PHOTO:Pastor Sleeps With WIFE Simultaneously Attempts To Use Her For Rituals

Physinews A clergy man identified as Uchenna Joseph has

been nabbed by officers of the Ilisan Remo

police division over reports that he tried to use

his prophetess wife for ritual purposes.

Vanguard reports that the woman, Patience

Ohelimo, from Abakaliki in Ebonyi state Nigeria,

accused Pastor Joseph of conniving with some

unknown persons to torture, gang-rape and

attempt to sacrifice her for ritual purpose.

The woman who is presently being

rehabilitated at a private clinic in Ogun state

said the incident took place in Port Harcourt,

the Rivers state capital where she had gone

from her Ikorodu abode after agreeing to marry

the man.

“I was a petty trader in Ikorodu town in Lagos

before my plans to get married, while my

husband was a full time pastor.

“We were to have our wedding introduction in

2014 and were planning for a church wedding

when I got pregnant, which put the wedding

plans on hold.

“In the course of our relationship, I expended all

my earnings but this was not in vain as I gave

birth to a boy in February 2016.

“Three months after, my husband suggested

we should visit his friend in Port Harcourt to

raise fund for my business. So we left our base

in Ogun State and during our three months

stay, I became a prophetess and also assisted

in evangelism, but on one fateful day, my

husband conspired with his friends to sacrifice

me for ritual purposes.

“My refusal earned me incarceration as they

tortured and gang-raped me. This took place

for a number of days until I reached my sister

through a text message and she came to my


“They separated me from my son and were

about tying me to the ceiling fan when my

sister arrived the one-room church. My

wedding gown and other items were kept for

two years as he is yet to complete the dowry.

“I have spent all my earnings on this marriage

which has almost cost me my life and I will

never return to that home,” Mrs Joseph was

quoted to have said.

While denying the allegations by his wife, the

clergyman stated that she has been

psychologically unwell since they relocated to

Rivers state.

He explained that, “She used to see visions

and loved evangelism but one day, she was on

evangelism field with my friend’s relative when

she was spiritually attacked and she started

exhibiting strange behaviour.

“But my mistake was that I did not inform her

parents believing it was a minor issue until she

became violent and we had to seek spiritual

help by inviting some pastors to conduct

deliverance for her.

“She however sent a message to her elder

sister and I was misunderstood. The scars on

her body were as a result of the violent

situation she found herself.

“How can I connive with others to kill the

mother of my baby? Her family was just being

harsh on me for failure to complete the dowry

because out of N100,000, I only paid


Although he was initially arrested, he has been

granted bail while the police officers continue

with their investigations into the matter.

The Ogun state police command says it has

apprehended Wole and his friend for being in

possession of human parts.

Vanguard reports that the duo were arrested at

Ijebu, Idi-aro area of Abeokuta while policemen

attached to Oke Itoku Division, led by the DPO,

CSP Abeni Farinre, were on patrol.

The Police Public Relations in the state,

Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement, said the

suspects took to their heels with a leather bag

on sighting policemen and they were hotly

chased and arrested.
