She was said to be found dead at a hotel owned by a former law maker in the Edo State House of Assembly.

The late female gospel singer was allegedly lodged into the hotel by a Lagos-based Pastor whose name was given as Apostle Psalm Okpe of the Fresh Oil Ministry.

The husband of the deceased who was given as Odion,  spoke to journalists in Benin, saying his wife met Apostle Okpe on Facebook and after several months of chatting, the man of God invited his wife to perform at his programme to be held in Benin, Warri and Asaba.

He said he was aware of everything about the arrangement concerning the programme and his wife’s involvement.

“My wife left for Warri on Thursday to perform at the program, and on Friday morning at about 10 am, she called to inform me that she would soon be home. 

“I did not hear from her again until at about 9:30 pm, when the police used my wife’s phone to call and invited me to report at the Airport Road police station, where I waited for more than two hours at the police station until the police asked me to go home, but I insisted on knowing the whereabouts of my wife.

“The DPO later told me that my wife was picked at a hotel in the GRA and rushed to the Benin Central Hospital where she was confirmed dead. “I am yet to see the corpse of my wife to know want happen and who is responsible for her death. We have a son that will be three-year old by June 25,” he narrated.
When contacted on phone, Chris Ezike who is the state commissioner of police confirmed the death of the woman. He however refused to confirm any arrest. “We are not looking for anyone. We have everything to conclude our investigation. 

“The man is married and the woman is married. Not until a post mortem is conducted, we cannot conclude what happened. I have asked the matter to be transferred to the State CID” He also added that a post mortem examination will confirm the cause of death.

He also stated that autopsy will ascertain the cause of death.
