The pastor of the United Evangelical Church, Michael Bassey has been arrested by Cross River state police command for the possession of human skull at No. 56 Uwanse by Asuquo Ekpo Street in Calabar South.
According to the state police commissioner who confirmed the action said that the 45 year old man was arrested after a victim reported to the police about him.
It was reported that the victim’s picture was found tied to a skull, effigies, and other criminal charms, inside a “covenant” box kept at the altar in the church.
“The suspect was arrested with one human skull tied with the complainant’s picture and carved human image with red clothes.
“Investigation is still ongoing and the suspect will be arraigned in court,”the police commissioner said.
Speaking with journalists, Prophet Bassey who claimed to be the founder of “Victory is Sweet Ministries” denied that he knows nothing about the skull, effigies, and charms found in his possession.
He said: “I am a prophet, I don’t know anything about the skull, my mother gave me Bible and garment as a young boy, then I started helping people by liberating them from various curses and enchantments.
”I started by liberating my family who always “sacrificed” their male children for the female ones to survive, I broke that covenant and I have been liberating people in Cross River and beyond, I am not a killer, I only help people.
“I am not a herbalist, I am a prophet, I was ordained at a Church ( names withheld)at Azikiwe Street, Calabar by my spiritual father. After I liberate people, they come back and show appreciation, I am not a native doctor.”
