An unidentified man has reportedly stabbed one of the pastors of Redeem christian church of God (RCCG) in the city of Portharcourt, Rivers state.
According to an eyewitness, the Redeem Parish on Danjuma Street, Off Odili Road in the Rivers State capital, was having a vigil when at about 3 am Friday, a strange man walked in to stab the pastor.
The man came through the gates at that ungodly time, stabbed the gate-man with a knife he was holding, brushed through the congregation to the altar, stabbed the pastor and walked out with impunity.
Police Relations Officer, Rivers Command, Nnamdi Omoni said, when contacted by Vanguard, that “The Command is aware. We have put machinery in place to ensure the arrest of the killer. An investigation has been launched.
The Redeem community in Port Harcourt were yet to respond to this report.
