Mrs. Chinyere Uchechukwu, wife of the Pastor of Power of Pentecostal Church, Okposi Achara in Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State has been shot by unknown gunmen suspected to cultists.
The gunmen reportedly invaded the church last week and shot the woman on her head when the church was holding a prayer session. The invasion immediately ended service as worshippers scampered for safety.
But some elders of the church and youths, however, assisted the Pastor to take his wife to a nearby hospital for medical attention.
The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Loveth Odah, confirmed the incident and said that the Commissioner of Police, Philip Sule, had ordered an investigation into the shooting.
