RCCG Pastor Assassinated On The Pulpit During Church Service In Lagos



Suspected assailants have killed a pastor with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Bolanle Ibrahim inside his church, the King of King parish at Maidan village in the Mile 12 area of Lagos state.

It is reported that the clergyman was praying for mothers and their children when the suspected assailants stormed the church and tried to drag him out.

The distraught wife of the deceased, Mrs. Kudirat Ibrahim said on the fateful day her husband was killed, he was fasting.

She said for the period they courted she never suspected her husband to be a cultist, wondering where people heard that he was a cult member.

An aunt of the deceased pastor, Mrs. Justina Alebiosu, who confirmed the incident, alleged that it was a clear case of hired assassination.

“Even before they killed him, they showed him his picture to identify if he was actually the right person they came for. His death was an unfortunate one.

We have lost a gentleman. It was true we were born as Muslims, but we converted to Christianity.

My thinking is that my brother had business transaction with someone.

I was told when the assailants wanted to drag him out of the pulpit where he was praying for women who brought their children for dedication, he begged them to kill him there and that was where he was eventually killed by the gunmen.

The assailants also threatened to shoot any of the members of the church who dare come close to them.

Confirming the incident, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), CSP Muyiwa Adejobi said a man was attacked during church service. The assailants went for him in the church and that the police were investigating the case.
