DPO Garba Talawai Impregnates 16-yr-old Housemaid, Kills Her In Katsina |RN

Decompsoing body of Rabi Abdullahi

by MARYAM HASSAN

A decomposing body of a 16-year-old housemaid allegedly killed and dumped in the bush by the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Mashi Local Government Area, Garba Talawai, has been found by the police.
The deceased teenager, Rabi Abdullahi, was a housegirl to the DPO’s girlfriend, Sadiya Danyaya.

DAILY NIGERIAN gathered that the DPO, who allegedly impregnated the girl, made unsuccessful efforts to abort the pregnancy that resulted to the death of the girl.

“When he realised that she died, the DPO sought the help of another policeman to dump the body in the bush,” said a source in the town who preferred not to be named.

Already the Katsina Police Commissioner, Sanusi Buba, has ordered the arrest and detention of Mr Talawai, a superintendent of police, after a preliminary report indicted him in the murder.

In a statement by the command’s spokesman, Gambo Isa, Rabi’s corpse was discovered at a bush path in Mashi on Thursday.
Mr Isa, a superintendent of police, noted that while at the hospital, some staff identified the corpse to be the one brought by the DPO and one policeman on Wednesday.

According to the spokesman, the DPO’s girlfriend had confirmed to the police that Rabi was her maid and that she had been missing since Wednesday — an incident she reported to the DPO.
Safiya told investigators that Rabi went missing after she rebuked her for carrying an unwanted pregnancy.

Mr Isa noted that both the DPO and his girlfriend, Safiya have been detained for a thorough investigation to determine their culpability in the murder.

He said a new Divisional Police Officer has already been posted to Mashi.
“The Commissioner of police, Katsina state Command, CP Sanusi Buba, psc, assures the parents of the deceased and indeed the good people of Katsina state that the command will not leave any stone unturned until justice is done in the matter,” the statement added.

Superfecundation/Superfetation: Twins From The Same Pregnancy With Different Fathers

RN file photo: Twins from separate biological fathers from the sam pregnancy

by Ike A. Offor

Superfecundation is fertilisation of two or more ova from the same cycle by sperms of separate acts of sexual intercourse leading to twin babies from different biological fathers. The term superfecundation is derived from the word fecund, meaning the capacity to produce offsprings. Superfetation in the other hand is having a second pregnancy from two separate ovulation that is usually weeks apart. The second ovulation can occur weeks or even months after the first ovulation resulitng in another pregnancy.

Many have asked this question and some have wondered how this phenomenon is feasible due to their very basic comprehension of medical cum biological science. So, the essence of this article is to help many who do not grasp that idea to have a very basic comprehension of how this phenomenon occurs.

Twins with different fathers can occur with heteroparental superfecundation and heteroparental superfetation. These two are separate but rare events in conception of twins whose fathers are not biologically related.

Superfecundation happens when there are twins from ovulation on the same day with two separate fathers. Two separate eggs were released and fertilization happens during the same menstrual cycle, usually within less than 24 hours of ovulation. The woman had sex with two different men within 5 days before or on the day of ovulation. 

Superfetation happens when a woman gets pregnant again after the implantation of one fetus. For this to happen the pregnant woman must ovulate after she is already pregnant and this egg must be fertilized by another sperm. This can occur weeks or even months after the first egg is fertilized, and the result is that one fetus is more advanced in pregnancy than the other. This is an extermely rare event in humans and has been reported only a few times. Superfetation can happen with the same father or different fathers (heteroparental).

Superfecundation or heterparental superfecundation is a word for twins with separate fathers. Each twin has a different biological father. For this to take place, two things have to happen.

  1. The mother or female has to ovulate twice (dizyogtic). Funny enough this is not so rare but do happen in 1 in 50-100 ovulations
  2. The mother or female has to have sexual intercourse with different men within a couple of days to one week before ovulation. This allows two separate sperms to fertilize two separate eggs.

Both of these events can occur by having sexual intercourse with separate men on the same day or different days, since sperm can survive for up to 5 days. Multiple ovulations take place in about 1% or (more) or often when one takes ovulation-inducing medication.

One thing is very clear from these phenomena, and that is that fact that a woman can get pregnant again though she is already pregnant. It sounds weird right? Yes, it sounds weird but this is what we have just treated here. Also, a woman can have babies of two different men at once and deliver them as twins.

