The incident happened in Ota, Ogun State.
Ahmed Iliyasu, the state commissioner of police, said the development followed the earlier arrest of one Jeremiah Adeola, a suspected serial kidnapper in the state.
He said Adeola had confessed delivering children he abducted to the pastor.
He also said another suspect – 43-year-old Haruna Afolabi – is the herbalist that allegedly buried the discovered human parts at the entrance of the church.
Iliyasu said the detectives attached to the police area command in Ota had swung into action after receiving intelligence on the incident on Sunday.
“On the strength of the intelligence, detectives from Ota area command were detailed to effect the arrest of the suspect; and at about 10:20am of the date, their efforts paid off when the said Jeremiah Adeola was promptly arrested,” he said.
“On interrogation, he confessed being a serial kidnapper and mentioned a prophet of a white garment church as the receiver of the kidnapped children.
“Upon his revelation, he was taken to the house/church of the said prophet at Iyana-Iyesi Ota, where one Prophet Samuel Babatunde, 67 years, a pastor in charge of the church and one Haruna Afolabi, 42 years, a traditional worshiper, were arrested.
“The floor of the church was dug as described by the first suspect, and parts suspected strongly to be human parts were dug out there in.” RECEIVE NEWS UPDATE ON: WHATSAPP +234 701 056 0394, AND TWITTER: @247NGNEWSUPDATE, EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE Share your story with us: email@example.com PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
