Founder and pastor in charge of Victor’s Church, Ilorin, Kwara State, Folayemi Richard, has reportedly beaten his pregnant wife, Odunola, to coma over a rift between them.

The cleric committed the assault in their residence located at Ita Olodan, Upper Gaa-Akanbi in Ilorin town.

The wife, while speaking with an online medium, The Informant, said the incident occurred in January 2021 when their wedding was three months old and her pregnancy was a month old.

The woman lamented that even when she collapsed, her husband kept torturing her, brutalising her with a cable wire. She said a neighbour, who is an older woman, came to mediate for her but was overpowered and pushed aside.

Odunola said she had been experiencing marital turbulence since their marriage in late September 2020, adding that the man had once beaten her till she became unconscious.

“Last year, September 26, we got married, and we’ve been living together as husband and wife. When our wedding was one month old, that was when a terrible crisis occurred. We had a disagreement.

Suddenly, he ordered me to stand up and that he would take me to a hospital, where he would dump me. “He started insulting my parents; I cautioned him. He slapped me and began to beat me.

He got a cable wire which we use for speakers in the church and beat me. “I started shouting for help. I became so weak. I dashed out of the house; he followed me and started dragging me on the ground, saying he did not want the marriage again.

“At this time, people had already gathered and were begging him. He locked me out and went to my parents. When he came back again, he ordered me to leave his home,” she narrated.

One of the eyewitnesses, Victoria Oluwaseun, confirmed the pastor dragged his wife out, beating her without considering the pregnancy.
