A pastor has landed in serious trouble after prophesying the location of a dead woman’s body in Imo state.

According to a report by Punch Metro, there was panic at Alaiyiama, Obollo community, in the Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State, following the beheading of a 68-year-old woman, Mrs Augustina Inebere.

This is even as the police arrested the Pastor-in-Charge of Arm of the Lord Church, Goddy Onyeho, for allegedly giving what the police called a suspicious prophecy.

The cousin of the deceased woman, Anthony Njoku, told Punch Metro on Thursday that her corpse was found 17 days after she went missing.

Njoku said the sexagenarian was found along a bush path at Mbara Alaenyi, adding that she was beheaded and her bowel emptied.

He said, “Mrs. Augustina Inebere’s headless body was discovered on February 19 after a two-week search.”

The immediate elder brother of the deceased, Alexander Obiagu, told PUNCH Metro that four persons, including Pastor Onyeho, were arrested in connection with the murder.

The septuagenarian told Punch Metro that the pastor had prophesied that the corpse of his sister would be found at a particular point.

He added that the body was eventually found at the place mentioned by the cleric.

The state police spokesperson, Orlando Ikeokwu, confirmed the incident.

On the arrest of the pastor, he said, “The pastor prophesied to the family that they would find the woman at a particular point, whether dead or alive.

“It was at that point that the lifeless body of the woman was found, beheaded and with an emptied bowel.”

Ikeokwu said the police were investigating the case.

The Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, Lagos, on Saturday confirmed the death of a COVID-19 patient in the hospital.

Prof. Chris Bode, LUTH Chief Medical Director, made this known in statement issued by Prof. Wasiu Adeyemo, Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC) of LUTH, on his behalf.

According to him, a man was brought unconscious to LUTH Emergency late in the evening of Wednesday, April 2 by his friend.

“Although, they denied any history of recent travel, his presentation strongly suggested Covid-19.

“He was handled professionally by the Infectious Diseases Consultant and his team without unduly exposing LUTH staff to danger. He died a few hours later.

“Further investigations later revealed he had earlier performed a test at Yaba soon after he travelled back to Nigeria from Holland and the test was positive.

“He was a known diabetic hypertensive patient. He also had a kidney transplant for chronic kidney disease and was on immunosuppressant drugs.

“The corpse has since been handed over to the appropriate Unit of the Lagos State Ministry of Health for safe burial according to international best practices.

“Our Department of Community Medicine has moved swiftly to trace, follow-up and and assist gallant staff who managed the patient,” Bode said.

He said that LUTH management implored all members of staff to continue observing strict standard protocols, while handling all patients as medical personnel are especially at increased risk from such undisclosed exposure.

“All efforts are being made to ensure the availability of all required items to continue the effective management of such cases that come to LUTH.

“Efforts are also in top gear to complete the isolation facility in LUTH for management of any possible spillover from the Yaba Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH), if the surge in patients’ load continues,” Bode said.
