Pastor allegedly kills pregnant girlfriend, 9-month-old baby in Rivers


The Rivers State Police Command has paraded one Pastor Chidiebere Okoroafor of the Alter of Solution Church in Oyigbo, for allegedly killing three persons, including a nine-month-old baby.

Pastor Okoroafor was accused of gruesomely murdering a pregnant Ada Concilia Ezeawa, Uloma Onweagbo and nine months old Christabel Joseph.

Deputy Commissioner of Police, Cyril Okoro, said the police had been investigating the matter, which was first reported last December.

DCP Okoro told newsmen that investigation revealed that Pastor Okoroafor killed his victims in a bid to cover up pregnancy scandal with one of his church choristers, Uloma Onweagbo, who is twenty five years old.

The DCP said the victims were strangled and killed with their bodies buried in shallow graves in different locations of Oyigbo Local Government area of Rivers state.

He said the suspect will be charged to court as next week, adding that his church, located Izuoma-Afam in Oyigbo Local Government area has been sealed.

According to the DCP, “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 yo her back.”

The suspect, Pastor Okoroafor, who was reluctant to respond to questions put to him by newsmen, said he was tempted by the devil.

“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.

The command appealed to members of the public to always report any suspicious movement in their vicinity.
