December 15, 2013 – Nigerian Pastor Stabbed Wife For Missing Church Service; Daniel Samuel Arrested In Abeokuta Ogun State

Doctors at the federal Medical Centre(FMC), Idi – Abba, Abeokuta, are battling to revive 42 years old Mrs Patience Samuel who had slipped into coma following severe cut inflicted on her at the neck.

Patience, wood and charcoal vendor at Redemption Camp, was attacked with matchet by her Pastor husband, Daniel Samuel, for shunning fasting, prayer and other programmes going on at the Apostolic Church, Ode – Remo area of the state, where he is a pastor.

The Consultant of Orthopaedics and Trauma, FMC, Dr Ojeblenu, who is attending to Patience’s case, said the woman would still be on close observation because of the degree of injury inflicted as well as the likely psychological trauma on account of shock from the attack.

The Nation learnt that Daniel Samuel had cause to complain severally to his in-laws over his wife’s attitude of placing high premium on her business at the expense of spiritual development, threatening to make his wife rue terribly, her nonchalant disposition to church matters.

The husband who could not put up any longer with his wife attitude was said to have left the church Sunday and hurried to where the wife carries out her business, and argument ensued while demanding explanation for shunning church.

In a fit of anger, the pastor allegedly dashed to a closet, pulled a cutlass and struck her at the neck.

The Pastor on sensing that his wife had passed out, alerted neighbours, shouting that his wife has been attacked by unknown persons and that they should help in rushing her to the hospital.

Upon getting to FMC, he was asked to obtain police covering note because of the severity of the injury, but while trying to obtain Police report deceptively, he was arrested and detained at the Owode-Egaba Divisional Police headquarters.

The Ogun State Command Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Olumuyiwa Adejobi confirmed the arrest of the pastor, told reporters that he would be charged for false information and wounding.

Adejobi said: “the Pastor is with us, he initially lied to the Police that the wife was attacked by some men but later confessed after interrogation. As such he will soon be charged to court for false information and wounding.”

  1. People like you are the ones giving Christianity a bad name. why can’t u pray to God instead of taking judgement into your hands
    Please justice must prevail in this matter
    Mama Patience please get well

  2. now dt i have developed boldness to comment on issues first I will like to say Pastor Samuel went too far.
    The bible say be angry and sin not.
    why did u allow the devil to force u pls men of God should act what they preach

  3. I wonder what he preach to his congregation and the type of bible he have been reading,maybe he thinks that cutting off the finger that will prevent you from going to heaven is a physical cutting.When you are done with jail if you are found guilty try the butcher business.sorry to the woman in question for the treatment you got,I pray you get better soon to point out who cut you,if you know you can’t keep up with been a pastor’s wife and all the church activities that comes with it in place of Sunday business please marry a teacher not him.I wish both of you well and complete adult knowledge and thinking.

  4. Though wht d pastor did is very wrong but i want to say he is still human, i believe he is hot-tempered, and before he could control himself d damage had been done. i want to appeal to women not to provoke their husbands. GOd says the husband is the head, give him that respect. men hate to be disobeyed. but God has given the women a kind of power that can tame any kind of man if only we will put it to good use. men are like children wh need attention, and once u agree to go into a life time relationship with him, u shd also reason with him on some things. and when its getting out of hands alert the appropriate authorities. NEVER NEVER TAKE LAW INTO UR OWN HANDS, Above all prayer is the key bcos satan is after marriages to break them ok, why is it that most of those living together without properly getting married stay together, but couples in marriage fight and break up easily? (NAIJAGIST POST MY COMMENT OHHHHHHHH)

  5. Well the pastor did not do well at all by stabbing the wife, should in case she died what will the pastor tell God whom who preaches on his behalf. But the wife, patience is the cause of the whole problem how could she be selling on Sunday when your husband was in the church preaching, you yourself is another devil. Remember the bible says woman be submissive to your husband. May it was your response to your husband that made him to matched you. Please patient remember to put God face in anything you do because he is the one that gives power over wealth.

  6. THE PASTOR HEAR THE VOICE OF ANGEL RAMAN , AND HE HAS TO DO WHAT THE ANGEL TOLD HIM TO DO.

    YOU ARE THE OMO ODO RERE , I SAY TO YOU HAPPY KIRIYO IN JAIL , YOU HAVE A GREAT KIRIYO BLESSING.

    I HOPE YOU WILL NOW HAVE A BETTER FASTING AND DELIVERANCE AT KIRIKIRI, SAY ALELOYA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALELOYA HAPPY CHRISTY.

    HA HE HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
