 The usual calm of the Umu­choko community in Ngor Okpala council Area of Imo State was exchanged for horror over the weekend following the alleged gruesome murder of a nurse, Miss Calis­ta Nzubechukwu Uzoigwe, by a pastor and his daughter over a phone battery.

The pastor, popularly known as ‘Esom Jehovah’, who is the presid­ing pastor of Assemblies of God Church, Umuohiagu III, Umuan­yamele village had engaged with the deceased in a brawl before his first daughter known as “The Pee” stabbed her at the back and she died on the spot.

The late Callista, 23 who was from Ok­panku community in Aninri area of Enugu State had allegedly ac­cused pastor’s daughter of steal­ing her battery and charger.

Confirming the incident, a co-tenant to the pastor and medi­cal doctor in charge of Graceland Hospital, Umuchoko Umuohiagu told Sunday Sun that Miss Cal­lista died immediately she was stabbed but was rushed to Holy Rosary Hospital, Emekuku in Owerri North LGA of the state where she was confirmed dead and deposited in the hospital morgue.

The medical doctor who dis­closed that the deceased was undergoing training in his clinic stated that he was not at the scene when the tragic incident oc­curred, however recalled that he met the deceased in a pool of her blood about 2:30 pm that fateful day on return to the hospital fol­lowing a distress call from other nurses who witnessed it all.

According to an eyewitness who preferred anonymity the trouble had ensued between the deceased and pastor’s family when the former confronted her assailant over a missing phone battery and charger.

She said that a boy in the com­pound had given the deceased a phone battery and charger to as­sist him recharge it but that Pas­tor Esom Jehovah’s first daughter allegedly stole the items which were later found in her custody five day later when the initial search for the items had ended.

The pastor, it was gathered had reacted angrily to the allega­tion against his daughter and had confronted the deceased which resulted in a brawl and the man of God mercilessly beat up de­ceased. As he did this his daughter went and picked a kitchen knife and stuck it deep into Callista’s back while her father held the nurse down.

A source revealed that the knife pierced through the back to her chest and she bled profusely, and eventually died.
