Police In Rivers State Arraigns Pastor Who Killed His Pregnant Girlfriend
The Federation of International Women Lawyers, FIDA have applied to take over the prosecution of Pastor Chidiebere Okoafor who is facing murder charge before Justice C.D Green of the High Court in Port Harcourt.
Pastor Okoroafor who is the founder of Altar of Solution Church, Izuoma in Afam, Oyigbo Local Government Area of Rivers state allegedly murdered his pregnant mistress, Concila Ezeawa and Uloma Onweagba and her daughter Christabel.
The pastor had since pleaded not guilty to the allegations saying they were fabricated.
The matter which was slated for hearing today could however not continue as FIDA applies to take over the matter from the police.
Our correspondent Precious Ahiakwo reports that the defence counsel, Innocent Ekwu objected to the application but presiding Judge, Justice C.D Green adjourned the matter to September 26 for hearing.
Counsel to the Police, Godday Amadi told correspondent that they were ready to open their case today with their first witness but will now have to handover to FIDA in the circumstance.
