According to the INK, before the ugly incident, Pastor Abraham as he is popularly known is said to have been the family prayer gladiator and had been a regular caller, praying for the prosperity of the family as the husband is said to be palm cones dealer which he brings from Rivers State to sell in the University town. On the day of the incident, THE INK reporter gathered that the man of God had phoned the husband to his lover and allegedly prophesied that danger abound in his house and that the family should not sleep there.
A neighbour who spoke in confidence said that the man was on business trip in Rivers State when Pastor Abraham gave the prophecy on phone and could only connect the wife through someone he had phoned in the neighbourhood as her number was not reachable, adding that, it was when the messenger left the compound that night that he saw the man of God going to the woman to deliver the same message.
However, it was further learnt that it took more than a reasonable length of time for Pastor Abraham to deliver the message such that it attracted the curiosity of some youths who had earlier suspected the man of God’s visit to the family.
Those youths, THE INK understands were said to have decided to confirm their fears and the two were caught in the act naked, smooching, romancing and penetrating themselves using different forms ranging from missionary mission style, doggy style, squatting and walling.
THE INK learnt that the youths swiftly besieged the lovers’ nest and descended heavily on the man of God and beat him to a pulp. An eye witness who interacted with our reporter said that Pastor Abraham was stripped and dragged to Obong Ntak Village Hall where his lover was hurriedly sent for.
Pastor Abraham and the woman had since admitted to the crime. The Pastor was said to have abandoned his wife in labour pains at Government Health Centre, Akai Udoe before embarking on the shameful trip, about 10km away.
The father of Pastor Abraham who is the Presiding Apostle of the Church in Etim Ekpo is said to have surfaced at the Village Council and pleaded for an option of fine. The Council is said to have fined the lover Pastor the sum of two hundred thousand naira (N200, 000), a goat, tubers of yam, drinks among other things. Apostle Abraham also pleaded with the Council not to report the matter to the Police for fear of negative publicity.
As at the time of filing this report, Pastor Abraham was said to have been admitted in an intensive care unit of an undisclosed health facility where his health was said to be deteriorating. Many who spoke with THE INK expressed disappointment in the attitude of some Pastors who have debased the tenets of the Church as the moral compass of the society.
