Following the death of Mr Victor Isonguyo, a Deputy Manager at the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC), his wife and her pastor lover are cooling their heels in the custody of the Edo State Command of the Nigeria Police Force.
Mrs Enobong Isonguyo is believed to have conspired with her pastor, Udoka Nkwanchukwu who doubles as her secret lover to murder her husband.
According to the Commissioner of Police, Edo State, Mr Foluso Adebanjo, the secret lovers planned the death of the late NPDC Manager.
Adebanjo disclosed that “what happened was that the pastor invited the deceased to meet him somewhere along Sapele Road, Benin City. When the deceased got there, the pastor stabbed him twice and then burnt the car. The woman gave the husband’s new car to the pastor and we found the car with the pastor. A 2013 model Volkswagen car. It is a very sad and wicked act.”
The police also made it known that after killing the man in the vehicle; the pastor set the car ablaze. Meanwhile, the pastor also went on to change the plate number of the car he was given putting a fake one in place of the one there. Adebanjo stated that the man has confessed and he and his lover will be taken to court soon. “It was when we saw the burn on his hand that we knew that he was involved in the burning of the car.”
While speaking to newsmen however, Mrs Isonguyo denied having extra marital affairs with the pastor. She said “when I did not see my husband, I ran to the pastor because we have known each other for a very long time. I took my husband’s new car to sow a seed in the church so that my husband will be found. I told him to take it to the church but I did not know that he went and changed the plate number.”
When she was queried on why she did not alert the police on her missing husband but went to the pastor first, Mrs Isonguyo said “I had to ask him to pray harder because I love my husband and I don’t want anything to happen to him. I did not kill my husband, because I love him.”
