BREAKING: Popular Pastor ‘Strangles’ Wife To Death Over School Fees

A pastor of a new generation church, Shalom Mercy Ministry, located in Aluu, Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State, Chris Simon Amadi, has been arrested over the alleged murder of his 30-year-old wife, Solution Amadi.

It was gathered that the incident happened on Tuesday in their home at Mbodo Community, Aluu, after a disagreement ensued between the couple over the management of their school business.

The school, Solution International School, was reportedly established by the late Mrs. Solution Amadi before her marriage to the pastor in 2012.

Trouble was said to have started when the deceased confronted her husband over unjustly driving away pupils owning school fees without checking in on her.

Odinaka Opurum, the elder brother to the deceased, said his now sister felt embarrassed when affected parents started calling to complain about her husband’s action.

“The husband went to the school (Tuesday November, 10) and started driving pupils away for 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 strangle her to the point she collapsed and became unconscious. When he saw she was no longer responding, he rushed her to a clinic close to their house, the clinic confirmed her dead and referred him to University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH).

“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, ”Mr Opurum said.

He also disclosed that the incident was not the first time the pastor would beat his sister. He said it has been recurring and his sister, out of love and the position of marriage counsellor which she occupied in church, decided to endure in order not to set a bad example for young girls.

The marriage between the pastor and the deceased, which was solemnized in 2012, was blessed with four children, two boys and two girls.
