were found unconscious and were later rushed to Ikorodu General Hospital by policemen from Igbogbo Division.
It was gathered that the assailants smashed the head of the pastor with two big stones, which were said to have been found beside him. The murderers cut the iron bars on the window of the bungalow the family lived in before gaining entrance into the house.
The pastor and his families were the only ones living in the building because the landlord moved out some months ago as a result of increased insecurity. Kanayo was said to be an easy going person.
Confirming the killing, the Police Public Relation Officer (PPRO), Chike Oti , a Superintendent of Police said, the born again Pastor may have been involved with the dreaded cult group as human skull tattoo was drawn on his left arms. He added the sign gives police more interest to dig into the issue of his past.
