This young gospel singer, identified as Yvonne Omoarebokhae, has been found dead in a hotel room in Benin, the Edo State capital. The incident occurred last Friday in the hotel located in GRA Benin.
It was learnt that the lady, who’s married with a 3-year-old child, was allegedly carried away when the ‘Pastor’ sent her messages on Facebook with promises of helping her perform in many big events.
Her husband has cried out, insisting he must know what killed his wife…
Yvonne, who is a graduate of the Benson Idahosa University, was said to have lodged in the hotel along with the pastor, whose name was given as Apostle Psalm Okpe.
According to the husband, Mr Odion, his wife met Apostle Okpe on Facebook and after a period of chatting, the pastor, last Thursday, invited her over for a “performance” in Asaba, Warri and Benin.
The last time he spoke with his wife was 10am on Friday, she told him that she would soon be home.
But to his surprise, at about 9:30pm on the same Friday, the police used his late wife’s phone number to call him that he should report at Airport Road police station in Benin.
The words of the husband: “I waited for more than two hours at the police station until the police asked me to go home but I insisted on knowing the whereabouts of my wife.
“The DPO later told me that my wife was picked at a hotel in the GRA and rushed to the Benin Central hospital where she was confirmed dead. I am yet to see the corpse of my wife to know what happened and who is responsible for her death. We have a three-year old baby at home.”
Edo State police commissioner, Chris Ezike, confirmed the death of the young lady, adding that the pastor has been arrested.
The Police boss said, “It is under investigation. The man is married and the woman is married. Not until a post mortem is conducted, we cannot conclude what happened. I have asked the matter to be transferred to the State CID.”
One fact that is hidden in this saga is that: this married lady and her husband live in Benin, yet she went and lodge with a so called ‘Pastor’ in a hotel in the same Benin. We are waiting for the whole truth.
