Gospel singer found dead in hotel after accepting Pastor’s Facebook invitation

13 April 2016, 15:31

Lagos - A married gospel singer has reportedly died in a hotel room after a pastor she met on Facebook invited her for a music performance, reports Pulse.ng

The  gospel singer, Yvonne Omoarebokhae,  was found dead in a hotel in the Benin GRA, owned by a former lawmaker in the Edo State House of Assembly, where she allegedly lodged with a Lagos State based Pastor, Apostle Psalm Okpe, the General Overseer of the Fresh Oil Ministry.

According to the deceased husband, Odion Omoarebokhae, his wife met Apostle Okpe on Facebook and after several months of chatting, he invited her last week Thursday to perform at a program  in Warri, Delta State, with the promise that she would also perform at different program he has coming up in Asaba and Benin City.

The DPO later told that my wife was picked at a hotel in the GRA and rushed to the Benin Central Hospital where she was confirmed dead.

The State Commissioner of Police, Chris Ezike, in a statement, said his men have commenced investigations into the cause of the woman's death as well as the fact that the pastor has been arrested.
