His wife, Roseline Nwuguru attended my church. It was from there that I started having love affair with her. When the love was getting deep we found out that the deceased was disturbing us and we have to plan for him,” Odorimo said.
“I took deceased’s cutlass and cut him on the head. His wife also hit him on the head with a big stick. He died on the spot and we ran away to Benue State, but men of the local vigilance group arrested us and handed us over to the police.”
The wife of the deceased, Roseline Nwuguru, who hails from Ado Local Government Area of Benue State and has seven kids for her husband narrating how herself and the pastor killed him said:
