Pastor Kills Wife, Buries Corpse In Shallow Grave

The incident happened at a village called Ikot Ataku, Okon, in Eket Local Government Area. The pastor has been identified as Chris Enoch, the founder of Omega Word Global Ministries.

He is from State, ’s South-east.

The youth president of Okon Clan, Effiong Johnson told PREMIUM TIMES, Wednesday night, that Mr Enoch killed the wife, Patience, seven days ago and buried her corpse in the shallow grave inside their gated compound where they have been living with their five children.

The eldest child is 15 years old.

Mr Enoch’s church has been operating inside the same compound which is rented.

The community became suspicious when the pastor’s children complained to neighbours that they had not seen their mother for days after she had a quarrel with their dad.

The youths of the community, led by their president, Mr Johnson, is also a ‘community police officer’, went to search the pastor’s compound and were shocked to discover the woman’s corpse buried in a shallow grave. The youths handed over the pastor to the police.

The slain woman was a petty trader used to sell pastries in the local market.