So, do not cheat because you think you are already pregnant, because you could get pregnant again by your man or whoever else you cheated with. Also, do not have sex with different sexual partners within few days or even months from each other, you may get pregnant by sperms from both men.

Woman, 42 Gives Birth To Five Babies After 18 Years Of Wait In Kogi |The Republican News

A 42-year-old woman has been delivered of five babies (quintuplets) at Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Lokoja, Kogi, after 18 years of barrenness, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) who visited the woman and her babies at the hospital on Friday reports that both mother, Mrs Uchenna Okeigbo and her kids are in good condition.

Okeigbo, an indigene of Olokoro Amangbo Community, Umuahia South Local Government Area of Abia, gave birth to three boys and two girls on April 17 through a Caesarean Section.

Speaking with NAN, the woman expressed gratitude to God for the rare gift of five babies, saying that her wait for 18 years did not end in vain.

“It is not easy to have five children at once,” Okeigbo said.

She showered praises on her husband for standing by her.

NAN further reports that the quintuplets, three boys and two girls, weighed 1.3kg 1.6kg, 1.7kg, 1.8kg and 1.9kg, respectively.

However, the first baby, who weighed 1.3kg was still inside the incubator as at the time of NAN visit.

The father of the quintuplets, Mr James Okeigbo, 47, an employee of a private establishment, who was overwhelmed with joy, described the coming of the babies as the happiest moment of his life and his wife as well.

”I thank my wife for retaining her respect for me for this 18 years of childlessness without quarreling with me.

“I am also grateful to her family for standing by us,” Okeigbo said.

He, however, solicited for assistance from government and members of the public to ensure adequate care for the five children.

‘ As a good citizen of Nigeria, I am appealing to government to help us,” he said.

Dr Grace Ogoke, Consultant, Obstetrician and Gynecologist at FMC, Lokoja, who handled the delivery of the quintuplets, said she was very happy and gave glory to God for the feat.

She told NAN that she delivered the babies on Wednesday April 17, through a Caesarean Section (CS) at about, 11:45 pm, which coincidentally was her own wedding anniversary day.

”They are three boys and two girls, and they weighed 1.3kg, 1.6kg, 1.7kg, 1.8kg and 1.9kg, respectively. The three boys came first and the one that first came out has the least weight of 1.3kg.

” The baby is put under observation inside an incubator because he weighs less than 1.5 kg but the baby is active,” Ogoke explained.

According to her, the couple approached the FMC when they were seeking for the fruit of the womb with lots of investigations.

”After going through all their investigations, I saw that they would need to be assisted, that spontaneous pregnancy medically speaking might not be achievable, and I advised them to be assisted.

” The procedure for the assisted reproductive technology through In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) was successful, and the doctor referred them back to her for management of the pregnancy.

”I feel very happy and I give glory to God for seeing us through, because it was like all of us are pregnant during the pregnancy.

”This is my first time of taking delivery of quintuplets, the highest I have taken was three.

‘It is a relief and achievement for all of us and I thank God for that,” Ogoke said.

The Chief Medical Director of the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja, Dr Olatunde Alabi, said that exprienced gyneacologists and padsetricians were deployed to manage the woman from pregnancy to delivery.

Alabi said it was the first time quintuplets will be delivered at the hospital, saying that the management of the pregnancy and successful delivery of the babies underscored the quality of staff at the hospital and their dedication to duty.

The Chief Medical Director , however, pleaded for more support for the centre from the government and corporate organisations, especially in the areas of equipment and funding.

Teenager Impregnated By Own Father, Gives Birth In Benin, Seeks Help For Her Education |RN

 

Tony Osauzo, Benin

 

A 13-year-old girl who was impregnated by her father has given birth to a baby girl at Central Hospital in Benin City, the Edo State capital.

The teenage mother, who put to bed last Saturday, was said to be in Primary Six when her father put her in a family way and was taken into protective custody by the Edo State government.

She is the eldest daughter of her 42-year old father, Friday Moses, who hails from Cross River State but lives in Edo State.

The randy father, who was a commercial motorcyclist, reportedly started having sex with her daughter at the age of seven after the death of her mother.

Following the incident, an Edo State Family Court in October last year, sentenced the man to 14 years imprisonment with hard labour without an option of fine.

The teenage mother in a chat with journalists said she would like to continue with her education and become a medical doctor.

