BREAKING: Popular Nigerian Pastor’s Wife Shot Dead By Suspected Assassins
Unknown gunmen have shot and killed Mrs. Peace Chinyereugo, wife of the Pastor of God’s Vineyard of Grace Dominion Assembly, Rev. Samuel Chinyereugo, in Benin, Edo State.
The incident occurred at about 7.36 pm on Monday, 14 August, 2023, at the premises of the church, located at No. 101, Upper Lawani Street, New Benin, Benin City.
It was gathered that the cleric and his wife who went to visit a friend at the GRA, were trailed by their attackers to the church.
But on getting close to his church, the assailants were said to have overtaken and blocked their victim’s vehicle.
Eyewitnesses related that three armed men alighted from their vehicle and opened fire on the pastor, his wife and his yet to-be-named assistant.
The trio were rushed to an undisclosed hospital for treatment, where the pastor’s wife was later confirmed dead by the doctor.
Edo police Command spokesperson, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, who confirmed the killings said no arrest has been made so far.
He, however, said that the Command has commenced full-scale investigation to unmask and prosecute the perpetrators.
