How mother of three and Pastor lover murdered husband
indigene of Akwa Ibom state and Deputy Manager at the Nigeria
Petroleum Development (NPDC) Company, Benin City. The deceased
allegedly murdered by his wife Mrs Enebong Victor and her Pastor boy
friend, Prince Udoka Nkanchukwu who were paraded by the Edo state
Police Commissioner, Funso Adebanjo last Tuesday.
Saturday Vanguard learnt that the deceased who was recently promoted
to the position of Deputy Manager, was due to retire next year. It was
learnt that the decease and his wife had been having issues with the
paternity of their children after the deceased suspected the wife was
having an extra marital affair with the Pastor.
The deceased was said to have visited home to complain to both his
family and that of his wife after suspecting that the current
pregnancy which is being carried by the wife was not from him.
Consequently, the families resolved that a DNA would be conducted
after giving birth to the child. Saturday Vanguard further learnt that
it was this arrangement that infuriated the wife that led her into
plotting to murder her husband with her lover Pastor.
Friday October 22, 2013, It was learnt that the Pastor whom Vanguard
gathered has been a close family friend, called the deceased on
telephone and told him he wanted to see him. The deceased was said to
have drove to somewhere along Sapele road, to meet with the Pastor. On
getting there, it was gathered that the Pastor entered the vehicle and
stabbed the deceased twice. As if that was not enough, he drove the
car to hidden destination along Sapele road and set both the car and
the deceased car ablaze.
On Monday 25, the wife was said to have gone to the office to report
that the husband was missing. But apparently after visiting the
husband's office, she went straight to the bank and withdrew N4milion
from the husband's account.
The wife of the deceased also went to the police to report the
incident. However, staff of the NDDC was informed that people observed
a burnt car and somebody inside it somewhere along Sapele Road, they
quickly rushed down and found it was that of Mr Nsongbunyo. The
shocked NPDC staff went back to the deceased wife at their home to
inform her of the situation but found her sitting comfortably at home
watching African Magic. However, detectives intensified search for the
deceased new car which was given to him by the company following his
promotion. The car, a Volkswagen Passat car was tracked to a compound
at Ekenwan road Benin City.
Vanguard learnt that a lady was accosted by detectives in the compound
and she confessed that the car was packed by a Pastor that lives in
the compound. When the Pastor came out, detectives observed burns in
his left hand and his face. The Pastor disclosed that one of his
daughters in the church sowed a seed with the car. He subsequently
took them to the residence of the deceased where it was discovered
that it was the deceased wife.
The duo were arrested immediately and according to the state Police
commissioner, have confessed to have committed the dastard act.
According to Adebanjo, "what happened was that the Pastor called the
deceased to come and meet him somewhere along Sapele Road, when the
deceased got there the Pastor stabbed him twice and then burnt the
The woman gave the husband's new car to the Pastor and we found the
car with the Pastor. A 2013 model of Volkswagen car. It is a very sad
and wicked act. After killing the man in his vehicle he set the car
ablaze. The Pastor changed the plate number of the car and put a fake
one after he murdered the man. It was when we saw the burnt in his
hand that we knew that he was involved. Though he has confessed and
after now we will take them to court. They both confessed that they
are lovers but I believe that it was wicked on their part to have
plotted the killing of the man.
Mrs Isonguyo who denied she was having extra marital affairs with the
Pastor, narrated that "when I did not see my husband I ran to the
Pastor because we have known for a very long time. I took my husband's
new car to him to sow a seed in the church so that my husband will be
found. I told him to take it to the church but I don't know that he
went and changed the plate numbers.I had to ask him to pray harder
because I love my husband and I don't want anything to happen to him.
I did not kill my husband because I loved him. I brought the car and
told him to take it to his church and sow a seed that I want God to
answer my prayers so that my husband will come back. I told him to
take it to the church because even if it is a house I would have taken
it to sow a seed for my husband to come back. I gave it to him but
what I did not know was that he went to change the plate number and
other papers that have to do with the car.
I was lying down in the house at about 11pm that day when the police
came and arrested me". Asked if she is having extra marital affair
with the Pastor, she asserted " God forbid, I have not had any affair
with the Pastor. The Pastor has been a close family friend and we
always give him cloths to go and share in the orphanages. And even
when I travelled with my husband we gave him our ATM card so that he
can take care of our poultry and whatever that is needed to be done.
He has been very honest to us so I don't know what is happening".
She further denied having quarrel with the late husband, asserting
that "Until I came to this place nobody told me that my husband is
dead. I pray that God should intervene because I have never committed
any crime before in my life. I want God to intervene in this matter. I
have three boys for my husband, 17, 16 and 15 years".
In his confession, Pastor Ukachukwu whom Vanguard learnt has not been
to their church, Land of Evidence Church along Airport Road Benin
City, said he kicked against bringing the car to him by the deceased
wife but decided to accept it when she insisted that she wanted to sow
a seed. According to him "I have been a family Pastor and sometimes I
pick their children from school.
She called me and said that she wanted to give me a car to sow a seed
in my church. When she even brought the car I asked her why she should
bring the car in the middle of this crisis but she said her husband is
worth more than any material thing that she can make any sacrifice for
her husband. I changed the plate number because any gift for Pastors
you have to change it in order to be able to drive the car". CP
Adebanjo said the duo would be charged to court for murder.
