Two clerics have been arrested by police for allegedly killing a woman in Ogun state, South West Nigeria.

The clerics identified as Pastor Ayodele Bamiduro, and Prophet Olushola Akindele, were paraded by the Ogun State Police Command on Wednesday.

Commissioner of Police in the state, Ahmed Iliyasu, revealed that the arrest of the clerics was made following a complaint by the traditional ruler of Ijoko area in Ifo Local Government Area.
