Pastor and General-Overseer of the Ancient of Days Healing Church reportedly took the prophetess’s life serving in the same miracle centre.
The General-Overseer, who’s known as Chikordi, was said to have killed himself moments later he ended the life of his wife, the prophetess.
The alleged murder happened in Umunede in Ika North East LGA of DeltaState. A report further noted that the deceased suspect would kill himself by jumping into a well with the mindset that church members were already suspicious of his crime.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, DSP Edafe Bright, confirmed the incident but said he was not aware that the man was a pastor, adding that investigations into the matter are ongoing.
However, while the evidence against the pastor remains somewhat unclear at the time of filing this report, as it was gathered that the alleged killer ran from the site of the crime and navigated his way to the village.
On Sunday, at about 4:00 pm, the deceased suspect escaped to Ekwuma, his hometown, to serve as a hideout pending when investigations on his wife’s death would close.
It was uncertain whether Chikordi was later driven by guilt to have committed suicide while residing in his village or another motive behind his demise.
