Court sentenced married woman and her lover to death by hanging in BeninA Benin High Court has sentenced a housewife Mrs Enebong Isonguyo and her lover Prince Udoka Ukachukwu reportedly to be a pastor to death by hanging for the killing of her husband.

Mrs Enebong Isonguyo’s husband before his death, was a senior staff of Nigerian National Petroleum Company NNPC, Benin city, Engineer Victor Gabriel Isonguyo in December 2013.

According to report, the court presided over by Hon. Justice Imadegbelo was also told by police prosecutor how some millions of naira and landed properties belonging to the deceased were transferred to the said pastor.

The murder of Engineer Victor Gabriel Isonguyo was carried out by the convicts in order to cover up the pregnancy accusation by the deceased who was then asking questions about the woman’s pregnancy while he was away.

The court also heard how the pastor was told by the woman to wait on the route of her husband to work and stop him for a ride. The plan paid off as the man eventually stopped and gave the pastor a ride along Sapele road in Benin city. During the journey, the said pastor then brought out a sharp object and smashed him on his neck before opening the petrol tank where he sipped out fuel and burnt him beyond recognition.

Watch as the pastor and woman were sentenced to death by hanging.
