Tragedy struck at Umunede in Ika Northeast Local Council of Delta State on Sunday, as a pastor, identified as Chikordi, allegedly killed his wife, Prophetess Chikordi of the Ancient of Days Healing Church.
The Guardian gathered that Chikordi, after he reportedly killed his wife, ran to Ekuoma town, a nearby community and jumped into a well where he was confirmed dead.
Sources said Chikordi killed his wife about 4:00a.m. on Sunday morning, but no cogent reason was given. He killed his wife and took his life as they are not alive to give details about the incident.
MEANWHILE, unknown gunmen have killed a commercial motorcyclist, while his bike was snatched at Ogbe Atuma in Kwale, Ndokwa West Local Council of the state.
A mediator in the community, Mr. Chuks Otuya, who disclosed this, said all motorcycle riders are now living in fear following daily attacks by unknown gunmen.
He said the community woke up and discovered the dead body of a motorcyclist in a pool of blood.
Otuya, however, appealed to commercial motorcyclists to be careful and mindful of their customers following the current security situation in the local government.
He also urged the state government to intervene in the daily killings of motorcyclists in the communities.
The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Edafe Bright, confirmed both incidents.
