A Methodist Church pastor at Ago, Otukpa in Ogbadibo Local Council of Benue State, Rev. Michael Ejeh, was on Monday morning, found dead in a bush. According to his wife, Charity Ejeh, the bush was just few meters away from a church he’d visited the previous day for prayers and deliverance services.
Mrs. Ejeh said that her deceased husband, who suffered from hypertension, had gone to a deliverance ministry led by Prophet Moses Ujah at Odebe, where his body was found.
An informer in the area, who pleaded anonymity, told The Guardian, which first broke the story that Rev. Ejeh was allegedly found tied to a tree in a bush some metres away from Prophet Ujah’s church where he’d gone to the bush to ease himself.
The Guardian also gathered that Rev. Ejeh, after the prayers on the fateful night had requested to sleep in Odeba, as it was late for him to return to his base, Ago. Ujah reportedly accepted to host the late reverend and directed two of his pastors to keep the priest’s company through the night at the ministry’s office.
The remains of the late priest have been deposited at a mortuary in Otukpa while the police have arrested Ujah for questioning.
Meanwhile, the Benue Police public relations officer, Philip Agena, said he hasn’t been briefed on the incident.