She disclosed that at the time she was impregnated by her father, she was yet to write her First School Leaving Certificate examination, adding that she would be happy if her education is supported by good-spirited individuals.Meanwhile, the Medical Director of the Benin Central Hospital, Dr. Philip Ugbodaga, has directed the management of the hospital to cancel the medical bills of the teenager.

Dr. Ugbodaga announced that the hospital was in collaboration with the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development to take proper care of the teenage mother and her baby, pointing out that subsequent assistance for the victim would come as the situation arises.   (The Sun)

SHOCKING: Mother, Two Teenage Twin Daughters Impregnated By Same Man |RN

Mother-teenage-twins-pregnant-for-same-man

“I almost fainted when I read the text. It was my daughter telling him ‘mummy has discovered I’m pregnant and you know the baby is your own, what do we do?’”

– Mother and her 2 teenage twin daughters pregnant for one man

Linus Oota

Life has become a conundrum for Janet Agbazu, 45 and her 16-year-old twin daughters who found themselves in a mess that beats even the absurdities of the Shakespearean drama. That the widow and her daughter are all pregnant is not the issue, but that they were all put in the family way by the same man.

 

What’s worse, the villain, a character called Pius Salihu was literally a member of the family––the mother’s live-in lover and for two years, a father figure to the 16-year-olds. Presently, the three women, forced by fate to play actors in this drama of the absurd, are covered with shame. As for the villain in the plot, he is free and abroad, at large.

Pius Salihu moved through the family like a hurricane and reduced the lives of the three women to ruins, leaving them with regrets and recrimination and a very big problem that is now a Gordian knot for the family.

The woman at the centre of the storm

Janet Agbazu, the central figure in this incident, hails from Doma Local Government Area of Nasarawa State. Alago by tribe, she was educated at Government Science Secondary School Lafia and married at 19.

Her husband, Sylvester Anangba, an Eggon from Lafia Local Government Area of the state, died in the 2013 Ombatse crisis that engulfed Nasarawa State.

Until his death, he ran a thriving transportation business. The holder of National Certificate of Education (NCE) from the College of Education Akwanga had met his wife at her secondary school when he did his teaching practice. He married her shortly after she wrote her final examination.

The couple had their first childbirth two years after their marriage and after the ‘double blessing’ of twins, they never had another child––not for lack of trying, though––until the tragic death of Anangba in 2013.

At the time of their father’s death in the Ombatse upheaval, the twins were already in secondary school.

But the family found themselves in a precarious position when relatives of their late breadwinner confiscated his properties––including a house and three cars as well as cash and other belongings.

Left in the lurch by her in-laws, the widow got a lifeline from the associates of her late husband who raised her some money so she could start doing business and therefore was able to sustain the education of her two daughters in public schools.

The family seemed to have found their feet. They were ‘gently rowing their boat down the stream of life’ until a wolf in sheep clothing found his way into their fold and capsized their boat. Today, mother and daughters are at a nadir.

Enter the villain

It was in 2016 the widow met Pius Salihu. An Igala from Kogi State, Salihu, 42, was in Nasarawa State to run a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that focused on women and health. They met at the Lafia township stadium where both of them went to watch a premier league match.

Their relationship started from there and in six months blossomed to the point whereby Salihu, who was squatting with a friend, was encouraged by Janet Agbazu to move into her rented two-bedroom apartment. They began cohabiting in one bedroom, leaving the other room to the twins.

In the next two years, Pius Salihu became the head of the family, playing the role to the letter. He bonded with the twins, constantly taking them out for relaxation. Unknown to their mother, once out of sight, he shed the toga of a father figure and transform into a lover.

As she told Saturday Sun later in an interview: “I was not always around due to the nature of my business. I always leave him at home with them, thinking they were in safe hands. I never for once thought he could do a thing like that.”

Agbazu thought Salihu used charm on the twins, saying: “How he got them so cheaply beats my imagination. Both of them took oaths not to expose the secret affairs. He got them cheap through the use of Babalawo (herbalist) charm.”

She raved further: “It is unthinkable and unbelievable. He was sleeping with me and my daughters at every opportunity. It was a bad thing. After he succeeded in impregnating me and the two of them, he ran away. I can’t find him.”

The whole truth, nothing but the truth

Saturday Sun got a hint of the development on August 13, 2018, and effort to interview the family brought the reporter in contact with Mr Clement Nuanga, an uncle to the beleaguered mother of the twins. Nuanga lives in Toto and the three victims had relocated to his house in their quest for a solution to their problem.

