The police in Anambra State have reportedly launched a manhunt for a charismatic pastor, identified as Everitus, for allegedly beating his wife, Fidelia, to death. It was learnt that Everitus, who is also an ex-boxer attacked his wife during a disagreement at their home in Uli, in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Fidelia had demanded money for Christmas food from the husband when an argument ensued between them. As the argument degenerated, the retired boxer was alleged to have beaten the wife to a pulp. The matter was said to have been reported to the police at the Ihiala division as some youths vented their anger on the suspect’s country house in Amamputu village, in the same council area.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Nkiruka Nwode, however, said the report had yet to get to her office. An eyewitness, who do not want to be identified said that the mob set Everitus’ country house ablaze after the incident occurred on boxing day.
