Pandemonium rocked the oil city of Warri in Delta State yesterday as a man described as pastor to the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Orubebe was shot dead by gunmen on Tuesday night. Sources said the cleric, identified as Bishop Slyvanus Keneri Kenikede was gunned down at about 11.30pm along Ughelli Agbarho Road.

the cleric, a close confidant of Elder Orubebe battled with life at a nearby hospital throughout Tuesday night but gave up the ghost in the early hours of Wednesday. The deceased, who is the founder and General Overseer of Voice of Faith Ministry, located in the Sokoh Estate area of Effurun was returning from one of the displaced persons' camps after donating relief materials when he met his death. State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ikechukwu Aduba confirmed the report.

Aduba, who spoke through the Police Public Relations's Officer, DSP Charles Muoka, said efforts had been stepped up to apprehend the fleeing suspects who carried out the dastardly act. Scores of the members who thronged the place wept profusely. A young man, who managed to speak on the sad event, described as unbelievable that the cleric was dead. "We are yet to believe that our amiable daddy (Bishop) is no more.

The people that killed him will not escape the judgment of God and will definitely burn in hell,"he said. A close friend of the deceased, Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin, described the incident as unfortunate and unpardonable. "Killing a man of God is a grievous sin to be committed by the perpetrators. It is definitely a curse and heavy punishment from God Almighty," said Fufeyin, who is the general overseer of Christ Mercyland Ministry based in Effurun, near Warri.

Fufeyin, who was on his way to Christian pilgrimage in the Holy Land, however, urged the family to take heart and look unto God our saviour and redeemer. Effort to reach the minister, Orubebe proved abortive but a family member who could not control her emotion, described the deceased as a humble and God fearing man, who participated fully in a prayer meeting held last two Saturdays at Orubebe's church located at his home town,Ogbogbabene in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State. Meanwhile, the remains of the deceased has been deposited at the Warri Central Hospital morgue. No fewer than six pastor's have been killed in similar way while few others committed suicide.
