Authorities at the Eastern Ngwa Police Station in Obingwa Local Government have taken into custody the General Overseer of Agape Evangelical Ministries (City of Miracles), situated at Obikabia Junction in Aba, Abia State. This action follows the death of a married female evangelist and mother of five, known as “Evangelist Happiness,” who had checked into the Jubilee Guest House Ovom, Ogborhill.
Sources from the police indicate that the incident occurred at approximately 11 pm on Saturday, August 12, 2023. Allegedly, the bishop, with whom she was staying, absconded after telling the receptionist that he was heading out to purchase food at that late hour.
According to information, the hotel manager, sensing something amiss, promptly alerted the Eastern Ngwa Police Station in Obingwa Local Government Area, around 1 am on Sunday morning. Upon the arrival of the Nigerian Police officers at the hotel, they discovered the woman unclothed and with foam emerging from her mouth and nose.

Upon inspecting her phone, it was revealed that the deceased, who was a mother of five children, was affiliated with the Agape Evangelical Ministries Incorporated, founded by Bishop Timothy Otu. Investigative details disclosed that the woman and the bishop had been involved in a romantic relationship, which was evident through the text messages found on her phone.
The law enforcement officials pursued the bishop, tracing him to his church at Obikabia Junction. Despite his ongoing Sunday service centered on repentance, he was arrested, with his sermon allowed to conclude before his apprehension. He is presently in custody at the Eastern Ngwa Police Station Obingwa.
The late Evangelist Happiness, a mother of five, hailed from Umuatakawom in Obingwa. Tragically, the incident occurred while her husband was away working in Bayelsa State.
