A randy Pastor in a village of Akpabuyo Local Government Area (LGA), of Cross River State, identified as Pastor Oliver Akpan, has been sent to the great beyond by a married woman he tried to rape. It all happened during an alleged spiritual deliverance session, he purportedly conducted for her.
According to an eye witness’s account, Pastor Akpan, married with six children, had long been suspected to be sleeping with his church members, both married and single, but he met his waterloo in the woman identified as Ekamma, who is also married with two children.
As the story goes, Ekamma had gone to the pastor to seek his help over some spiritual attack she was facing and Pastor Akpan had recommended a three day dry fasting for the woman to be carried out in the church and on the final day, there would be a spiritual bath to ward off the evil spirit and bad luck.
After going through the fast, the pastor led the hungry woman to a stream to have the spiritual bath but he had other ideas in mind as he was said to have told the woman that part of the bath included having sex with her but when she refused, he attempted to forcefully have carnal knowledge of the woman. As the woman tried to free herself, she allegedly picked up a sharp stick and stabbed him in the stomach, before she ran to the village to alert other residents.
By the time they got to the spot, the wounded pastor had lost consciousness as he bled profusely. He was rushed to a hospital where doctors confirmed he died before he was brought in.
The woman, Ekamma was initially arrested by the police but was released on bail while investigations are still on going.
