The pastor allegedly killed his wife in Rivers.
Policemen in Rivers State have arrested Pastor Chris Simon Amadi of Shalom Mercy Ministry in Aluu, Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State over the death of his wife.
It was gathered that the man of God allegedly strangled his wife to death over a disagreement.
The sad incident happened at their home at Mbodo Community after a disagreement over school fees payment in his wife’s school.
Solution’s elder brother, Odinaka Opurum, said his now deceased sister felt embarrassed when the affected parents started calling to complain about her husband’s action.
“The husband went to the school (Tuesday November, 9) and started driving pupils away for allegedly failing to pay school fees. When parents now called the wife to ask why she drove their kids away even after paying, she appealed they should not be angry that she will find out from her husband.
“When she got to the house, they started quarreling again and the husband started beating her. He then started to strangled her to the point when she collapsed and became unconscious.
“When he saw that she was no longer breathing, he rushed her to a clinic close to their house, the clinic confirmed her dead and referred him to UPTH to be sure. Instead of taking her to UPTH as they advised, he took her to the house, covered her with wrapper, packed some clothes in a bag, locked all the doors and attempted to run away.”
Her brother also said, the incident was not the first time the Amadi would beat his sister. He said it has been recurring and his sister out of love and as the marriage Counselor in their church, decided to endure in order not to set a bad example for young girls.
Her family is currently seeking justice.
The pastor has been married to the deceased since 2012 and the marriage is blessed with four children, two boys and two girls.
