Vanguard reports that the cleric, who was in charge of Oko branch of the church in Benin, was shot in the early hours of Tuesday by armed robbers, who raided parts of the community.
She said: “My husband woke me up at 2.30a.m., when the armed robbers were in the next compound. Before we knew it, they had started breaking our window.
“I cannot recall what happened and why he went into the room. Suddenly, I heard his cry and when I got there, I found him in a pool of his blood.”
The body has been deposited in the mortuary, while police have visited the scene of the incident and have commenced investigations.
