A Pentecostal pastor in Delta state, Pastor Greg Sagie, has been killed in his home by one of his church members.

Vanguard reported that the 60-year-old pastor was attacked with a machete. His church was not identified.

The incident happened around 12 noon on Thursday at the pipeline area of MTN Road in Sapele, Delta State.

The pastor was reported to be resting in his bedroom when the suspect barged into his flat and threatened his two children, aged eight and 11, who were in the sitting room. The terrified children ran out of the house and raised an alarm for help.

A source, who claimed to be part of those who took Pastor Sagie remains to the mortuary and his neighbour said the area was isolated and had few houses.

He said they heard the children screaming that someone was inside, attacking their father with a machete.

“We ran out and saw the attacker. He was a young man in his 20s. He threatened us that if we dared to climb the storey building to meet him, he would kill us. He then jumped from the storey building and fled,” the source who simply identified herself as Nneka stated.

The source added that the children identified the attacker as a member of their church.

“The children told us he was a member of their church and that they recognize him. They even described where he lived,” the source said.

Pastor Sagie was said to have sustained severe cuts on his head and died on the way to the hospital. “He breathed his last on the way to the hospital where his car broke down,” another neighbour named Isaac stated.

His church members, who were in tears, described him as a humble and dedicated man of God who preached peace and love.

However, the police are now on the trail of the suspect.
