Pastor to be Hanged for Impregnating, Killing Choir Member in Rivers

The General Overseer of a church in Owegbo Local Government Area of Rivers State, Chidebere Okorafor, has been sentenced to death.

He was convicted and sentenced to death by hanging by the State High Court sitting in Port Harcourt on Monday.

Okorafor was convicted of killing 3 people, including the choirmaster of his church, from which he became pregnant.

The judge, Justice S. O. Benson, in his judgment said that the evidence and the confession of Okoroafor proved that he murdered the mistress of the choir, Orlunma Nwagba, her friend, Chigozie Ezenwa together with her daughter, Cresabel Ezenwa.

Justice Benson ruled that the priest should be executed by hanging or lethal injection.

Rivers State Police Command officials arrested Pastor Okoroafor on December 17, 2018, after the late Ezenwa’s husband raised the alarm.

The victims were killed by the pastor on December 11, 2018 at two different locations in a community in Oyigbo Local Government Area.
