The Imo State have arrested Pastor Delight Arinze Okorie of Watered Ground Ministry, Atta Nnenasa, for allegedly stealing his member’s Lexus jeep and attempting to murder her in the process.
The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, in the state, Andrew Enwerem, said that the pastor prophesied to his member, Miss Chioma Oleka that she was possessed by marine spirit which needed to be cast out to enable her get married.
He then lured her to Nwangele River for deliverance. While the deliverance was going on, he allegedly pushed her into the river for her to drown. As she refused to drown, Okorie allegedly went into the Jeep and brought out a cutlass, with which he inflicted severe injuries on her.
When Oleka fainted, Okorie thought that she had died and he immediately zoomed off in her jeep with the registration number: Rivers KPR 243 HF. Policemen attached to Nwangele division, on routine patrol, found her helpless body and took her to the hospital, where she was later revived.
Through intensive investigation and manhunt, Okorie was arrested with the jeep, at Orlu. Enwerem averred that Okorie has confessed to the crime, blaming the devil.