On August 14, the reporter travelled to Toto Local Government Area, a six-hour drive away from Lafia. The reporter had an interview with Janet Agbazu, who narrated the ugly, sad development to Saturday Sun in the presence of her uncle.

Her story: “I’m 45 years old. I lost my husband to the Ombatse crisis in 2013. I am yet to be fully remarried. I live on my own with my two daughters. My husband’s brothers kicked me out of their brother’s house as a widow. It was my late husband’s friends who assisted me with some cash to start a business where I can take care of my children and myself.

“In 2016, I went into a blind relationship with one Pius Salihu, an Igala man. I was blinded by love, deceived by his fine face. I did not bother asking him to take me to his place. Though three years younger than me, he appeared to be an honest and a humble man, I accommodated him and moved him out of his friend’s house to come and stay with me. I had not met a man sexually since the demise of my husband years back, that also contributed to him getting me so cheaply.

“My daughters were old enough to appreciate that I needed a man in my life. I also assumed they were responsible enough to see him as their father. I thought I could trust him, so I gave him all the liberty he deserved in my house. Unfortunately, I miscalculated. Unknown to me, while he was sleeping with me, at the same time, he was having affairs with my two daughters separately. These are small girls that were not exposed sexually. He enticed them with petty things and he got them easily. He was very close to them, so he got them cheaply by taking them out regularly. He also involved them deeply in the activities of the NGO he was running in the state. Sometimes, he would bring up a fake journey to Makurdi or Abuja. He would not travel with the two of them at the same time. Unknown to me, he was secretly enjoying my daughters right in my own house, and my daughters foolishly bought into his deceit”

The endgame

“Two weeks ago, the twins persistently complained of weakness of the body and malaria fever. They complained of stomach pains too. When I asked them when last they had their periods, I was shocked to hear from them that their menstrual flow ceased in May. Meanwhile, I was four-month pregnant for Pius, which is what I had always wanted, because I need a baby boy and the test shows my baby is a boy. The test at the hospital confirmed that Rose was two months pregnant and Mercy, a month pregnant.

“I was shocked because, at 16, my daughters who are students are not supposed to be pregnant. All my efforts, including threats, to force them to reveal the identity of those responsible for their pregnancies ended in vain.

“Back at home, I was outside the house trying to explain to Pius the shame the twins have caused when I heard his phone ringing inside the room. I went in to bring it for him, but the call ended just as I picked the phone, and a text message came in. I almost fainted when I read the text. It was from my daughter telling him that ‘mummy has discovered I’m pregnant and you know the baby is your own, what do we do?’

I saw another unread text from the other twin (Mercy): ‘I can’t keep this baby for you, what do we do.’

I asked Pius about the meaning of the text messages. He became restless and claimed to have received a phone call from his office. He left the house hastily.”

That was the last she saw of him till date.

“I only needed an explanation from him so that we can decide how to solve the problem. It was guilt that sent him on the run. Now, this is the third week. His phone numbers are switched off.”

In this latter part of the interview, Janet Agbazu relapsed into a monologue: “I am really confused, if God has not taken away my husband, I wouldn’t have found myself in this shame. How can somebody be so heartless as to sleep with me and my two daughters? This is an abomination.

I’m sure he used charms on them. I don’t even know his place. I am very confused. I am tired of life. How can somebody useless me and my daughters? God will not spare him wherever he is. How do I explain to people that my twins and I are pregnant with the same man and that he is nowhere to be found? My mind is blank. I looked at life and asked, was it really worth it? I hope for death every day. I never wished to see the next day.”

The reporter asked her: Do you intend to keep the three pregnancies?

Agbazu was confused. That is why she came to her uncle to help provide the way forward.

“Before the week runs out, we will arrive at a solution, but certainly my daughters can’t keep their pregnancy for the same man,” she said.

The family’s decision

While it is imperative to get the twins’ accounts of the incident, to shed light on why they got in between the sheet with a man they knew was their mother’s lover, their uncle, Mr Nuanga, however, would not permit the interview.

He has had a closed-door interrogation with them separately, he told Saturday Sun and his findings indicated that the present quagmire is “a mistake.”

“The sexual intercourse they had with him was as a result of ignorance and lack of sex education; if they know better, they won’t have done it,” said Nuanga.

