An Okehi Local Government Area pastor, Alimi Victor of the Deeper Life Bible Church in Kogi State has been found dead per Daily Trust.
Naija News 247 learned that assailants struck the deceased while he was on his way home from a church service at Okaito area along Kabba-Okene road in Kogi.

Three suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of the pastor, which occurred on March 10.
The Police Public Relation Officer(PPRO), SP Williams Aya, told Daily Trust that the body of the deceased was found in a pit along the route of his church, a few days after he was declared missing.

SP Aya added that the command would not disclose the identities of the suspects now as the police were still making efforts to track more persons.
