Gang Kills Pastor for Preaching the Gospel

Four men confessed to killing a pastor because he was preaching the gospel, according to a statement from police.

The gang “confessed to have been responsible for the kidnapping Pastor Chukwu Ekere of same Ohigha community and killed him for the simple reason that the man of God disturbed them with his preaching of repentance and also for urging them to shun their nefarious activities and accept God,” Nigeria’s PM News reported.
