Death by hanging; Cleric to die for murder of choir mistress, others


Rivers State High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, yesterday, convicted and sentenced the General Overseer of the Alter of Solution and Healing Assembly in Oyigbo Local Council, Pastor Chidiebere Okoroafor to death by hanging for killing three people, including his choir mistress, he allegedly impregnated.

In his judgment, Justice S. O. Benson said the evidence and confessional statement by Pastor Okoroafor proved that he murdered his choir mistress, Orlunma Nwagba, her friend, Chigozie Ezenwa alongside her daughter, Cresabel Ezenwa.

Justice Benson held that the prosecution proved the case of murder against Okoroafor and ordered that the pastor should die by hanging.

The judge also ruled that the convict should be hanged on his neck until he dies or be injected with lethal injection,which will also kill him faster.

The Rivers State Police Command had on December 17, 2018, arrested Pastor Okoroafor, following an alarm raised by the husband of the late Chigozie Ezenwa over the killing of the three victims on December 11, 2018, in two different locations in Oyigbo Local Council.
