Founder of Agape Evangelical Ministries arrested following death of female evangelist in guest house

The police in Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State have taken Bishop Otu Timothy, the founder of Agape Evangelical Ministries (City of Miracles), into custody following the death of a married female evangelist and mother of five, identified as “Evangelist Happiness,” in a guest house.

The incident occurred at the Jubilee Guest House in the Ogborhill area of Aba on the evening of August 12th, 2023. Bishop Otu had allegedly left the inn, claiming to buy food, but never returned. Suspecting something was amiss, the guest house manager alerted the Eastern Ngwa Police Station, leading to the discovery of the victim’s lifeless body in a room. She was found naked and foaming from the mouth and nose.

At present, Bishop Otu is being detained at the Eastern Ngwa Police Station, where authorities continue to investigate the matter.
