Yusuf Isah, a 32-year-old man, has been arrested by the police in connection with the assault on Apostle Johnson Suleman, the senior pastor and General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide. In October 2022, gunmen attacked the pastor’s convoy on the Benin-Auchi Road in Edo State, resulting in the deaths of six people, including three policemen.
During a press conference in Abuja, the Force spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, announced that Isah was apprehended by the Intelligence Rapid Team after a thorough investigation. The suspect was found in possession of five AK 47 rifles, two K2 assault rifles, and 180 live ammunition.
