Pastor Raphael Happy-Ikenwilo, 53 – pictured above with his wife Jennifer – died in Maryland, Baltimore, last Saturday after being hit by a car then stabbed several times.
According to this report, the pastor claimed he was sent to the US by God in 2012, and that he had been he trained by angels as a doctor in “spiritual sciences” in order to cure cancers caused by occult forces.
The suspect, identified as Daniel Patrick Degoto, 41, surrendered himself to police. He was later charged with first-degree murder after the pastor – of Rahamis Ministry International Church – died hours later at a local hospital.
Baltimore County Police said in a release:
Detectives determined that the suspect dropped off his wife in the parking lot of the location (church) and saw the victim getting out of his car, while the victim’s wife was seated in his car. The suspect rammed his car into the victim and the victim’s car. The victim’s wife was not injured in the collision.
The suspect then stabbed the victim numerous times. The suspect drove from the area and afterwards turned himself into authorities at the Howard County Detention Center.
Police said that they were unable to release a motive for the murder as the case was still being investigated.
In a 2014 Indiegogo campaign, which raised $25 of a $6 million goal, the pastor, a father of two, suggested his life and the life of his family was in danger from witch doctors who didn’t want him exposing their cancer-causing activities. He said:
We know about them in Africa, but America has its own set, much more organised, subtle, demonically wicked and dangerous, they follow an organised and planned agenda, meet periodically in the state of North Carolina and prey on innocent victims everywhere in the USA. Because they act from the spiritual realm, many cancers have no pathological reason or explanations
When these occult workers saw that I have discovered their activities, they warned me not to reveal anything about my discovery to anyone and since then, my life and that of my relatives have been on the verge.
I graduated in 2005 from the spiritual realm as a doctor in spiritual sciences. As a minister, I deal with cases of ‘Fake Cancer’ and others sicknesses from the occult the past 22 years. I’m very well acquainted with the occult realm and their operations and came to the US … to investigate about cancer mandated by the creator of heaven and earth.
In his most recent fundraising campaign to raise $20,000 for his ministry in July, Ikenwilo appears with his wife and talks about a mission to heal Africa and the world. He raised $50 of his goal.
The man was clearly bonkers, but certainly did not deserve to come to such a sticky end.
