A Nigerian pastor, Joseph Nwajueze has been killed in China by security operatives.

He was reportedly escaping arrest from security operatives for alleged visa violations.

According to reports the Chinese security operatives in an attempt to capture the fleeing Nwajueze, used a security gadget to demobilise him.

The security gadget made the pastor numb, leading to his fall, which eventually led to his death.

Joseph Nwajueze was living with his wife, Chinwe, and four children in China before this incident.
