Popular Bishop Arrested by Police After Murdering Man by Burying Him Alive at His Compound

A controversial pastor was arrested at his luxury home in the suburbs of the city after a man he buried alive in a grave died. The incident which took place at the compound of his church was meant to be an attempt to emulate the biblical death and resurrection of Jesus after 3 days.

According to K24 digital news media platform, the victim identified as James Sakara is said to have agreed to be buried alive by the rich pastor in an attempt to perform a miraculous resurrection after three days. The head of Zion Church and founder Luckson Phiri is said to have bound the victims hands with a rope before being lowered into the grave and buried with soil.

On the third day, the congregation made their way to the burial site to allegedly witness the miracles only to find James had died. A postmortem analysis by the government pathologist reported that the deceased died from suffocation in the grave. The pastor will be arraigned in court to face several charges including murder.
