The story of a 40-year old pastor who beat his two children so brutally with cable, leaving severe marks all over their body continues to elicit widespread condemnation, as the man at the centre of it all has now been arrested in Jos by the officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in collaboration with Social Welfare Department of Jos South Local Government of Plateau State.
