Bishop shot dead in Warri

45

From EMMANUEL OGOIGBE,Warri

Pandemonium rocked the oil city of Warri in Delta State yesterday as a man described as pastor to the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Orubebe was shot dead by gunmen on Tuesday night. Sources said the cleric, identified as Bishop Slyvanus Keneri Kenikede was gunned down at about 11.30pm along Ughelli Agbarho Road.

Daily Sun, however, gathered that the cleric, a close confidant of Elder Orubebe, battled with life at a nearby hospital throughout Tuesday night but gave up the ghost in the early hours of Wednesday. The deceased, who is the founder and General Overseer of Voice of Faith Ministry, located in the Sokoh Estate area of Effurun was returning from one of the displaced persons’ camps after donating relief materials when he met his death. State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ikechukwu Aduba confirmed the report.

Aduba, who spoke through the Police Public Relations’s Officer, DSP Charles Muoka, said efforts had been stepped up to apprehend the fleeing suspects who carried out the dastardly act. When Daily Sun visited the church founded by the deceased, scores of the members who thronged the place wept profusely. A young man, who managed to speak on the sad event, described as unbelievable that the cleric was dead.

“We are yet to believe that our amiable daddy (Bishop) is no more. The people that killed him will not escape the judgment of God and will definitely burn in hell,”he said. A close friend of the deceased, Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin, described the incident as unfortunate and unpardonable.

“Killing a man of God is a grievous sin to be committed by the perpetrators. It is definitely a curse and heavy punishment from God Almighty,” said Fufeyin, who is the general overseer of Christ Mercyland Ministry based in Effurun, near Warri.

Fufeyin, who was on his way to Christian pilgrimage in the Holy Land, however, urged the family to take heart and look unto God our saviour and redeemer. Effort to reach the minister, Orubebe proved abortive but a family member who could not control her emotion, described the deceased as a humble and God fearing man, who participated fully in a prayer meeting held last two Saturdays at Orubebe’s church located at his home town,

Ogbogbabene in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State. Meanwhile, the remains of the deceased has been deposited at the Warri Central Hospital morgue. No fewer than six pastor’s have been killed in similar way while few others committed suicide.

    THIS IS SERIOUS. THERE SHALL BE NO MERCY ON THE KILLERS AT ALL. AS MERCIFUL AS GOD, THIS ONE IS UNPADONNALE. THEY WILL SOON GET THE WRAP INCLUDING THOSE WHO MIGHT HAVE SENT THEM.

  4. May his soul rest in peace…….church in nigeria is a big business and one can see the die- hard competition in it,so it may be related to unfulfill promises made ,properties taken away from others by force and finally the wives of fellow members taken by our so call men-of -god…….Men of God should learn to have fear of GOD in them and treat others as they wish others to do unto them.

    It is quite unfortunate for a servant of God to die this way, whatever be the case the assassines should respect God, though we don’t know the real men of God in todays society. May his soul rest in peace.

    SINCE OF END TIME BONE AGAIN CHRISTIANS PLEASE NOBODY SHOULD LOOK BACK WIL ARE HEADING TOWARDS THE END. SINNERS GIVE YOUR LIFE TO JESUS AS YOUR LORD.

  10. I sympathies with the family of the late Pastor or Bishop. But the truth remains that, the way some men God live there life this time is treble. Some of them deserves to die. Can you imagine someone taking his wife to a pastor for prayers because they are having problem with pregnancy. Instead of the pastor to pray for them and ask God to intervene and help the couple. The couple ask the man to go while he have another prayer session with the wife.
    The believing the so called man of God left. Then the pastor started having vision that the man is no suppose to be her husband.
    Do you know that till today the woman is living the the so called man of god. All the effort made by the man to bring his wife back prove abortive.
    Tomorrow if the shot the pastor dead all of us will be shouting, the killer must die the killer must suffer.
    This is assassination and it it never happens for nothing. .For someone to trail another person and dame the consequences if caught, I tell you my people, it must be a real deal. THIS IS NOT ROBBERY. Anyway, GOD know the best. I cannot judge but my point is that our so called pastors , bishops , kings and whatever title they give themselves should be very careful because, from what we are seeing I can hear the voice of our LORD JESUS echoing again. MY FATHER,S HOUSE OF WORSHIP HAS BECOME A DEN OF THIEVIES, STEALING IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.

  12. God knowns the best let no man judge the killers are not worst than paul the apostle before he repented . may his soul rest well

  14. HISTORY MUST BE TOLD.PETERS on

Oh my good God,hve mercy on them as they are abt perishing in SINS.

    Man of GOD RIP.

  15. May His soul rip, not bcs he is titled bishop or prpht but bcs de (brutal)klng of any person pains my heart. he as a prpht am sure he offers prphtic svics to peopl but dis one abt his life he or his coleagues nvr rcvd, it gives de sources and recipient of most of de prphcy/ prphts of 2day a big qustn mark. there is a huge tax free profit in de biznes of runing a church and de accompanying competitions 2 such bizneses are abundantly available nd bcs of de many uncalled persons who re into it killings nd retaliatory killings are abound. de reporter of dis story should dig deeper bcs crtnly there is more to it of which de least can be mistaken identity by de assasins

    God will sure bring to justice the enemies of his church the persecutors of his servants,for he that harms the servant of God bringet the wrath of God upon himself,i sympartise with the family of th late. God will surely fight. the wrath of God who shall stand???? nobdy

  18. To me.i pray that God Will have mercy on the killer and bring them to repentance.As for bishop, i only sympathise with his family and pray they accept the will of God because the bishop has nothing to loose if really he served his creator well. He has gone to a better place devoid of evil. God will surely forgive the killers just like saint paul who killed steven if only they would come to repentance. That’s the God i know. May his will be done in my life nd urs if u wish.

  19. People, usually, I would not comment on any issue arising from Nigeria,why bcos it makes no sense. However, I just wanna say that Nigerians are so blind and foolish. Waiting and looking for God in the wrong places. All these churches in that so called Nigeria are all fake, ans ao is their leaders too. If he was holy and clean like he claimed, he would have seen this dealth coming to him. Since Nigerians are quick at calling God and believing that any man that holds a bible is a man of God, and so should be respected and feared, then they should live with the results. as for me, I know they mean no good and they should die for deceiving and lying in the name of God, just to get rich quick. He who kills by the gun, also dies by the gun. This so called man, was not clean, and it is about time, Nigerians wake up to the reality that all this church thing na business, and nothing good can ever come out of them.

  20. Jesus said to d reporters,”if u did nt repent,u’ll likewise perish like dem .dis is d time we go bk to God blc d rapture is anytime 4rm now

  21. God Almighty said, he that sheds blood shall have his own blood shed by man; for in the image of God created he man. He that kills by the sword shall perish by the sword. He who is often advised and hardens his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed and without mercy. Bloody and deceitful men, shall not live out half their days. They are like some grass that grow on the field, that will soon be cut down. No murderer shall enter the kingdom of God. The evils that men do live with them. Visit: http://www.powertrumpeter.org.

  22. This signifies two things: the end time and a failed state. But the most annoying one is that any time the FOOL (GEJ) wants to make a statement he will say “let me assure you that everything will be put in place”. And we keep on wondering what those things could be. Is it unemployment, education, power supply, security etc which one? Man of God rest in peace, its the Lord’s doing.
