The Edo State Commissioner of Police, Chris Ezike, has faulted Mr. Odion Omoarebokha, husband of the late gospel singer, Yvonne for accusing Apostle Psalm Okpe of the Fresh Oil Ministry of drugging his wife to death.
The deceased husband had claimed the Idoma-born preacher killed his wife with high substance that the body could not take after inviting her for an event in South Southern part of the country.
He said, “I have seen my wife’s body; there is no mark on her. From what I observed, I think she was given an overdose of a substance I do not know. Probably, her system could not take it.
“I want the police to follow this case because I know that pastor Psalm Okpe killed my wife. So, I want the law to make sure he does not go unpunished,” Omoarebokha he claimed.
Reacting to Omoarebokha’s claim, the police warned him against saying what he knows nothing about.
According to the police commissioner, “The matter is under investigation. Autopsy was conducted on Saturday; as I speak to you, I’ve not received the autopsy report. Not until I have the autopsy report before me, I will not be able to say the cause of death.
“People should also not delve into areas where they have little competence. For somebody who is not a doctor or who has not been advised as such to hold an opinion where you have little competence is also not correct.
“They should allow the investigation to run to its conclusion. If they are not satisfied, they can go further; they can petition the IG. The matter can be taken over from Abuja but it will amount to overheating the polity for people to be making comments while matters are under investigation.
“We are very open in matters we do. We have not recovered any substance,” he added
