A Nigerian wife and her pastor lover were sentenced to death for her husband’s murder in 2013 said he was a staff member of Nigerian National Petroleum Company NNPC, Benin, Edo State.
The deceased is said to have been killed to cover up an allegation of pregnancy against his wife, Eniobong Isonguyo, while he was away. It was further alleged that the wife transferred to the Pastor identified as Udoka Ukachukwu millions of naira and landed properties belonging to the deceased.
“The deceased’s wife told the pastor to wait on the route of her husband to work and ask him for a ride. The plan paid off as the man eventually stopped and gave the pastor a ride along Sapele road Benin. During the journey, the said pastor brought out a sharp object and hit him on his neck before opening the petrol tank sipped out fuel and burnt him beyond recognition.”
The wife who was sentenced to death by hanging alongside her Pastor lover was reportedly 4 months pregnant at the time of the incident and gave birth in prison before her conviction. Late Engr. Victor Gabriel Isonguyo was killed with a sharp object in his car by the Pastor, who then set the car ablaze.
Eniobong who however denied having extramarital affairs with the Pastor said:
“When I did not see my husband I ran to the Pastor because we have known for a very long time. I took my husband’s new car to him to sow as a seed in the church so that my husband will be found. I told him to take it to the church but I didn’t know that he went and changed the number plates.
Before their conviction, the police prosecutor disclosed that the duo confessed to being lovers and plotted the death of the NPDC staff and father of three.
