It was a rain of tears and curses at Okpuno-Etiti, Oba community in Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State, as Mrs. Nkechi Juliet Onyejegbu, who was brutally murdered in November 2015 by people suspected to be members of her mother’s maternal relations, was buried.

Late Onyejegbu was hacked to death with machete one evening. She was the wife of Godfrey Onyejegbu, a retired army colonel attached to United States Army, as well as the Director of Women Affairs at the Idemili South Local Government Area Chapter of the Governor Willie Obiano Support Group (WOSG).
Tears flowed freely as she was lowered into her grave at about 1pm on Friday, February 3, in her husband’s compound in Oba, shortly after a funeral church service by officiating ministers from the Pentecostal Truth Mission (PTM) Nnewi and the Great Army Intercessors Ministry.

In his sermon, Evangelist Charles Obiagbaoso of the PTM declared that the wrath of God will surely visit her killers, unless they confess their sins and repent.

He called on people that are prone to committing such heinous crimes to bear in mind that judgement of God is awaiting them, adding that anyone indulging in crime is indirectly saying that there is no God, “like the fool said.”

Obiagboso vowed that Mrs. Onyejegbu’s killers will never go unpunished, saying that her death has served as a liberation for the entire Onyejegbu family.

The evangelist said: “God knows that the acrimony in Onyejegbu’s family is so deep that a human sacrifice is required to cleanse it. So He sent Nkechi all the way from Onicha Igboeze in Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State to come and marry in Oba so as to shed her blood for the liberation of the family, like a sacrificial lamb and henceforth, Onyjegbu’s family will never witness rancour again in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

In a brief chat with News Express, the widower, Col. Godfrey Onyejegbu (rtd.), said he was appalled that after all his petitions to the Anambra State Government and the police authorities both in Anambra and Abuja, no tangible thing had been done to fish out the culprits, except for one person who is now in prison custody.

He recalled that the acrimony had started some years ago when he was in the military service in the US and was sending money home to his maternal relations to build his house but that after sending up to N42 million and the house was yet to be completed, the late Nkechi left her base in Lagos and rushed home purposely to supervise the building project until it was completed, “which might have pitched her against his maternal relations, leading to their wanting her dead.”

The grieving husband, however, said that he had taken solace from the appearance of his late wife in a vision where she told him to stop crying and leave the fight against her killers for her.
