“After dropping the madam, they drove to the house of their boss relation as directed,” he said.

“However, on their way home, they learned that the Oro sacrifice was still going on in the Olambe area, making it impossible for them to pass through.”

“They then came across a celestial church that was holding a vigil and decided to join them despite the fact that it was already late at night.”

While they were standing outside the church, the suspect, who also happened to be the shepherd in charge, came out with a pump action rifle and shot Kemi Johnson in the leg before they could say anything.
