The interview held shortly after yet to be identified armed men killed Mr Gabriel Abiodun at the premises of the Diocesan Office at Alagbaka GRA in Akure.
The incident was said to have taken place after Abiodun returned from a bank where he had gone to collect money meant for the church.
His remains have since been evacuated and taken to the mortuary by a team of policemen.
Confirmed the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer explained that the gunmen escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash after killing the victim.
He described the incident as unfortunate, stressing that men of the command were already on the search of the assailants.
Joseph, however, appealed to the people of the state to always be security conscious and seek police escort when they want to move huge cash.
He gave assurance that the culprits would be apprehended and brought to justice.
