At least six persons were assassinated on Friday at Warrake in Edo when gunmen reportedly attacked a motorcade of the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johson Suleman.
The cleric was on his way to Auchi in Edo after he returned from a missionary trip to Tanzania when the gunmen reportedly attacked his motorcade.
