A pastor with Living Faith Church, aka Winners Chapel, in Okuokoko, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State, is currently on the run after he allegedly attempted to kill his teenage female house help.

The house help identified as Favour was allegedly attacked severely on the head by her master, Diya, for using a tin of milk to eat cassava flakes popularly known as garri.

A member of the church, who preferred not to be mentioned, confirmed the incident to SaharaReporters, alleging that the pastor and his wife were known to abuse the house help many times for no just cause.
A Warri-based human rights activist, Israel Joe, while speaking on the incident, condemned the pastor’s action, adding that when the issue was brought to his notice he directed that the girl be rushed to the hospital.

In his words;

“Pastor Solomon Diya has allegedly made attempt on the life of his home help on Tuesday, April 5. The issue was reported and we directed that the girl be rushed to the hospital.”

“The suspect has been invited by the police in Orerokpe but he’s invading arrest and if by Monday (April 11) he refused to turn himself up to the police, we shall obtain a warrant of arrest on him. When did using a tin of milk to drink garri constitute an offence of attempting to kill her?

“Can the pastor treat his own children that way if they also use his tin of milk? The mother of the girl arrived from Imo State today and we shall all ventilate our grievances accordingly. All the neighbours have complained how the pastor and his wife keep maltreating this girl. It will happen no more.”