They could not actually explain what came over them, he affirmed.

The twins, according to him, had no doubt Pius Salihu was responsible for their pregnancies.

“They even told me when, how and where they had met him severally, separately and unknown to each other,” said the troubled uncle.

He also avowed that Salihu perpetrated his crime with the aid of charms.

“Because they are also confused, it is not ordinary,” he insisted.

Clement Nuanga promised to consult some of his people for advice on how to handle the problem, though he hinted that the twins’ pregnancies could be aborted while their mother keeps her own.

“This is a serious matter that I cannot rush in taking a decision,” he said.

Efforts to reach Pius Salihu on phone failed. His phone numbers were switched off.  (The Sun)

            File Photo: Pregnant student

Five teachers of the Polytechnic Academic Staff Secondary School, Birnin Kebbi, have been sacked for impregnating an SS3 student of the school.

The News Agency of Nigeria learnt on Wednesday that the girl was also expelled from the school.

Sources confirmed that the decision to dismiss the five teachers followed the recommendation of a committee set up by the school to investigate the matter.

“The committee submitted the report on Monday and recommended that all the five teachers should be dismissed from service immediately.

“The management has dismissed the teachers and the victim was also expelled from the school.

“When the committee interrogated each of the teachers, they confessed that they had been having sexual relations with the victim separately. So, they were sacked immediately, based on the committee’s recommendations,” the source added.

NAN gathered that the affected teachers had forwarded an appeal of their dismissal to the school’s management board.

The principal of the school, Malam Muhammed Mahuta, was said to be in the hospital for weeks before the incident; but his deputy, Malam Oumar Woulandakoye, confirmed the development, adding that the affected teachers had filed an appeal against their dismissal.

“I advise you to wait till the final report of the School Board because I have just received their memo stating that they were going to sit on the matter tomorrow (Thursday),” he told NAN.

Sue, 43, and Noel, 47, who also have three grandchildren, wrote to their 47,000 followers on Instagram: “We can’t wait to welcome you into the family precious little one.”

In their YouTube video, Sue tells the camera as she’s in the car with some of her children: “We’re just on the way home from having a very special, lovely appointment.

“And I’m just wondering if anybody can guess where we’ve been. I bet you can.”

The clip then cuts to Sue at home as she shows off her baby bump.

© Credits: Youtube She tells the camera: “I hope you enjoy our gender reveal and, yes, I am pregnant.”

Sue and Noel, from Morecambe, Lancashire, then fire pink confetti into the air in the family’s back garden to reveal they’re expecting a girl.

Noel says later: “I can’t believe it, a girl. I think we’re in shock. We were not expecting it.”

The parents, whose family featured in the reality programme ’20 Kids And Counting’, say they do not claim any extra state benefits aside from the regular child benefit.

Sue and Noel have been having children for the better part of three decades.

They are already parents to Chris, 29, Sophie, 24, Chloe, 22, Jack, 21, Daniel, 19, Luke, 17, Millie, 16, Katie, 15, James, 14, Ellie, 13, Aimee, 12, Josh, 10, Max, nine, Tillie, eight, Oscar, six, Casper, five, Hallie, two, Phoebe, 22 months, and Archie, eight months.

After Archie was born, the couple said it was “strange” knowing he would be their last.

When the entire family appeared on ITV’ s This Morning in January, Sue said: “Archie is definitely going to be the last Radford baby.”

But eldest daughter Sophie, who has three kids herself, shook her head and claimed she “can’t see her mum stopping”.

Daughter Aimee, 11, admitted she felt “stressed” looking after her younger siblings.

Presenter Eamonn Holmes labelled dad Noel a “randy goat” as the stars of the Channel 4 documentary ’20 Kids and Counting’ claimed they were not going to have any more children.

The childhood sweethearts’ first child, Chris, was born when Sue was aged just 14.

Sue and Noel were both given up for adoption after they were born, and they decided to keep Chris and raise him as teenage parents.

They got married and had their second child, Sophie, when Sue was 17.

Sue and Noel face a monumental task each day just to feed, clothe and ferry about their huge brood.

The couple spends an estimated £30,000 a year of their own money bringing up their children – including birthdays with a budget of £100 per child and Christmas at £100 to £250 per child, it was previously reported.

In addition, they also have a holiday abroad each year.

