The Pastor who was having an affair with late Isonguyo’s wife was arrested when the vehicle of the deceased was tracked to him.

Interrogated by the police, he could not explain how he got burnt injuries in his hands.

The High Court judge, Justice G. Imadegbelo heard that the deceased was killed by a sharp object in his car by the said pastor and set ablaze in the car on agreement with his wife who was then pregnant for the pastor.

During trial, the court also heard how some millions of naira and landed properties belonging to the deceased were transferred to the said pastor.

Witnesses testified that the murder was carried out by the convicts to cover up the pregnancy accusation by the deceased who insisted on knowing how his wife became pregnant while he was away.

Justice Imadegbelo sentenced the two persons to death by hanging.
