Men of the Ogun State Police command have arrested a-45-year-old man, Pastor Daniel Samuel for stabbing his wife over her refusal to attend church activities. Daniel, an Apostolic Church pastor was said to have used a cutlass to inflict deep cuts on his wife, Mrs Patient Samuel in her neck in Ogun State.
Funny enough, after Pastor Daniel attacked his wife with the cutlass, he alerted neighbours and lied that his wife was matcheted by some unknown men, and pleaded with them to help him take her to the hospital.
The offence of his 42-year-old wife was that she decided to take care of her personal work that morning, due to pressure, but the pastor insisted that she must leave the work and come with him to church.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed the incident. He said, “The pastor is with us, he initially lied to the police that his wife was attacked by some men, but later confessed after interrogation. He will soon be charged to court for false information and wounding.”
, our correspondent observed that the pastor’s wife could only utter some incoherent words when she was asked questions.
The Consultant of Orthopaedics and Trauma at the FMC, Doctor Ojeblenu, who is in charge of the patient, said the woman would remain under close observation because of the depth of the injury.
