A Nigerian man from Delta state, Mr Ikedi Peter has killed his wife before committing suicide.
 
The man before his death was a resident of Ekwuoma community in Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta State.
 
It was gathered that he allegedly committed suicide after slaughtering his wife, Prophetess Chikodi Ikedi Peter who is said to be the General Overseer of Ancient of Days Healing Church in the same area.
 
The incident which has thrown members of the community into confusion and mourning reportedly occurred early morning of Sunday, December 5, 2021.
 
A few hours after slitting his wife’s throat in the early morning of that day, Peter was said to have escaped to his own village where he killed himself by jumping into a well.
 
The couple left behind their only surviving child identified as Emmanuel.
 
According to the report by Ika Weekly Newspaper, a local tabloid based at Agbor in Delta State, the father of the late Prophetess, Daniel Ani lamented the sudden death of his daughter, saying that it was a huge loss to him and the entire family.
 
Mr Ani also confirmed that when he visited the dead couple a day before the sad incident, they were actually having some misunderstanding that was amicably resolved.
 
But he claimed that before he left their house on that Saturday, his daughter and her husband were happy.
 
Ani, who hails from Enugu State however said the next day at about 4 a:m, some persons came to his house and asked him to follow them to the church.
 
He said though he was surprised at the invitation at such ungodly hour, he followed them to the church where he was confronted with slaughtered remains of his daughter.
 
In his words, “Upon my arrival at the church, I went direct to my daughter’s room and saw her lifeless body on her bed, her throat had already been slit”.

“I think my daughter was asleep when the husband slit her throat, if not, he would not have been able to commit the evil”.
 
On his part, the traditional ruler of Umunede Kingdom, HRM Dr. Ezeagwu Ezenwali 1 JP said the death of Prophetess Chikodi is a big blow to the entire Kingdom of Umunede, saying that the deceased was a good woman.
 
He disclosed that he and his family, as well as residents of Umunede Kingdom, are mourning Prophetess Chikodi, noting that she was God-sent to the people.
 
The royal father noted that the deceased distributed bags of rice and other food materials to many when Covid-19 was at its peak last year.
 
He added that has snatched a good woman from the people of Umunede and others, just as he prayed God to accept her soul.
 
Just like the traditional ruler, Prophetess Chikodi who died at the age of 44, was described by many as a good, caring, and God-fearing woman who was always there for her members and others who came her way.
 
It was gathered that her mother,from Ogbeisere, Ileje Quarters, Umunede, died after giving birth to her.
 
Following reports of the incident, many people in the community, including members of the church gathered at Kifa Hospital where the remains of the Prophetess was taken to demanding to see her dead body.
 
But their demand was turned down as the body had already been deposited in the mortuary.
 
Members of the church and sympathizers also gathered in groups discussing the sad incident in tears.
 
It was learnt that late Prophetess Chikodi was to open a new branch of the church at another community, Igbodo on that fateful day of her death.
 
The incident had left many confused as no one could ascertain what transpired between the couple.
 
At the time of filing this report the Delta Police Command has not officially reacted to double tragedy.
