Children in search of mother
Legit.ng gathers that the community became suspicious when the pastor’s children complained to neighbours that they had not seen their mother for days after she had a quarrel with their dad.
The youths of the community, led by their president, Johnson, subsequently went to search the pastor’s compound and were shocked to discover the woman’s corpse buried in a shallow grave.
He has since been handed over to the police. The youth president added that he has confessed to the police that he killed his wife.
Johnson was quoted to have said:
“I am just coming from the (police) station now, he just opened up that he killed the woman about seven days ago.
“From what the children said, they (the pastor and the wife) had been having issues and sometimes he would say in front of the children that he would kill the wife and nothing would happen.
“On this particular day, the man chased the children away when he and the wife started fighting.”
Meanwhile, a Facebook user identified as Nsikakabasi Akpan has also shared alleged photos of the pastor.
