Popular Ghanaian pastor shoots his wife dead in the US

A US-based Ghanaian Pastor identified as Sylvester Ofori has shot his beautiful wife Barbara Tommey dead.

The incident as reported is said to have happened on Tuesday morning 8th September 2020 at Navy Federal Credit Union near the Mall at Millenia in Orlando.


Barbara was shot by Sylvester, near the business’ front doors on the 4600 block of Gardens Park Boulevard just before 9 a.m., an Orlando Police Department spokesperson said.

Tommey was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. A search warrant was served at the Ofori’s apartment, where he was taken into custody, police said.

Investigators said the shooting was captured on surveillance video.“You can tell that she’s trying to get inside (the credit union).

Unfortunately, he shoots her,” Police Chief Orlando Rolon said. “You can tell she was surprised by what was happening.”

A witness who only provided the first name of Lisa told News 6 she saw the whole thing as she was waiting outside before the bank opened.“I’m shaken up right now, I’m still shaken up,” she said.

By reports, Ofori, 35, was taken into custody at his apartment Tuesday evening, the OPD spokesperson said. He is being held at the Orange County Jail without bond on a charge of first-degree murder with a firearm.
