A High Court sitting in Port Harcourt has sentenced a senior pastor of the Alter of Solution Church, Chidiebere Okoroafor, to death for murdering his mistress and two other persons in Oyigbo, Rivers state.

Justice S. Benson, who presided over the case, in his judgment in the murder trial delivered, on Monday, said the evidence and confessional statement by Pastor Okoroafor proved he murdered his church’s choir mistress after getting her pregnant and also killed her friend, Chigozie Ezenwa, with her daughter, Christabel Ezenwa.

Justice Benson said the prosecution proved the case of murder against Pastor Okoroafor, ordering that he be killed by hanging his neck until he is dead or be injected with lethal injection, which also kills faster.

In 2018, Okoroafor had, a bid to hide his alleged amorous relationship with miss Ada Concilia Ezeawa, murdered her and two other persons,Uluoma Onweagba, nine-month-old Christabel Joseph and an unborn child.
