Cross River State Police Command has arrested a 45-year-old self-acclaimed prophet and founder of Victory is Sweet Ministries, for the alleged possession of a human skull.
The suspect identified as Michael Morris Bassey was reportedly found with a human skull, alongside charms in a wooden box, at the church's platform.
Commissioner of Police, Sikiru Akande, paraded him alongside 30 other suspects for alleged sundry crimes.
According to the Nation, Bassey was arrested upon a petition from a lady he allegedly attempted to hypnotize with fetish powers.
The picture of the lady was found in the prophet's possession tied to the human skull and some charms were also seen in the box.
Bassey admitted that he founded Victory is Sweet Ministries, which is not registered, but denied knowing anything about the skull and other items found in his possession.
"It was my mother that gave me a Bible and a garment as a young boy, and then I started helping people by liberating them from various curses, evil attacks, and enchantments," he said.
He also claimed that he was neither a herbalist nor fetish priest but a prophet.
