One Michael Chidozie, alleged to be a pastor in one of the Pentecostal churches in Port Harcourt has been arrested and detained by the Police in Rivers State for allegedly beating his 32-year-old wife, Ufuoma Chidozie to death.

The victim Mrs Ufuoma Chidozie, a mother of three children,(5,7 and 10), was allegedly beaten to death in the wee hours of on Tuesday 5th, February 2024 in their residence in Agip axis of Mile 4, Port Harcourt.
Some friends of the deceased alleged that her husband was in the habit of beating her every day even without provocation.

Close neighbors claim that whenever Chidozie wants to physically abuse his late wife, he will lock her inside their apartment and pummel her to his satisfaction in order not to attract the attention of neighbors.

It was not clear what may have led to the last incident which led to the death of the mother of three boys.

Our source disclosed that after Ufuoma died as a result of injuries she sustained from the alleged physical assault by Chidozie, the suspect fled after calling the brother of the deceased, to come to the house that there is an emergency.

But it was gathered that the suspect was arrested on Wednesday morning by police personnel attached to Agip Police Division, Mile 4, Port Harcourt, following credible intelligence.

The Public Relations Officer of Rivers State Police Command, SP Grace Iringe-Koko confirmed the arrest of Chidozie.
