Perilous Time: Wife Stabbed Her Husband-Pastor In The Neck, Doused Him With Fuel And Set Him On Fire

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:" 1 Peter 5:8.

Below is the story of a woman who killed her Pastor-husband, just read and learn from it.

Delta State high court, sitting in Effurun has sentenced a woman, Mrs. Mary Attah, to death for killing her husband. Mr Attah was found guilty as charged after the court found her culpable for the murder of her husband, Pastor Darlington Attah, July 6, 2013 at Effurun.

Justice E. Oritsejafor held that the persecution, led by Mr Patrick Mikado has proved beyond reasonable the essential ingredients of the offense of murder against the accused.

Rejecting the defense of the convict, who had pledged self-defense, justice Oritsejafor held: "I must add that the evidence before this court do not and cannot support the please of self-defense in favor of the accused person. I agree with the learned assistant director for the prosecution that their is just no possible defense to avail the accused person when she stabbed her deceased husband in the neck with a knife🔪 and thereafter doused him with fuel before she struck the match on him, was to kill the deceased or do him grievous bodily harm. The law is trite that a man intends the natural consequences of his act.
"From the evidence before this court and in particular the extra-judicial statement of the accused person, Exhibit A and the evidence of PW1 and PW2 which corroborate and is consistent with the facts contained in the said extra-judicial statement Exhibit A, I hold that the prosecution proved beyond reasonable doubt that the accused person Murdered her deceased husband on or about the 6th day of July, 2012, and I find the accused person guilty of the murder of Pastor Darlington Attah as charged. Accused person is accordingly, hereby convicted of the offense of murder.

"The sentence of this court upon you, Mary Attah is death by hanging by the neck till you be dead and may the Lord have mercy on your soul".

The court was further told that the accused was infuriated by the telephone call at a time they were having a 'nice time' which prompted her to rush to the kitchen, collected a knife and pepper which she rubbed on her husband's face to immobilize him before stabbing him in the neck. Not satisfied, she doused the husband who was already weak as a result of excessive bleeding fuel and set him ablaze. He latter gave up the ghost at the Warriors Central Hospital.

This story was an excerpt from the DAILY SUN Nigerian News paper of Tuesday, July 26, 2016. Volume 13 NO. 3457. From Emmanuel Ogoigbe

Matthew 24:10 "And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come."

It's unfortunate how the devil is destroying many homes in these perilous times because of ignorance of Satan devices. As Christians, we need to be at alert every moment. Satan is our adversary and enemy. He doesn't love us and as well we shouldn't love him(satan). We should make sure we close every open door that will give him the chance to strike. This is end time and we must gird up our loins and put on Jesus and his whole amour in order to defeat the devil.

Romans 13:11-14 "And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. 13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. 14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof".
