Mrs Dennis Dupe, the younger sister of the killed CAC pastor claims the attackers came into the church compound on Friday night and shot him dead in his sleep.

According to Dupe, the mystery behind the gruesome murder of Pastor Philip Afemike is yet to be unraveled.

Area residents blamed Benin Police officials for negligence in the attack that lasted for hours.

When the suspected attackers stormed the church premises, residents called police, but the police arrived at the resident, did nothing and went back to their station to report that nothing had happened and the area was peaceful.

Several church workers reportedly sustained serious injuries in the attack.

The injured have been taken to a local hospital while the Pastor’s corpse was deposited at the mortuary.

Here are some photos from the attack scene.

    @ Idayat….why are you so dumb? What sort of comment did you leave on here like a brainless moron? I am also a muslim but I dont respond to news like this in a lewd way. There is nothing to suggests religion affiliation to this news.
    May the gentle soul of the man of God rest in peace, and the souls of the perpetrators burn in hell!! Amen.

    @ idayat,am not surprised at your comment.someone cannot bear the name Idayat and you expect her to say something good out of her mouth.This has further confirmed that Islam is boko Haram and you people are totally in support of the stupid acts.For God’s sake we are talking about a man of God been killed by gunmen and you are happy,you must be stupid.May what happened to the man of God happen in your family in Jesus name.To the family of the man of God,take heart,may God himself console you.REST ON MARTHYRE!

    2 me, dis r HIRED ASSASINS nt real robbers. Hence, we were nt told they stole anytin. Come 2 tink of it, y d Church n nt d Bank? Sb smwhr must hv masterminded dis attack.
    Wateva, i blv dat notin unda d Sun escapes d knowlege of d ALMIGHTY JEHOVAH GOD, d creator of Heaven n Earth.

    As long as HE is on HIS Throne, d wicked can neva go unpunished. Unless they come out, confess n repent, Nemesis will surely catch up wt dem, n pretty soon too.