Coffee Drinking During Pregnancy Increases Risk Of Obesity In Children – Scientists

By Appolonia Adeyemi

 

Scientists have warned mothers-to-be against drinking coffee, saying it may lead to obesity in their babies. According to the study findings published in ‘BMJ Open Journal,’ even one or two cups of coffee may increase the risk of obesity in the children. Coffee is one of the most preferred and loved caffeinated beverages around the world and many people all over the world take it.

There have been several scientific studies on the benefits and side-effects of coffee. Coffee has been shown to be a potent source of healthful antioxidants. Similarly, part of the previous studies showed that potential health benefits associated with drinking coffee include protection against type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, liver disease, liver cancer, and promoting a healthy heart.

However, this new study was warning mothers-to-be against drinking coffee, though it was not clear how prenatal coffee consumption is linked to child obesity The researchers looked at some 50,943 expectant mothers and those women who consumed caffeine during their pregnancy were monitored along with their babies until these kids were about eight years old.

“The study results stated that the number of kids of the age of five years who were overweight or obese was five percent higher in the group of women who had consumed the highest amount of coffee during their pregnancy period, as compared to the group of women who had the lowest coffee consumption,” the ‘NDTV’ reported.

Although the Swedish National Food Agency recommended restricting caffeine consumption to about three cups every day for pregnant women, the new study found that consuming even this stipulated amount of coffee was not completely safe as its findings showed that increased risk of obesity was present in the children of women who had stuck to this limit.  (New Telegraph)

Women Who Eat Lot Of Fast Food Have Problems With Conception – Scientific Study

By Appolonia Adeyemi

Pregnant-woman1

Scientists said women who eat a lot of fast food would experience a delay in conception. According to a study published in the peer-reviewed journal ‘Human Reproduction,’ people who eat fast food such as burgers, pizza and deep-fried chicken four or more times a week compared to those who never or rarely touched the stuff took an extra month to become pregnant.

The study showed that good diet increased the chances of conception. Prof. Claire Roberts, from the University of Adelaide, Australia, who led the study, said: “These findings show that eating a good quality diet that includes fruit and minimising fast food consumption improves fertility and reduces the time it takes to get pregnant.”

In a previous study, researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health also linked poor diet with infertility. In the previous study, researchers worked for eight years with 17,544 women who did not have infertility history and were trying to become pregnant. The goal of the long-term study was to find the link between the ovulatory disorder and certain food choices and lifestyle.

The scientists after paying attention to lifestyle factors including the consumption of monounsaturated fats, vegetable protein, carbohydrates with low glycemic index and other nutrients, found that increased popularity of ‘fertility diets’ may be positively related to lowering the risk of ovulatory disorder and consequent infertility. In the new study, the researchers quizzed 5,598 women in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland about what they had eaten in the month before they became pregnant with their first child.

Similarly, they asked the women how often they ate fruits, green leafy vegetables and fish, as well as foods, such as burgers, pizza, fried chicken and chips, from fast food outlets.

The study found those who ate fast food four or more times a week took nearly a month longer to get pregnant than those who never or rarely ate.    (New Telegraph)

Shocking: Pastor Impregnates, Kills Chorister, A Lady, An Infant, Others Who Knew About It

Pastor-impregnates-kills-lady-others
The Rivers State Police Command has arrested the Senior Pastor of Altar of Grace Ministries, Chidiebere Okoroafor, for allegedly killing three people, including two pregnant women and an infant near Izuom market, Oyigbo.

Preliminary investigation revealed that Pastor Okoroafor had impregnated Olumma Onwaagba, who until her death was a member of the church choir.

It was gathered that Okoroafor allegedly pressured Olumma to terminate the pregnancy but she refused. Her refusal led to her death and that of those who knew about the scandal.

While speaking to newsmen, the suspect said: “I don’t know what came over me. It was the handiwork of the devil. I am just begging for forgiveness from the families.”

According to the police, “We discovered that the Pastor was having an amorous affair with one of the deceased, Uloma. The Pastor manipulated the two women on the 10th of December by first luring Concilia to an uncompleted building and killed her there.

After strangulating the late Concilia, he then took Uloma with Christabel in a tricycle to an isolated farm at Igberu road and gruesomely murdered her in the surrounding overgrown bush with the baby strapped to her back.She was suffocated with the wrapper she used in strapping the baby to her back.” The bodies of the deceased have since been recovered.
