18 years old virgin killer Ikechukwu who implicated controversial Lagos
pastor Sign Fireman in his alleged ritual murder of a 12 year old girl,
Bose Ogoja, has been accused of lying by his own mother.
And according to his mum, her son is a serial rapist, who became
one after he was cursed by a neighbor in 2009. That the alleged
ritual killing had nothing to do with rituals or Pastor Fireman but was a
clear case of rape that led to murder.
Talking with reporters on Thursday, Mrs Esther Egbo said although they attended Fireman’s church, they
never met with him because as the General Overseer of the church, it was
not always easy for members to see him at random.
She said her son did not even have Fireman’s telephone number and
wondered where the supposed meeting he had with her son took place.
Ikechukwu had earlier said he approached Pastor Sign Fireman for money,
but he told him that he should strangulate a little girl.
That while strangulating the girl, she would pass out faeces in the
throes of death. and if the boy could do this, he would give him N100,
However, the suspect’s mother says the boy later confessed to her that
nothing of such happened and that the 12 year old only passed feces due
to the rape and strangulation.
An aide to the pastor has also described the allegations against Fireman as ridiculous, adding that Fireman could not have stooped so low as to encourage a teenager to commit murder.
“I have spoken to the boy (Ikechukwu) and he told me that he was coerced
into saying what he said to the press. Pastor Fireman is a very rich
man. What sort of money ritual would he want to do? His father owns a
gold factory in Russia while his mother is a professor at ABSU. This is a
man that has distinguished himself.
Contacted by Vanguard, Dr. Fireman said he was innocent of the allegations, saying he does not know the boy.
