A Ghanaian pastor, Sylvester Ofori, who killed his wife, Barbara Tommey on Tuesday in Orlando, US, had earlier issued her death threats.
In a video which has gone viral online, Ofori was seen threatening to kill his estranged wife when she came to pack her things from his house.
Tommey, 27, was said to have walked out of the marriage and filed for divorce three months before she was killed by her husband.
In the video, Ofori had a scuffle with his deceased wife’s brother when he came along with his sister to pack her belongings from the house.
He also called her a witch and issued a threat that if he didn’t kill her then he was fake!
Though the brother-in-law said he would call in the cops due to the treats, his siter begged him not to.
Ofori has been arrested for shooting his wife dead. He killed Barbara Tommey outside the Navy Federal Credit Union branch where she worked.
Orlando Police Department Chief said she was shot and killed as she arrived for work on Tuesday morning.
Ofori reportedly shot Tommey multiple times before fleeing the scene.
He was later arrested by detectives of the Orlando Police Department.
Police said a warrant was served at the suspect’s apartment and Ofori taken into custody.
“You can tell that she’s trying to get inside (the credit union). Unfortunately, he killed her,” Police Chief Orlando Rolon said.
“You can tell she was surprised by what was happening.”
An eyewitness, who only provided her first name as Lisa, spoke with local media, saying Ofori was walking behind her before he brought out his gun and shot her.
“The guy was walking behind her. The next thing I knew, he raised his hand with the gun in it and he shot her.
“I started running and as I’m running, I hear three or four more shots.
“I’m shaken up right now, I’m still shaken up,” she said. The police added that the shooting was captured on surveillance video, adding that Ofori will face a charge of first degree murder with a firearm.
He has been taken to court.
