Pastor Chidiebere Okoroafor, the Senior Pastor of a new generation church, Alter of Grace Ministries who reportedly killed three people, including two pregnant women and an infant in Oyigbo Local Government Area of Rivers State, has been arrested and paraded by the Rivers State Police Command.
It was gathered that the Pastor who impregnated a chorister identified as Olumma Onweagba, reportedly killed her after he pressured her to terminate the pregnancy, which she refused. The body of those the Pastor killed, claiming he didn’t know what came over him were recovered within the premises of the church, Alter of Grace Ministries near Izuom market in Oyigbo.
“I don’t know what came over me. It was the handiwork of the devil. I am just begging for forgiveness from the families,” he said.
Speaking on the arrest of the suspect, the Police said;
“We discovered that the Pastor was having an amorous affair with one of the deceased, Uloma.
“The Pastor manipulated the two women on the 10th of December by first luring Concila to an uncompleted building and killed her there.
“After strangulating the late Concilia, he then took Uloma with Christabel in a tricycle to an isolated farm at Igberu road and gruesomely murdered her in the surrounding overgrown Bush with the baby strapped to her back.
“She was suffocated with the wrapper she used in strapping the baby to her back.”
The Rivers State Police Command, who disclosed that the death of Oluoma and others came because she refused to terminate the pregnancy, further said that suspect will be charged to court next week as his church, located Izuoma-Afam in Oyigbo Local Government area has already been sealed.
This is coming after we reported that a man identified as Chijioke Paul Okeifufe, accused a pastor in one of the branches of the Assembly of God church, of shielding his son that impregnated a choir member of the church.
According to a Facebook post made by the man, the victim is a 19 year old girl and was a virgin before the boy who goes by the name Uche Rienne engaged her in sexual intercourse.
