ICC Note

A masked gunman stormed the mission house of the Christ Apostolic Church in Ondo State. When he entered late Monday night, he was looking for Rev. Oluwarotimi Akinroyeje, a clergyman with the Church. He then shot the Pastor, and according to one witness, waited until he died to leave. The gunmen did not steal anything and it appears he was only targeting the Pastor. The Police are still unsure what the motive was and the family has not been willing to work with them. We pray that the murderer is caught and for comfort for the family of the slain minister.
