Persons who witnessed the wedding including the chief of the clan also said they were part of the traditional marriage. • That the pastor instructed Blessing Uduoye not to tell her parents as a doctrine of the church is a mis-information. We have nothing against Rapheal Uduoye and his family as we preach love and tolerance. However, we expected him to have channeled his grievance to the appropriate quarter instead of engaging in character defamation. • The groom is a member of Immeasurable grace mission Inc, Agbor in Delta state; he is from obodo-ukwu in the same local government as the bride. The pastor of the groom wrote a letter to the pastor of Fishers of men charismatic church isiokpo, confirming that the groom is eligible to marry and he has fulfilled all the wedding requirement according to their church system.

Abia man butchers his wife then commits suicide by setting himself ablaze

A man committed suicide yesterday in Abia State by setting himself on fire after butchering his wife.

The man, identified only as Ejike, had a misunderstanding with his wife so he used a machete to hack her in Ezere, in the Isiukwuato local government area of Abia state.

Locals helped rescue Ejike’s wife during the attack and they rushed her to the hospital where her condition is really critical.

Meanwhile, Ejike, fearing that his wife may not survive the attack, went into his car where there was a container of fuel, poured it on himself after a moment of sitting there deep in thought, and set himself on fire with a match.

Efforts by passersby to douse the flames and rescue him were unsuccessful.
