Pastor kills, buries girl inside room over debt
A YOUTH pastor, Joseph Fekala, has allegedly killed a 25-year-old girl, Katrine Oguoh, at Okaka community in Yenagoa local government area and buried her in a room.
According to the police, the killer is not a Yahoo boy as earlier suspected. He is one of the youth pastors in charge of Sunday school section of the church.
It was gathered that the deceased who sold clothes had left home on Tuesday after a minor family misunderstanding and went to her friend’s house in Okaka before she went missing.
Some of her close friends said neighbours overheard her demanding an undisclosed amount in debt owed by her killer.
The deceased popularly referred to as Kate, an indigene of Sagbama and a graduate of Novena University in Delta State, was later discovered to be killed and buried by the suspect in his house.
Some residents of the Okaka community expressed concern over the alleged discovery of another skeleton in the room but such claim was dismissed by the police.
The father of the deceased, Sir Dick Oguoh who spoke to journalists at the Bayelsa State Police Command in Yenagoa, said the daughter had a misunderstanding and left the house to visit her girlfriend who happened to be a younger sister to the suspect residing at Okaka.
