A Warri-based pastor identified as Richard Ifeanyi Obi has reportedly died in his sleep while on a mission to perform a deliverance on a family in Anambra State.
Bittertruth Media gathered that the embattled cleric died in his sleep hours before the exercise.
Pastor Obi was invited to No. 5 Onuorah Street Amaenyi Awka in Anambra State from Warri, Delta State before the sad incident.
A member of the family while reacting to the occurrence said:
“Somebody recommended him to us as a very powerful man of God. We invited him to a family deliverance because our family has been having some issues recently.
“We were surprised to see the lifeless body of the pastor the next morning which should be the day for the deliverance.
“Everybody is now afraid because nobody can explain this. It’s a rude shock.”
He was later rushed to the hospital where he was certified dead by a medical doctor. His corpse has been deposited at Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu Teaching Hospital Mortuary for autopsy.
Meanwhile, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Haruna Mohammed, who confirmed the incident said the matter is under investigation.
