The teenagers of the community rushed to check the pastor’s compound, led by their president, Mr Johnson, who is also a “community police officer,” and were stunned to find the woman’s body buried in a shallow grave. The pastor was given over to the cops by the teenagers.

The deceased woman worked as a minor merchant in the local market, selling pastries.

“I am just coming from the (police) station now, he just opened up that he killed the woman about seven days ago,” Mr Johnson said.

 

“From what the children said, they (the pastor and the wife) had been having issues and sometimes he would say in front of the children that he would kill the wife and nothing would happen.

 

“On this particular day, the man chased the children away when he and the wife started fighting,” he added.

The Clan Head of Okon, Akpabio Inyang, has visited the scene of the incident.

 

When contacted, the Divisional Police Officer in Eket, Sunday Digha, refused to comment on the incident.

 

He said the reporter should speak with the police spokesperson in the state.

 

The police spokesperson, Odiko MacDon, did not respond to calls from our reporter as of the time of filing this report.
