Pastor Mike Agbahiwe, an indigene of Orodo in
Mbaitoli Local Government of Imo State whose
wife was killed in Kano by Muslim Fanatics has,
for the first time since the incident happened,
come back to his home state. He met with
Governor Rochas Okorocha at the Government
House in Owerri yesterday with his relations and
explained that contrary to the widely read report
that his wife, Mrs. Bridget Agbahiwe was
beheaded, she was beaten to death, not


He told the governor details of what transpired
and how the wife was heartlessly and
gruesomely murdered in his presence by the
Muslim Fanatics and he survived the attack by
the grace of God, otherwise, he would have also
been killed because the aim of their attackers
was to kill him and the wife.
His story below…
“One Muslim man called Dauda came to my
wife’s shop and was washing his leg infront of
the shop. My wife told the man to move up a
little so that she could arrange her goods, but
the man refused. Instead, the man started to
molest her, and gripped her neck. In trying to
free herself from the grip, Dauda started
shouting Alakuba, and angry mob quickly
“When we saw that danger was about to occur,
we ran and took refuge in the house of a
prominent Alhaji, who is a leader in the area.
The Alhaji did all he could to calm the mob
down. They refused and called him an infidel,
and broke into his house and killed my wife in
front of me. And if not the quick intervention of
the Police who immediately used teargas to
disperse them, they would have also killed me.
But they destroyed everything I had both the
shop, the car and so on.”
He further stated, “The head of my wife was
never beheaded. But the hitting was on her head
and with hard objects. The body of my wife is in
the mortuary with the head. She was not
beheaded as it was widely reported.”
In his response to the pathetic story of Pastor
Agbahiwe, Governor Okorocha described Late
Mrs. Bridget Agbahiwe as a heroine because it
took more than one hundred men and women to
bring her down, describing the gruesome murder
of the woman as highly provocative, barbaric
and the highest wickedness of mankind, and told
Pastor Agbahiwe that the Imo State government
would share with him and the family in this
moment of grief and pains.
Governor Okorocha said, “The problem is not the
death of Mrs. Agbahiwe but the manner of which
she was killed. In this country, we must learn to
live peacefully. No religion supports killing.
Anyone who kills in the name of religion is an
evil worshipper, and should never mention the
name of God. The cold blooded murder of Mrs.
Agbahiwe should be seen as a sacrifice for the
unity of the country”.
The governor further stressed, “She died as a
martyr. Imo State Government will be with the
family in this period of grief, and we shall set up
a committee to assist in making sure that she is
given a befitting burial. She died a heroine as far
as we are concerned, as it took more than one
hundred attackers to kill her. Those who killed
the woman are cowards. The chairman of the
traditional rulers’ council in the state would lead
a delegation to the Emir of Kano to make sure
that such ugly incident will never reoccur
anywhere in the country.”
Governor Okorocha also stated, “We are
monitoring the situation and the reports reaching
me is that five people have been arrested and
taken to court, and finally remanded in custody
in connection with the murder of Mrs. Bridget
Agbahiwe. This is good enough. It means the
Kano State Government and the Police
Command in Kano are working to live upto their
assurances to me that they would fish out the
killers and make them face the full wrath of the
The governor urged Pastor Agbahiwe not to
question God over the killing of the wife, but to
bear the whole incident with fortitude.
