Cultists Kill A Pastor ‘Joseph Iheme’, Pregnant Woman
Cultists have killed a pastor, a pregnant woman and two other persons in the Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State.
An investigation revealed that the pastor identified as Joseph Iheme and one Kingsley Owhondahad went fishing when the assailants attacked them.
While Iheme was shot to death, Owhondahad was whisked away but his dead body was later found.
The pregnant teenager, identified as Ada Amah, and another female, Mini Elizabeth, both from Rumuoro village, in Ogbakiri, were allegedly kidnapped by the gunmen before they were killed in the bush.
However, one Godknows Iheme, who happened to be the son of the pastor saw how the hoodlums killed his father.
He escaped being lynched by the cultists who pursued him after sensing that he had seen them while committing the murder.
It was gathered that the cultists removed the unborn baby from the pregnant teenager and went away with it.
It was learnt that Amah and Elizabeth were at the river to fetch water when the hoodlums struck.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Rivers State Police Command, Mr Nnamdi Omoni, said only one person was killed in the area.
He said that the police had begun an investigation into the case as he assured that the killers would be apprehended.
