Woman, her Pastor sentenced to death by hanging for husband’s murder
A Benin High Court presided by Justice Imadegbelo has sentenced to death by hanging a housewife and her pastor for the murder of Engr Victor Gabriel Isonguyo.
The woman, Eniobong Isonguyo, was the wife of the deceased while the second convict, Pastor Udoka Ukachukwu, was the head of their church.
The pastor, the court was told, had arranged with the woman and waited on her husband’s way to work and stopped him for a ride.
The plan paid off as the man eventually stopped and gave the pastor a ride along Sapele Road in Benin City.
The deceased was killed with a sharp object by the said pastor who punctured his neck and then opened the car’s petrol tank from where he sipped out fuel and set the hapless man ablaze in the car on agreement with his wife who was then pregnant for him.
Some millions of naira and landed properties belonging to the deceased were also transferred to the said pastor.
