A former chemistry teacher who sometime back became a pastor was shot dead in his house in the presence of his wife by suspected armed robbers in Edo State on Tuesday.
Pastor Godfrey Agbonwaneten of Evidence of the Gospel Church was killed after armed robbers broke into his house at Okhunmwun in Ovia North-East Local Government Area in the early hours, robbed the household and fired at the pastor(pictured with his wife).
Narrating the ugly incident that claimed her husband’s life, Mrs. Jane Agbonwaneten said the robbers gained entry into their apartment by removing the burglary and the window louvers.
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.”
