Speaking on the circumstance surrounding his death, Anambra state police spokesman,  Haruna Mohammed, the state Commissioner of Police John Abang has ordered for a discreet investigation to ascertain circumstances surrounding the incident.

“One Ikechukwu Uchendu ‘m’ of No. 5 Onuorah Street Amaenyi Awka reported at the Central Police Station Awka that one Pastor Richard Ifeanyi Obi ‘m’ who came from Warri to perform family prayers in his house was found lying lifeless in the room he slept.

  1. Zeal without wisdom will lead to death. Did he go for the family ‘deliverance’ alone? These new generation, money-seeking pastors never seize to amaze me. They want to deliver people when they are obviously in need of deliverance! They eat and Lodge in the same family they went to deliver! They think that the story of the devil and the seven sons of Sceva was put in the Bible for fun! I hope other half-baked, itenerant self-imposed prayer warriors will hear and learn! You don’t venture into the devil’s territory without preparation. He, indeed, is the accuser of the BRETHREN.

  2. When you fail to ask before eating, you may equally die without showing any sign of sickness. The so called pastors should be fortified with the Holy spirit before venturing into the devil’s den. I don’t know why they are always blinded by the amount of money they would benefit from the “deliverance business”.
